Ok - I went online and found a recipe for a slow cooker pot roast that seems really easy and it has the carrots and the potatoes and everything in it. My question is when you ladies make your slow cooker pot roasts will I need to make an additional veggie or will just the potatoes and carrots cooked with the roast be enough? Is it really an all in one dish? Hmmm - maybe some bread? I dont know. I am going to try it but I feel like DH will think I am making stew with one big piece of meat instead of cubed meat. Hmmmm..... I guess if he is hungry he will eat it! LOL!

Amy, I do it all in one no extra veggies but yes a good loaf of crusty bread goes well.

Amy - I never add liquid to my roasts so it doesn't look like stew....but that's just me. Anyway, for the veggies I just use what I have in the drawer. I've even added green beans! LOL Mushrooms are a nice addition if you like them. Honestly though, potatoes and carrots could really be enough.

Diana- we've had ribeyes on sale like crazy here. I really don't know what's up with that! I cleaned out my garage freezer and I have 8 meals worth of ribeyes! They are our favorite steak! I marinade mine in soy & green onion the sprinkle with kosher salt before grilling....how do you season yours?

Thats a good idea Michelle. I can use the veggies I have left over from the stir fry tonight! Here is the recipe I found. I dont know how it will end up tasting but since I have never made a roast before (we are mostly chicken people with some hamburger thrown in here and there) I was willing to give it a shot. I think the mushrooms will be really good.

1 sm roast
2 potatoes peeled and quartered
3 carrots peeled and cut into 3rds
1/2 c water
8oz can tomato sauce
1tsp oregano
1tsp basil

Put vegitables in bottom of crockpot. Salt and pepper meat and put in crockpot. Add water and tomato sauce. Sprinkle oregano and basil over meat. Cover and cook 10-12 hours on low.

Does it sound like it will be good? Should I do anything else to it?

Michelle, I usually do a little bit of worstechire and then garlic pepper & kosher salt. We love ribeyes too and Sam's had them on sale.
I may do potatoes instead of rice. We've had rice the last 2 nights, I just realized.

Amy, You can put in really anything you want. I personally don't use tomatoes or tomato sauce, just b/c it's not my personal fave. I've used onion soup mix with a little bit of beef broth or red wine. I always use garlic, salt & pepper too..but I use garlic, salt & pepper on EVERYTHING.
I do put in potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, onions

Just wondering. I always use a chuck roast....and cook it in the crock for 8+hours or in the oven atleast 3 hours. I've tried all the different cuts and we like that one the best.

Cook for 7-9 hpurs...Gotta say it smells YUMMY! Oh and my trusty bread machine is making dough for home made rolls for me!

Ok then chuck roast it is!

I may try that one next with the ranch and itallian dressing. It sounds really good. I just have to worry about the sodium. I am going to have to check out the onion soup mix and see how bad that is. I will let you guys know how it turns out.

Thanks for all of your help mommies! I really appreciate it.

Hmm last night we were going to have fried Chicken Breast for the DH and kids and I was going to make myself fried wing dings instead and maybe some rice a roni and mashed potatoes but While at the store getting milk and ice cream decided to by some french Bread and do Amy's french bread pizzas since I already keep most pizza stuff on hand thats all I lacked for it is the loaf of french bread. And I have to tell you it was yummy yummy(Thanks Amy for posting it!!!) Dh and DS seemed to really enjoy it also. So I think that is how I am going to make my Pizza from now on so much quicker and easier than making the crust etc.

Tomorrow we will have the Chicken and wing dings since they are already just completely thawed out.

Although I do have a recipe to post on here of Cheesebread(like to go with Pizza or I have even had it with Lasagna before)

What you will need is

1 Tube of Pillsbury Pizza Crust
4-5tbsp Classico signature recipe Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce(this can be found in the pasta sauce aisle at the store)
8 oz Shredded Colby Cheese
8 oz shredded Muenster cheese
1/4-1/2cup grated parmesan cheese(the kind that comes in the Green sprinkle canister at the stores)

Preheat oven to 425 F Roll out pizza crust on a cookie sheet. Spread alfredo sauce over top of crust. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese over sauce. Then top off with shredded cheeses on top bake for about 10-12 minutes or until edges brown. I even turn on my broiler to brown up and make the cheese all melty.

This is super yummy...

Tonight we are having the sloppy Joes since yesterday, at the last minute, I decided to make garlic soy beef w/brocolli, white rice, and egg rolls. I don't know what happened but my meat turned out tough...and I sliced against the grain so I can only imagine if I had sliced the other direction....probably would have broken our teeth. Anyway, Brenden had beef w/veggis (he seems to really like that one), peas and a little applesauce. Tonight he will have sweet potatoes & pears.

You will never guess what I am cooking for dinner....

Crock Pot Pot Roast!

I know total shock -

Cook on Low all day long and hope for the best!

Oh and I bought some french bread rolls to go with.

February 18th

Tonight we are having Grilled Chicken Fettucini Alfredo, pan fried broccoli, and cheesy flat bread.

For the Fettucini Alfredo I bought refrigerated noodles, I will make the sauce and grill the chicken with some Mrs. Dash.

Alfredo Sauce:
saute 2T garlic in 1 stick butter (no subs) in a saucepan for about 3 minutes. Whisk an egg yolk with 1/4 cup heavy cream and set aside. Turn the burner to medium and add 1 cup heavy cream to garlic/butter very slowly whisking the entire time. Once you get all of the cream in add the cream/yolk mixture and continue whisking. Once everything is well blended add about 1 to 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese and 2t dried parsley. Continue stirring so it doesn't burn but you can turn the heat to low and let it cook so it gets to your desired thickness.

Cheesy Flatbread
Bread:
1 1/4 cups warm water
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 t sugar
1 1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t active dry yeast

Topping:
2T melted butter
1/2t garlic salt
1/2 c shredded mozzarella
1/4 c grated parmesan
Layer bread ingredients into bread machine, select dough cycle.
Prepare baking stone or sheet - spray with non-stick spray and cornmeal
When dough is finished remove from pan and stretch into a rectangle, lay on prepared pan. Brush dough with butter, sprinkle with garlic salt and top with cheeses. Set in a draft free area to rise for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile place oven rack on lowest rack position and heat oven to 450. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown.

Amy - How did your roast turn out?

Elise - you stroganoff recipe sounds easy and good. I'm gonna try it next week!

Michelle - It was Good! DH LOVED it. I even made gravy out of the juice. Just add corn starch and stir.
Oh and your dinner tonight sounds AWESOME - Make sure to make enough for company I might just drop by... You are only like 4 hours away.

Funny I forgot to make the bread and realized it after we had started eating. So we finished our meals and then made the bread. DH said "Wow bread would have been reall good" looking at me with puppy dog eyes. So rolls for dessert!

We are having it again tonight for dinner. I will need to make more veggies. My crock pot is small and I could barely get the roast and the little veggies we made with it in there.

Elise, thanks for the recipe, sounds good.

Michelle, the alfredo sounds good to. we make it on a fairly regular basis but we don't have a recipe. actually most things we make we don't have a recipe, we just fly by the seat of our pants.

Amy, glad your roast turned out so good. roast is a good leftover. dh will eat anything leftover but i'm particular, roast, pizza, meatloaf, pasta, that's about my limit.

AFM:we don't have anything planned yet for dinner. dh will be home before me but i need to go to the store on the way home so i may pick up something. i don't even have a taste for anything.
