It’s definitely not the time to be roasting up a great slab of beef. But that doesn’t mean the big cross rib roast that has been living in my freezer these past six months is useless. Far from it. With the frozen peas running low, and the frozen raspberries not standing up too well to prolonged use as an ice pack, the cross rib roast has stepped into the breach–and is doing a great job on my wonky knee. Only frozen spinach has come close to doing as well, and it doesn’t seem to be something one sees much of in grocery stores any more.
