Potluck Sunday 020710-Home-Style Pot Roast W/Vegetables

Our potluck last Sunday was small.  Due to various factors weather, Super Bowl Sunday, and vacations we missed out on the companionship of friends.  However for the ones that remained we shared an awesome meal and naturally talked about the friends that were missing.   This Sunday the menu was as follows:

  • Carol - Home Style Pot Roast with Vegetables and Cornbread
  • Ginny- Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream

First, I selected a beautiful chuck roast from the Second Street Public Market vendor Eat Food For Life, Kremer Family Farm.   The farm is a 140-acre, certified organic, family farm located in northern Darke county near North Star, Ohio.  The Kremer's  family mission is to grow and distribute nutritious, safe foods that nourish, protect, and support life for improved health and energy.   It was worth every penny.  The roast was used for potluck on Sunday and then on Monday I used the leftovers and made vegetable soup.  The roast went a long way and a value in the long run.
