Tangy Spiced Roast

Food Friday, is Food Monday for this post.

The Tangy Spiced Brisket recipe at Smitten Kitchen sounded wonderful to me. However, brisket is a little expensive at the grocery store we shop at, so I bought roast instead, after all, I still wanted to try the recipe. Since my roast was smaller than 8-10lbs, I just halved the recipe. I was sure I would like it and the boy would think it was okay.

However, the boy loved it and I thought it was okay! Quirky the way things work out. :)

Also with dinner that night I made Rosemary seasoned potatoes. Now I am sure most of you are thinking, "so what?!?". Well, I personally hate the texture of rosemary. It gets between my teeth, ugh, I just don't like it. I love the taste of Rosemary though. A new spice store opened up two blocks away from my apartment, called Penzeys Spices. They sell Powdered Rosemary! I had never seen this before and bought some to try. It is a marvelous thing!

A nice dinner it turned out to be. I used the leftover roast to make quesadillas . . . boy were they delicious! (Yes, sometimes I cheat and eat gluten . . . I am still working the kinks out, I might try corn tortillas next time though.) Will definitely use this recipe again.


  1. I had my first fish taco last night. I want more!!! It's funny how things work out when you try something new, isn't it?

  2. I will have to try that powdered rosemary when I am over your way. Good job on dinner.
