My little helper!

Anna has decided that she really likes to help me in the kitchen. For her birthday a friend gave her a Williams Sonoma cookbook. She has spent a lot of time pouring over the recipes and deciding what she wants to make. This weekend we had friends over for dinner. I made Pioneer Womens Pot Roast. This was such an amazing recipe. I have made a few pot roasts in the last 12 years and this one topped all of them. I think it might be caramelizing the veggies and cooking at such a low temp for such a long time. If you haven't it then I would highly recommend this recipe! I served it with PW's spinach salad, roasted green beans, cheesey bread and salty caramel brownies with ice-cream and espresso.

I just can't believe how tall Anna is...when I first saw the picture, I thought, "What is she standing on?" Nope. She's going to be taller than you in no time, Susy! So crazy, how time flies. Love you guys!
