I might of thrown a little internal fit at first lol, but I knew what he was saying was absolutely right, so I began to become more aware of what they could do and learn at their age.
There were some frustrations, because I'm continually developing patience and I definitely had to grow, but I was amazed to see the rewards. It's become one of my favorite things to do- have the girls working along side me in the kitchen and I will NEVER regret that decision.
My first surprise came one day when the girls were ages 5 and 6 and Seth and I had just finished up chores. Rise and Rhian wanted to surprise us and made us the most perfect iced coffees and the softest, most beautiful pizza dough, in preparation for dinner. I was shocked at what they had learned just by watching and helping...and YES! Through quite a few extra messes. I also started seeing some of their gifts and strengths shine through...Amazing how unique each one of us has been made.
It definitely would have been much easier just to do it myself and clean up myself, but the girls and I would have missed out on so much. I can honestly say that both girls surpassed what I can do in the kitchen, a long time ago.
Rise makes an amazing roast using beef OR pork roast and I'm so glad she's going to be sharing it with you today. She's also given you tips on how to take it from a roast to a pulled pork, or pulled beef recipe.
Charise's Roast and pulled pork, or pulled beef:
I take care of the sheep and help with growing barley fodder, setting up paddocks and help rotate cows through our pastures on the 7u Ranch. I also love essential oils and have an online store where I offer them. In the summer, my sister and I operate the food booth at the farmer's market...I hope to meet you there!
Have you ever looked at a Roast and had no idea what to do with it or you are fresh out of ideas and you just want to have a quick meal you can start at the beginning of the day.
I have a couple recipes for you. Roasts are actually very simple, easy to make and don't take up a bunch of time plus the extras can always be saved and used for the next meal.
