"Mimi" was my dad's stepmother; my sister and I grew up calling her "Mimi" and thought of her as our grandmother (my dad's mom died before we were born).
Anyway, she fixed great Sunday dinners; pot roast was her specialty! I remember her pot roast well. Mmm...
3-4 pound pot roast
1 package onion soup mix dissolved in 1 cup white wine.
a few garlic pods
1/2 c. extra dry gin
Prick roast in a few places and insert garlic pods. Pour onion soup mixture over roast. Pour gin over it. Roast at 300 degrees for 2 hours. Turn oven down to 200 degrees and continue to roast for 2-3 more hours.
