We have moved! HA!
Cars of beauty and art:
1938 Jaguar, this would suit me to tool around in, IN FLORIDA!
Yep we have moved. We moved out of the motor home into the guest house in anticipation of the motor home going to the MH Hospital, aka KARV RV repair in Debary. That is only about 8 miles away.
We have done this now two or three times in the last couple months. We are still not good at it. I built us a temp computer desk. It puts me closer to my Sweetheart. I can kiss her a lot now. TRUE!

I do have a question about cooking. Yesterday was my time to cook. I had decided to do a ‘beef roast’. I have never fixed a roast (that I remember). At the neighborhood mkt I picked a nice piece of beef, fairly cheap, Chuck Roast. I figured even if it was tough, the pressure cooker would take care of that. I browned it, added some beef broth, then an extra tsp of Beef powder. I have no idea about herbs and spices so I always use Mrs. Dash. Since Garlic is supposed to help you live forever I use a tbsp of minced. I chopped a half onion and pressured it all for 14 minutes. Dropped the pressure and added 5 potatoes quartered, 4 carrots and the rest of the onion. Threw in some salt and pepper. Then pressured it all for another 12-13 minutes.
I thickened the juice and served my pretty wife. She said it was wonderful. BUT it was a little tough to me. The flavors were great together. We have had it two days now and still have beef leftover.
NOW, what cut of meat would have been better? I mean actually tenderer? I don’t expect it to melt in my mouth but I want it tender.
I got sidetracked on the cooking.
About our short move. I have made at least 8 trips back out to the Coach to get something we forgot. We like the little house but actually I think the motor home has a bigger kitchen and more storage. I haven’t cooked here yet. I am guessing we will be here for at least 7 days before the coach actually leaves here, then 4-6 days for the work. So I will get a chance to try the kitchen out. I have an electric pressure cooker here that has never been tried. Friend Evelyn has one and says I will really like it.
Do you use a pressure cooker?
PS: Would adding wine to the broth before pressure tenderize the meat?
