Meat, oh, how I've missed you! This past Sunday, I made a wonderful pot roast. I started off cooking it in the crockpot, but ended up taking it out of the pot and putting in a roasting pan in the oven. I can't get my roasts to not turn out dry in the crockpot. Maybe it's the altitude! Ha, just kidding, I'm sure I can only use that excuse for baking!
So, for this one, I don't have an exact measurement recipe. But it's super easy and the taste of the gravy is fabulous! I took about a 5 pound roast and seasoned it with Lawry's season salt, Worchestire sauce (several shakes of the bottle), and a couple of shakes of liquid smoke. Then for the gravy, I used a can of cream of mushroom soup and a package of dry onion soup mix. I can't tell you how long to cook it since I didn't bake it in the oven the whole time. But obviously, cook it until it's done but not too done. I used a roasting pan and covered it with with foil and baked it at 350 degrees. Be careful when removing the foil because I burned my finger with the steam (at least it wasn't hot coffee!) Oh, I also added some cut up potatoes and carrots the last hour and a half. It was great! The gravy was seriously delicious if I do say so myself :)
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
