A meal, fit for a queen...

Well, I made the roast and used the home grown veggies. The cubed steak was skillet fried in canola oil with a coating of flour, salt and pepper. Then, I put the steaks (6 cubes) in the baking dish while I mixed two packs of onion soup mix with 2 cups of water and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Then I put all of that mixture in the skillet to mix with the drippings from the steak frying. Then, I poured the mixture in the baking dish with the cubed steaks and moved the steaks around to get gravy all over them. I then put a lid on the baking dish and put it in the oven at 375 for 2 hours. I actually had to lower the oven temp after an hour to 350 since it looked like it was really boiling.

The potatoes were all peeled and boiled and then whipped with an electric hand mixer. Kent does those because his turn out so creamy. Everyone loves them at the holidays!!!

The green beans were steamed in the steamer for 25 minutes and tasted great with a little salt and butter added.

The corn was boiled on the stove for 30 minutes. It was the bi-colored corn like Zellwood has this time of year.

Kent made biscuits using the Betty Crocker Buttermilk Biscuit mix from Sam's (Orlando stores don't seem to carry it so we get ours from Johnson City, TN). He has become very proficient at making biscuits and these were the best so far!

We opened a bottle of White Merlot (my favorite at the taste testing in California at the Sutter Home winery) and enjoyed a couple of glasses with dinner. A great combination!!!

Successful meal, happy tummies, nice evening!
