here's my favorite dinner ever
Yankee Pot Roast
2 tablespoons salad oil/olive oil
4.5 boneless beef pot roast
2 teaspoons salt (I usually only use 1 cause I don't like salty things)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 bay leef
beef bouillon cubes (1 cube per cup of water)
1. Brown roast in hot oil over medium-high heat
2. Stir in salt, sugar, pepper, thyme, bay leaf and 3 cups water (add 1 bouillon cube per 1 cup water. add more water if roast is not fully covered) Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for at least 3 hours
1/2 cold water
Mix flour in water until smooth. Take liquid from roast and put in small pan, stir in flower mixture. Still until thick.

This is also a big comfort food of mine because it reminds me of my family. It takes no time to make so you can spend more time having wine with your blues while the comfort food cooks
1 pound linguine (can substitute spaghetti, spagettini, fettucine, etc.)
red pepper flakes (like 1/2 tsp. or more if you like it hot)
5-10 garlic cloves, sliced (10+ in my house)
fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese
1.) Fill pot with water, a few dashes of salt, and a teaspoon or so of e.v.o.o. and bring to boil. Add pasta.
2.) While pasta cooks according to directions on the box, cover the bottom of a large pan with e.v.o.o. (a few turns of the pan) and add the garlic and red pepper over medium heat so the garlic softens but doesn't burn. If it starts cooking too fast, turn the heat down and let it hang out.
3.) Drain pasta and reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water.
4.) *do not rinse pasta* place it in the pan with the oil and toss it all together, adding the pasta water a little at a time for flavor and moisture
5.) Garnish with parsley and cheese
My hubby is a carnivore but devours this meat-free dish every time )
