Roast was delicious and very simple. I used Labatts beer.
I served leftover roast with gravy and biscuits the following day.

ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS
tHIS recipe is just for me, to keep on hand if I need an appetizer. It is good!!

Crackers for dipping, or pita breads.

Broil red peppers: cut in half. Lay skin side up on a cookie sheets, coated with oil spray, Broil close to the top of the boiler til skins are black about ten min.
PUT peppers and all other ingreds in a food processer until blended.
SERVE!!

Kitty update

Elton is gone to a new home. Katrina also went to a forever home, after spending nine months here with us!! I am happy with the pairing of Katrina and her owner, they are a made for eachother!! Makes it easier to say goodbye!
Now all i have are Kiki and Shy Guy. Kiki will be here two more weeks before she returns home. Shy Guy needs a home. I don't know if I have any pictures of him, but I think he needs a name change. Shy Guy isn't very marketable. He is not very shy anymore.
We are getting a litter right after Easter!!
