One Down . . . 364 to Go

So, there it is in all its delicious glory–my first frugal meal of the year.

The recipe, “To Die For Crock Pot Roast,” was exactly as advertised. Found on Recipezaar.com, this dish was hands down one of the easiest (and tastiest) I’ve ever prepared. The only modifications that I made were to “rub” the mix into the roast and add cut red potatoes and carrots around the perimeter of the roast before cooking, making it a one-pot meal. After removing the roast from the crock pot, I stirred the drippings and vegetables and served them over some steamed white rice.

My husband made yummy sounds all through dinner, and Jake even liked it too. What gets me most excited is that I’ll be using half of the meat this Friday to make Stacked Enchiladas. Anyone interested in coming over for dinner?

  1. That looks so yummy! I’ll have to try out a few of these recieps and let you know how they work out for me.

  2. Do you live near me, and do you deliver? I’ll be staying tuned for more tales of yummy food in 2008.
