My dad is visiting from Florida this coming weekend. My sister is graduating from college, and we're very excited to celebrate all weekend long! I had planned to make a Standing Rib Roast Friday night for dinner. I anticipated this would be an expensive cut of meat, but when I Googled (how did I live before Google?) to get an idea of exactly how much, I see most are well over $100! Not sure if this pricing is typical, but I won't be purchasing this. I'm pretty disappointed because I have a recipe I wanted to try complete with Yorkshire Pudding, which will have to wait.
Instead, I've decided to make a Pot Roast in my slow-cooker with vegetables and en lieu of the traditional Yorkshire Pudding, I'll make fresh popovers. Or, if I make a roast in my oven, does anyone know if I'll get enough juices and drippings to make the Yorkshire Pudding anyway? The only time I've made a roast was in the slow-cooker..... Either way, my dad simply adores this type of cooking, and I know he'll be freezing, so hopefully it'll be a hit and warm him up!
What do you all think I should plan for dessert? I was thinking maybe some Christmas Cookies or a Pumpkin Pie? Thoughts?
