Slowly roasted beef recipe

Well we have four days off for Easter and I’m still feeling crook. I thought I’d feel better if I spent some time cooking. Tonight I made slowly roasted beef with vegetables.

I should start at the beginning. I woke up feeling worse than the previous few days mainly because I coughed all night and just felt stupidly tired. Given it’s the beginning of a four day long weekend I thought I should make an effort for breakfast so I cooked bacon and eggs with toast.

After breakfast I went back to bed and dozed for a bit. I stayed there until about midday and figured I should get out, shower shave and think about what to do for the day. 

I had a blade roast in the refrigerator and thought a slowly roasted beef recipe was in order.

I also had some beef bones and thought the fatty juicy goodness from them would make a good cooking soup for the blade roast. So I started by cooking them and ate the fatty meat for lunch while reserving the juices for the roast.

Given the protein and fat load I needed something sweet for afternoon tea so I ended up having a teaspoon of Nutella and a teaspoon of crunchy peanut paste.
