Beef Roast on a Spit and the Weekly Menu #LitHappens

Cooking this New York Strip Roast on the rotisserie creates an amazing crust on the outside.  Place a pan of root vegetables underneath the roast as it cooks and all those delicious drippings flavor your vegetables and gives you an amazing dinner without much hands on work.

Beef and Potatoes plate

I was inspired to make this Beef Roast on a Spit after reading the Kitchen House, our Lit Happens selection for August.

Mock Turtle Soup #CooktheBooks

Mock turtle soup is made not from turtle but from beef.  It was created in the 18th century in England as an imitation of Green Turtle soup.  It is the strangest soup I have ever made, containing cookies and hard boiled eggs, and it was surprisingly tasty.

Mock Turtle Soup

It's time for our August/September edition of Cook the Books.......
