Well, my husband and I decided to start doing Weight Watchers...not "formally" or anything, but just following the whole point system. I need to lose those last few pounds from when I had my little girl and my husband...well, he needs to lose the weight he gained with me throughout both pregnancies and kept on :) His weight gain doesn't bother me from a "physical standpoint", but as a nurse, I worry from a "health perspective". Needless to say, this recipe probably was not the best choice for dinner, but it is SO hard for me to resist these delicious recipes I've been trying!!! I purposely "banked" my points throughout the day so I could indulge myself this evening :) I did not have any savory or ground mustard, so I substituted marjoram, sage and Dijon mustard, per a reviewer's recommendation. I also did not want to press my luck and make the sauce, so I cannot tell you firsthand how it was, but it looked great, so I figured I'd go ahead and include it! PLEASE let me know if any of you make it...I'd love to know your thoughts...or know if I should remove it if it's awful!
SAUCE: 1 cup sour cream 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions: In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Rub over entire roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender and reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees F; medium, 160 degrees F; well-done, 170 degrees F). Let stand 10 minutes before carving.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with the roast.
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
