Moving on.....yesterday morning hubby and I got up early and left 2 of the 3 dependents sleeping the morning away and headed outside to finish off the front flower beds. You can see the finished product:
I'll have updates later this week as I've ripped out all the pansies and planted new blooming flowers for the summer. Actually, I have the right hand side finished....much work to do today on the left.
Mere asked on Friday if we could have roast beef for lunch on Sunday before she went home. Since we all love roast beef.....dinner is planned!
Here we go folks!! It's good and it's easy!!!
You are going to need some potatoes, carrots and celery and then you need to cube them up and put in the bottom of a crock pot like so:
add the celery
Now we need the star of the show.....the roast beef. This one is sirloin tip but you get whatever cut you prefer.
Just plop that baby right on top of the veggies. Now mine was thawed as we just purchased it but if yours is frozen..it's ok, just drop that frozen puppy right in there the same way. It's all good in the crock pot world.
Time to add some flavor...
1 pkg of the Lipton onion soup mix, 1 can of Golden Mushroom soup and 1/2 can of water.
Drop all that over the top of that pretty little piece of meat
Slap the lid on the crockpot, flip the switch to on and cook that baby on Low ALL DAY LONG. At least 8 hours. I put everything in my crockpot before bed Saturday night then Sunday morning I woke up and dropped it all into the base at 7:15 in the morning and got it started cooking while we were slaving away in the yard. We had dinner around 4 and this is the blessed joy that emerges from the warm
We had some green beans, some creamed corn and bread. The gravy for this roast is also most excellent so I put that in the gravy boat and dinner was served. Next time you need a good hearty remind you of Sunday's at your grandmothers meal.......pull out the crock pot and have a roast, you'll be so glad you did!
Peace, Love and Yummies folks...I'm off to conquer Monday!
