The Virus, my Husband and the Pot Roast

It's been awhile since I did my last post and visited some of my friends' blogs. Oh well, guess what happened? I got infected by a virus or a trojan that won't just go away! What a pain! Anyway, I was able to get rid of it. It, however, entailed reformatting my computer, reinstalling my OS, and redoing other applications. Last Saturday, my husband was home at last. Noah, who was sleeping then, suddenly lifted his head, said "Dada", and roared like a lion, as soon as he heard his Daddy's voice. It's so funny. :) Hubby was excited to show me and Noah what he bought for us. He got Noah some soccer shirts, signed by the players themselves, and bracelet and Dark Chocolate Toblerone for me. :) Night before the day he arrived, I cooked his favorite meal, which is Pot Roast. I cooked it again the following day to be sure the beef won't be tough to eat. The way I prepare it is so simple. First, I rub the meat with salt and pepper. Then, I brown the sides. After which, I pour an onion soup mix. If the beef is not tender yet, I just add some amount of water. When it's about to get done, I pour a can of cream of mushroom soup to thicken the sauce and make a gravy out of it. I put potatoes and carrots near the end. This simple recipe was actually shared to me by his good Mom. I am not sure though if this is exactly how she cooks Pot Roast. But, my hubby likes it a lot so I guess I got it right. :)

I hate those computer viruses! What a pain! Yum...pot roast! I fix mine pretty much the same way. I cook mine in a crock pot all day, and the hubby loves it. It's good for me, too cuz I don't have to worry about it at all.
