Important Re Post:



What are P.G.S…?

P.G.’s are procrastination goals, these are the goals that are not on our top priority list. For example, for the past several months, I have had several boxes of clothes to sort through, then make a determination which ones to donate to Good Will. Also, I had 2 pictures to hang up, which did not get done until a month after setting the goal of hanging the pictures.

The above goals represent procrastination goals, which are essentially goals without an established timeline for achieving them, thus these goals get put off indefinitely. As we know inherent in these goals is the reality that they often continue to get put off, and frequently never get accomplished.




*With half of 2020 behind us, it is time to reflect on the goals that you established or the goals that you did not establish for this year…

What has been working for you in terms of accomplishing your goals, and what modifications do you need to make to accomplish your goals for the remainder of 2020?

One to Remember…


Classic Pot Roast

This recipe provides 8 servings.


Ingredients:


1)    2 pounds chuck roast
2)    10 cloves garlic, halved
3)    1 teaspoon sea salt
4)    Pepper to taste
5)    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
6)    4 medium or 3 large carrots, cut into large bit sized chunks
7)    2 onions, thinly sliced
8)    2 bay leaves
9)    4 cups dry white wine


Instructions:


1)    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F., using the tip of a paring knife, make 10 ¾ inch deep slits on each side of the roast. Insert a garlic clove half into each slit. Season the meat all over with the salt and pepper.

2)    Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Gently set the roast in it and sear all over, turning with tongs, until well browned, approximately 10 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan to a plate.

3)    Add the carrots, onions, and bay leaves to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring up the crispy bits at the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Return the roast to the pot, laying it on top of the vegetables. Cover and roast for 1 hour 30 minutes. Flip the meat over, and cook until fork-tender, approximately 1 hour more, depending on the thickness of the roast.

4)    Remove the roast and vegetables to a platter. Season the meat with additional salt to taste. Pour the sauce through a strainer into a gravy boat and serve over the pot roast.






Enjoy!
