One of my favorite times to bake or cook is for those that mean the most to me. Nathan is my absolute favorite person to cook for, and cooking for his family is very important to me, or better yet that they like what I make. At the risk of sounding old fashion or dated, I really do want to be that wife and mother who cooks and bakes on a regular basis. Some of my fondest memories as a child were being in the kitchen with my grandmother baking (my favorite part was the flour sifter lol), and watching my mother in the kitchen cooking dinner, but not following a recipe but using her sense to determine the right flavors.
Needless to say, today's post is about not one, not two, and but three recipes! I made Nathan and his father a yummy chuck roast dinner last night with all the fixings. I went out immediately after to spend some quality with Nathan's aunt, so I only got the "thanks for dinner Canuckette, that was good". So of course when I returned later that evening, I asked Nathan what his dad really thought, and this is the direct quote from his father,"girl can cook". This makes me very happy because I love knowing how much his family likes me, family is very important to me, and when you date someone, you connect two families together, and that is precisely what I want. So for dinner last night I made a chuck roast with roasted potatoes, onions, carrots, corn, gravy, and Yorkshire pudding (a little bit of English to our country dinner). Everything is relatively simple to make, but remember as with anything you make, make it from the heart ;)
Okay on to the recipes!!
