Roast Beef Dinner & House Pics

Please CLICK HERE for more information on two great causes going on THIS Saturday, May 14th!

Last night I made a roast beef and potatoes alongside. On the stove top I made some green beans, much like this recipe.

It was really good, even though I wanted the meat a little more rare. I'm so not good at judging when is the best time to pull it out and how long to let it rest, etc.

Some house update pics, for those of you following along:

J modeling the size of the new fireplace. He's 6' for reference.

Downstairs closet and bathroom doors hung and framed out.

My daddy staining the doors.

The doors off, some shelves hung, and the frames stained.

A patch of grass in the backyard we accidentally killed. Whoops!

200' of baseboard stained. (Dad's working on installing it downstairs right now.)

I've never made roast beef, but that looks tasty!

I'm the same way with cooking meat christina - either I take it out way too early or too late!

Your house is coming together - it's nice to have handy relatives around!

It looking great Christina!

125 is the magic temp for pulling off meat for medium rare - let it rest a minimum of 20 minutes (30 is better) wrapped in foil and it will be perfect every time.

Happy Thursday!!
