Pot Roast Update

Well, I did it and it was good...way good. But, if I were to take pictures, mine wouldn't look as good as the originals. And the spices should have been placed in a cheesecloth bag to avoid the rosemary leaves floating about in the gravy. Now I am waiting for her next pot roast recipe.

I should also include the fact that we used 'instant' mashed potatoes. If you can tell the difference between those and the real deal; more power to you! I used Paradise Valley Yukon Gold potatoes, from Winnemucca? Now I have been to Winnemucca before and I did not see anything resembling paradise, but hey! I could be wrong.

If you follow the link above and scroll down, you will see that Costco no longer stocks this product and that's a shame. I suppose I could drive to Paradise Valley?

What are we going to do?

Let's see; if Kevin goes fishing at Pyramid Lake, it's only a few more hours from there to Winnemucca...Possible?

He can't go there anymore - the Reservation closed the fishing again.....We are going to Tahoe at the end of the month - have far from there?

According to my map program...it's ONLY 273.2 miles from Tahoe City to Paradise Valley.(4 hours and 37 minutes)
