Missy, here. Two days until d-day. Book deadline day. So I'm still in my mad dash to the finish of the re-writes I'm doing post-critique.
Sooo, today, you're getting a quickie post because that's the kind of meal my family will get tonight!
I bought a nice chuck roast. I recently heard someone (maybe a chef on the Food Network) say that's the best cut for crockpot...or maybe it was for grilling. Anway, I agree with both. It has so much flavor and is usually a good price.
I sometimes add an onion while cooking. If so, I slice in chunks and toss in the slow cooker. Then add the roast. Then I sprinkle on a packet of seasoning. Usually, I use Au Jus seasoning. But I'm out. I grabbed the mushroom gravy packet.
Turn on the slow cooker on high a couple of hours to get hot. Then set on low until dinnertime! Quick and tasty.
I also discovered a new side dish we're going to try this evening. Stouffer's Corn Souffle. And in honor of the fact it's a "side" dish, I put in a sideways photo. LOL No time for photo editing while book editing!
Last but not least, here's my trusty helper chef. He knows when I'm serving beef!
