      I made this for a family dinner. I added some red wine to the juices to make a really yummy gravy!

      I've made this lovely dish twice already --- yummy both times! The first was an adventure: I'm not used to working with oven roasting bags and the bags only expand so far, if you get my drift, ;). The next time I made this was uneventful and enthusiastically received by DH and all! It's my new secret weapon to the "What am I going to fix for dinner tonight?" blues.
