Dad's Roast

*gran, me, grandmama @ my bridesmaids luncheon!

whew...i've been away for a while & haven't been able to post for some time {some due to vaca, some due to my grandmother's passing}. my grandmother was such a special person in my life & between she & my dad, i'd say they are the two that influence me to cook as much as i do....oh, & my husband's desire to eat dinner every night!

anywho, she's in an awesome place & isn't suffering & will be reading {shugart & spice} from afar & making recommendations from the big table above! one thing my gran was passionate about was feeding the masses; we laughed this week b/c we hosted a lunch for any & everybody who was at the funeral at my parents house...quite the southern tradition! with TONS of leftover food, we donated fried chicken breasts, broccoli salad, pasta salad, potato salad, fruit, pimento cheese sandwiches & desserts to an alcoholic medical center & it felt so RIGHT! not only were the guys who accepted the food so thankful & appreciative, i think it was a sign from gran sending so much catered food to the soiree so it could be donated!

and since justin & i will only be home for 2 days this week, i brought back some delicious beef tips that a good friend of my parents made. our family received some of the best food from loving friends & family over the past week {another southern tradition i appreciate-homemade food in the midst of heartache}. once i get the recipe, i will definitely post! in the mean time, i'm sending you my dad's recipe for the easiest roast in the world! i LOVE this dish because it reminds me of home & it's super easy. try this with summer veggies tonight!!
