Until today. I woke up on a mission to roast a beef. I googled 'roast beef paleo crockpot' and the very first hit was for a smokey roast. The recipe was super easy. And I had all the ingredients except one. Win, win, except for one small issue....... The missing ingredient was coffee grounds. Now, I realize, the city of Seattle is probably drowning in coffee grounds on sunday morning, but all those coffee grounds were doing me no good. Perhaps I should hit up the local Starbucks ask for their garbage? Finally, I settled on searching out a coffee drinking friend. After a couple texts I found someone who had JUST made coffee. He was on his way out, but agreed to leave the grounds on the porch.
A half hour or so later I was mixing my friend's ex garbage with chocolate, cumin, chipotle spice, and garlic powder and rubbing it on my happy, grass fed, chuck roast! Six hours later, my smoky coffee infused roast was melting in my mouth. Holy goodness. My life needs to include more roast beef!
In other news. It seems you can buy hooch at the grocery store now. This may be of of no relevance or surprise to those who don't live in Seattle, but it's very strange for us Seattelites who have always had to go to a liquor store when we want to expand our drinking from beer and wine.
