In my kitchen, I have a roast in the crockpot for tonight's supper. I was talking with my dear friend Linda from Parker's Paradise the other day about recipes, and I told her I read somewhere that if you rubbed lard or Crisco on the top of your roast before cooking, it would help seal in the moisture and keep it juicy and tender. I've never heard of this before, so today I'm going to give it a try. I'll let you know how it turns out.
From my sewing room, I've been creating some pumpkins. My "real" pumpkins didn't make it- we planted too late. So, I've been busy just making my own... and even though there will be no pies coming from these, I'm still having fun. Who knows, I might even decide to give one away next week.... stay tuned.
(Did I just say... GIVEAWAY?! Nothing like a weekend cliffhanger, huh?)
Have a great weekend, everybody!
