Friday’s Fotos: Hula, Proof, 3D, and Small Veggies

I usually put up Friday’s Fotos every week, but I didn’t last week for some reason…so these are from the past two weeks.

Maggie can Hula too!

Proof that there ARE "twin moments"

The following veggies came from our garden. I’m not sure why they are SO SMALL after having “cooked” for the right amount of time. Ah well – perhaps next year. 🙂

Tiny Carrots

Makes My Monday: Finding an Awesome Crock Pot Recipe

cimg0164While stumbling through the internet the other day, I came across a recipe for “To Die For Pot Roast Sandwiches” Made in the crock pot. Now, you all know that I love, love, love my crock pot. And pot roast? Ya – bring it on.

So I tried this one … just like the recipe says and OMG, no joke – it’s totally to die for.

This time around, I added a few things. Here’s my recipe.

Crock Pot Pot Roast

  • 1 beef roast – any kind (3-5 pounds)
  • A handful of baby red potatoes, quartered
  • A handful (or two) of baby carrots
  • 1/2 a bag of frozen white pearl onions
  • 1 package dried brown gravy mix
  • 1 package dried Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 package dried ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cup water
  1. Place beef roast in slow cooker.
  2. Place the veggies around the sides of the beef.
  3. Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast.
  4. Pour the water around the roast.
  5. Cook on low for seven to nine hours.

As with most pot roasts, this one was even better on day two…(not that there was much left of it…)

Oh, and that plastic you see? Crock Pot liners. Easy clean up and helps make the lid fit better (no more crock pot spitting!) Just another thing to Make my Monday 🙂
