For most of the day yesterday I was afraid of the roast in my fridge. It was a very large, very good roast, bought for our seder. See, I had never cooked a roast before and it just seemed like the sort of thing that you could really mess up royally and everyone would be sad. But I didn't mess it up. It came out beautifully, and I am again amazed by the wonderful things that meat does if you just put it on the oven with some salt and pepper.

The macaroons came out pretty good too. And, they take a better picture than the meat.


Happy Passover!

Roast and macaroons are my favorites. I would have a roast every week if I could. I have also made macaroons with fat free condensed milk and they still tasted great.

Happy Passover to you! Ooh, homemade macaroons! Man, I just bet that they taste way better than the canned ones from Manischewitz. And roasts are the best meals. So easy to make and as an added bonus, they make the house smell delightful!
