With Dark Red Wine and Fresh Chuck Meat!
Check your refrigerator, wine cellar and pantry for the following ingredients:
- One bone-in arm chuck roast, a pricier cut of beef, or short ribs
- 2 T. of your favorite seasoning blend . . . thyme, sage, basil, tarragon, paprika, etc.
- 4 T. olive or safflower oil
- 3 c. mixed celery, carrots, leeks, shallots etc.
- Whole onions (however many you wish to eat)
- Potatoes (Yukon, Red, and Idaho Russet are our favorites)
- 5 garlic cloves, sliced thin
- Allspice if you’d like a taste of Greek food
- 1 c. canned tomato puree
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 t. peppercorns
- 1-1/2 c. beef stock
- ½ c. Port Wine
- 1 c. Merlot (you may use Cab, Syrah, or Pinot if you opened it within 3 days)
Set aside a large oven-tempered roasting pan, be it glass or metal. No china or plastics, please. It is best to choose a pan with a top cover particularly if there is not enough aluminum foil available in the kitchen..
Get a skillet over high heat and add several drops of oil. Brown the meat on both sides. This is important to contain the beef’s natural juices. Don’t use a top because you need to closely watch the searing process to avoid deep blackening. Add salt unless the seniors coming to dinner are on a low sodium diet. Remove meat from the frying pan when this beef searing operation is finished. Sauté the vegetables until glassy-looking, remove and reserve for later. Don’t overcook. Add the garlic, herbs, and spices to the pan, cooking until nicely colored. Add the wines and tomato. Reduce liquids by half at a boil. Add the beef stock. You might bring it almost to a boil so the bottom of the pan does not scorch or just throw it in the oven after taking the next step.
Add vegetables to pot. Add the meat back to the pan. The top of the roast should “crown” out of the braising liquid. Place a 5-inch square of foil or the pan’s cover over the exposed meat. Place the pan in a 325-degree oven and cook for 2 hours on a slow bake.
You may double this baking time if you wish; keep forking the roast once and awhile until it is at your desired level of tenderness. This step is optional: Remove meat and vegetables from pan. Place the baking pan on the stovetop, bring liquids to a simmer, and reduce by a third to thicken. Season and serve the gravy along side with the meat and vegetables. It is all gravy!

Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)
Coast-to-Coast Risk Management
Glenwood Springs, CO 81602-0777
Woodside, CA 94062-2448
Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.
Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.
Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?
In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.
My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!
St. Vincent DePaul Society is not affiliated with the CCNA.

Office of Pope Francis I
Dear Your Holiness Pope Francis I:
Would you please come visit the United States among my Catholic and unchurched friends in Glenwood Springs, Colorado (St. Stephen) and East Palo Alto, California (St. Francis of Assisi)? Your grace, I cannot visit you would you please come here to pray with us?
Attached is a letter I sent to your office last summer. At the time, I realized I could not make an European pilgrimage due to my personal health.
Our parish in East Palo Alto will again be celebrating from Friday the 2nd until dark on Sunday, October 4, 2015, the annual feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. 2013 was my first year in Father Ed’s, Msgr. John, and Pastor Father Larry Goode’s parish and I really had fun.
You would find St. Francis full of life – our parishioners are largely Hispanic, with many Pacific Island (Tongan), Black, White, and Asian-Americans – in a very poor and relatively crime-ridden neighborhood ironically immediately adjacent to Silicon Valley USA and wealthy corporations like Facebook.
I realize how important your trip to Cuba is, but I urge your group to canonize Father Junipero Serra in Northern California and visit our parishes.
My newest parish is St. Stephen’s – located beautifully about 3 hours west of Denver and some 100 miles west of the North American Continental Divide along the Colorado River and the Amtrak Railroad passenger train line – less than a mile south of the famous hot springs. Pastor Father Bert and Father Joseph have been terrific! This town of 9,000 has only fewer than 800 Catholics.
Thank you for your consideration. I am feeling better already just by knowing you are there for all Catholics and for all of humanity. I shall keep reminding others to continue to pray for you and to take our concerns first in prayer to The Lord.

Given my latest moonlighting schedule, I am enjoying a stop at I-HOP on my way to the bunkhouse between 3 and 4 a.m. PDT.
This Thursday, I met a delightful quartet of young adults (they just happened to be black: The lone male reminded me of Jimmy Walker of “Good Times” and one of the women also had family back home in Indiana). Our two tables were the only ones occupied and Patty gave us all terrific service.
Later today I have appointments with two psychiatrists. Imagine at least one of them will recommend therapy or some pill to rid myself of my newly acquired pancake addiction before dawn.
Is there PA meetings scheduled somewhere?
This cookbook has been in the works for decades. As a “latchkey kid” long before the term was popularized, I was preparing meals for myself from age ten or so. I would like to be able to claim that I learned the kitchen basics at my mother’s elbow, but the truth is I found my way reading cookbooks and through trial-and-error.
When I inherited my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes on index cards, I took it upon myself to reconstruct my family’s kitchen legacy which had previously only been preserved in the hearts and memories of our family and friends.
Thus, a fair amount of contemporary thought and planning has gone into this cookbook, and it has been shaped by my own tastes and interests. For example, it has been my goal to put together a practical family cookbook using wine as an important ingredient in a wide variety of menus. I live in the wine country of northern California, where wine is an important influence in the whole culture. I have therefore taken our old family meals and embellished them accordingly.
I have also tended to focus on “comfort foods” which, though some people accuse this use of food as being inherently unhealthy, can be made increasingly beneficial if only the cook will think about how home-grown produce and local ingredients can be integrated and experiment with them. I therefore have included recipes which use those foods and ingredients that are available, not only to us in California, but in the Midwestern, Southern and the Atlantic states.
We are entering an era in which rising transportation costs and food safety concerns will likely change our ways with food. These recipes limit the mandatory use of gourmet, exotic, and hard-to-find ingredients. I have, in fact, organized the book according to the seasons of the year when local ingredients are more likely to be “in season.”
I can recall during college that my dear future wife tried baking homemade wheat bread. Too bad she got confused between baking powder and baking soda; we ended up using the loaves as doorstops. Remember to have a sense of humor in the kitchen – no matter what may happen.
