Watched that sumbitch like a hawk, I did.
Ate up pretty good, too: the center roast hit just the right spot of rare for my father-in-law and the remains promise many, many wonderful things later. Also, I may or may not have had a couple of glasses of wine with dinner (standing rib roast, roast potatoes/sweet potatoes, parboiled string beans in sesame oil*) and am now nursing a rum-and-coke while my wife loads the dishwasher. All in all, a good dinner.
*Oh! And my wife’s mushroom gravy from last night.
