Is there anything better then comming home at the end of a long day, opening the door and smelling a home cooked meal.
I do not have anyone who cooks for me,so I acomplish this sensation by making use of the crock pot.
That is exactly what happend yesterday, it reminded me of how much I love my crock pot.
I already shared yesterday, I was fairley sleep deprived from the storm add to that a days farm chores, a job off the farm and additional storm clean up. Had I had to cook dinner last night we would have been in trouble, but I had put it on in the morning via. the crock pot and dinner was waiting. Last fall and winter I used my crock pot and/or dutch oven at least once a week it is time once again to start putting that plan into action, time to dig out the crock pot recipies.
Last night we had chicken but I am alread looking forward to Beef for next weeks "crock pot night"
- 1 beef roast / eye round
- onions – 1 or 2
- 1/3 cup chunky applesauce or you can peeland core 4-6 apples
- 1 can beef broth
- 1 packet Ranch dressing mix
You can thickened the broth with flour and water. Remove the roast and onions from the crockpot. Turn the heat to high. In a container with a tight-fitting lid, put 3-4 Tbs. of flour and enough water to make the consistency of wall-paper paste. Shake the daylights out of it and gradually whisk it into the broth in the crockpot.
