We had some of our favorite foods this week. We also had some new foods, and some food that didn’t come out so well.
A roast with vegetables cooked in the slow cooker is one of my families favorite meals. Last week, we had a venison roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions.

And the meal on the table. Yum!
My daughter and I made Fried Oreos. Neither of us had made them, or eaten, them before. My son has made them for the youth at church, so I knew how he did it.
The Fried Oreos came out great. It was not really what I expected. I guess I thought the cookie would still be like the cookie. Instead the cookie was all melty. One good thing is that they were so rich that you can’t eat more than a couple. Unless you are a teenager. They had no problem eating several. lol
We had Beef Fajitas on taco night. I cut sliced one of the roasts I got on sale. It doesn’t look like a lot of food in the picture. But it was just over 2 pounds of meat, 2 onions, and 3 (or was it 4?) Green peppers. It made enough that I was able to get 2 meals out of it!
I have been trying some recipes from a cookbook I am in the processing reviewing. I tried the Butter Chicken recipe. It looked pretty good. I didn’t really care for the flavor, though. My family ate it up with no complaints, so I guess it was just me. lol
And just so you don’t think that everything is perfect in my kitchen…..
I burned the rice! That makes me angry at myself. I hate wasting food!
