With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Hot roast beef sandwiches with au Jus for dipping

Hot roast beef sandwiches with au Jus for dipping

It's been a snowy winter. This weekends snowfall (about 28-inches) brought the Philadelphia area accumulation up to 54-inches so far (the record is 65-inches) and we are expecting another "major" storm on Wednesday. We've all been fighting colds and Abbey and John are currently watching the Super Bowl. Here is what the three of us enjoyed for dinner:
Hot roast beef sandwiches with au Jus for dipping.

It was an impulsive purchase many years ago but this "Set it and Forget it" rotisserie does a beautiful job roasting an eye roast.

The hardest part is slicing the roast paper thin since my MIL's old slicer gave up its ghost.

A delicious Crab Spread with Bacon posted on a new-to-me blog called Cuisine Kathleen. I was just beginning to think I would never buy imitation crab meat again because I am always disappointed with the results. It tasted very good in this spread!
Here is Kathleens recipe from her site:
Crab Spread with Bacon

1/2 lb crab meat..I use imitation crab, it is a milder taste..
1/2 lb cream cheese, don't use the less fat, it separates when baked..
1 small onion, minced
1 T horseradish
3 T milk or cream
Juice of one lemon

Mix all together, and spread in a baking dish sprayed with Pam.

Top with crumbled bacon, or almond slivers, or go wild and do half and half..:)

Bake at 350 15 min or till it bubbles and is lightly browned..
Let sit a few minutes, serve with crackers for spreading.

Pineapple Coleslaw
from Epicurean.com
3 Cups Shredded Cabbage
1/2 Cup Shredded Carrots
3/4 cup Drained Crushed Pineapple (1 8oz Can)
2 Tbsp. Vinegar
2 tsp Sugar
2/3 Cup Mayonnaise
Black or White Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients. Taste and adjust the seasonings as desired. Cover and chill through.

We finished up with a Chocolate Cream Pie. I haven't posted the recipe because it didn't thicken as I thought it should. I put in the freezer and served it as a frozen dessert. The taste sent me right back into my childhood... remember Fudgesicles? The chocolate had the same flavor and texture as a Fudgesicle! Though really yummy, I still wanted a Chocolate Cream Pie :)

Good Evening Lorraine, I cannot believe all the snow you have had. Your home looks so beautiful against the bright blue sky. Your roast and all the trimmings look delicious. So sorry to hear you are all fighting a cold. I hope the week ahead will be full of blessings for all of you.

I am now incredibly hungry!!!

I told hubby how much snow you all received and for the first time he was glad he wasn't at Ft. Dix! Hope you are shoveled out by now!

It does look pretty!

What a scruptious feast - I can almost smell that roast cooking from here!

Jane said...

Hi Loraine!
Your feast looks fabulous! I know your family loved every morsel of that delicious roast. Not to mention the other foods. I have that crab recipe...one of our favorites. But I have never tried it with bacon. Sounds fab!

I did not know you lived in the Philly area. We lived in West Chester for 5 years...a long time ago. My two eldest were born there. When we were planning our move, the materials sent out by the Chamber of Commerce said the annual average amount of snow was 16" (FOR THE YEAR) and that we would not need air conditioners. They lied! For my eldest son's 4th birthday, we had 28" on Valentine's Day...drifts of 50+ inches. We were so happy to move back to FL...

Yummy dinner! I did a beef dip also but I did it a bit differently. Your roast was cooked perfectly! In Northern Virginia we have been dumped on this year too and looking for more tomorrow. I'm longing for spring... Joan @Americana By Candlelight

I'm always on the lookout for a good imitation crab recipe. The price is just so good on that stuff. This one looks like it would be a keeper. Thanks. jan

I'm surprised by all the snow you are getting as we are experiencing far less than normal here.

Looks like you had a delicious dinner to help you forget about the ugly weather. :)

Janice said...

Oh I hope you all stay safe and warm with all that snow outside! Your dinner looks so delicious and the frozen pie sounds great.

Ann said...

I heard that your area was getting some pretty heavy snowfall. Hope the next round isn't as bad.
That's some spread you had there. Looks like a feast fit for a king. I got hungry just looking at the pictures.

That food looks SO GOOD!!! You do an awesome job on this blog--photos and everything. I've enjoyed your snow pics--even though I don't enjoy the snow! I'd like to try that crab dip and the coleslaw looks e-z. Thanks!
