It is gloomy here in Texas. It doesn’t quite rise to the levels of blustery, but it is definitely grey, overcast, and slightly chilly.
Mod R is out today for a medical procedure, so you have to put up with me prattling on about random business and life nonsense.
First, I have some great news. We’ve met with our agent team via Google meets yesterday and both SOTH and Magic Tides sold very well. This allows us to have a bit of leeway with longer projects and lets us know that our plan for the year is on the right track. So yay!
You should see some updates to release schedule around February.
Also, Graphic Audio found Curran and Doolittle will be voiced true to Gullah roots. So a win all around.
Our January sucked on so many levels, mostly health related. Let’s just say that I’m the last woman standing, flu is awful, and antibiotic-resistant infections are a horrible, horrible thing, especially when they happen to your child. So I’m fuzzy and tired, and today might be the store design day. We need to put two more design product lines up and I have been cooking and brewing Theraflu instead.
Speaking of cooking, today also might be a take out day. I’ve been making things like soups, stews, and shepherd pies, (cottage pies, technically, since it’s beef not lamb,) but I’m super-tired, and I don’t think dealing with the open flame today is the best idea. I’m going to get more caffeine after I write this. Hehehe.
I thought about Instapotting a Mississippi roast, but I’m not sure if Gordon is sick of potato-beef combo. For those of you who never made one,
- 1 chuck roast,
- 1 packet of Hidden Valley ranch mix,
- 1 packet of Au Jus mix,
- 1 cup of beef broth or water
Sprinkle the mix over the meat, put it into Instapot, pour the broth on the side, cook on high pressure for about an hour. Can also be slowcooked for about 6-8 hours on low or high heat, either way works.
It’s a set it and forget it. The meat falls apart and you serve it with potatoes, while the left over liquid makes a good gravy.
Update: Gordon read over my shoulder and informed me that he isn’t sick of beef and potatoes, so Mississippi roast it is.
Now it’s your turn. What’s your go-to “somebody is sick” recipe?
