After visiting his sister in Louisiana, my husband got the recipe on how to cook a beef roast. I had no clue. Then began the search for the holy grail, a roast. The ones in Mt View were small and old. So off to Zimmerman's in S'ville, they do not have them as people prefer steak cuts to roast. Then talked to a friend who suggested I buy half a cow and an extra freezer. But then she recommended Kollers.Then off to Kollers where the butcher put this Eye of Round together for me. Misson accomplished. My husband made this awsome roast beef. He put in cloves of garlic. After a long while at a low temp it was done. It turned out great and we have enough for days.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
