Dinner menu

I made the wonderful, and reliable, barbecued chuck roast, grilled medium rare. (Recipe handed down from my mother.) Sister-in-law provided salad, roasted cauliflower, broccoli, and pasta for them that wanted it. And for dessert I made strawberry shortcake--the shortcakes were Richard Sax's "Buttermilk-Almond Biscuits" from his Classic Home Desserts, with piles of fresh strawberries and a moderate amount of freshly whipped cream (we're all watching our weight).

The biscuits are the cover picture on my copy of the cookbook--looks like there's a new dust jacket now and it's now one of 3 photos.
