Today is also Slow Cooking Thursday. It is hosted by Sandra@ http://familycorner.blogspot.com/. If you would like to participate in Slow Cooking Thursday, please go visit Sandra and sign her Mr. Linky and let her know you have posted your Slow Cooking Thursday Recipe on your blog. Now remember, it has to be something that is cooked in a Slow Cooker. Let's see what I'm going to share today. Since I don't use my Slow Cooker alot, it's hard for me to think of something. But give me just a minute and I'm sure I will come up with something to cook in a Slow Cooker. I'm thinking here. LOL. Whew, I had to go back to my older post's and see what I had already posted for Slow Cooking Thursday. LOL. Now, that's getting bad. Okay, I think I have come up with something to cook in the Slow Cooker.
Karen's Beef Roast with Vegetables
1- good size Beef Roast
1- Red Onion sliced in halves
2- packages of Baby Carrots
12- Red Potatoes
Rinse the Beef Roast off with some water and let drain for a few minutes. Put it in the Slow Cooker. Add your slices of Red Onion. Be sure to spread them out all in the Slow Cooker. Put your 2 packages of Baby Carrots in the post now. Finally, cut up your Red Potatoes and cut them up in medium-size pieces and put them in the Slow Cooker. I usually add some Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Salt, and Pepper. Now since I don't measure any of these things, I just put enough in there that looks good for me. Put the lid on and turn the heat on to Medium-High and let cook all night. Let it cook on this temperature all night and you can check it the next morning and if you have to, you can turn it down some. I usually just leave mine on Medium-High till it's time to eat it. Oh my, DUH me, LOL. I forgot to tell you to add the Slow Cooker with about 3/4 with Water before you turn it on. When it's ready to serve, it will be so tender and it just falls apart. You can serve this with a pan of Homemade Buttermilk Cornbread and some slices of Onion of your color choice and walla, you have a wonderful and healthy meal. You have your meat, vegetables, and bread all in one meal. This is the only way my Family will eat a Roast. I guess because it being so tender.
I am feeling some better this morning. "THANK YOU" all very much for the prayers and comments about me being sick. I do appreciate them very much. I went back to sleep for a while yesterday morning and woke up around 2:30p.m. and was feeling better. I guess I was just needing some more sleep since I didn't sleep any the other night. I guess it does catch up with you after a while. Anyway, after the girls got in from School, I had to run out to Jonesboro on some business. On our way home, I stopped in Lake City, AR, at Sonic and got us some supper. The girls ate theirs on the way home. I just ate my fries on the way home. I can't eat a Cheeseburger and drive at the same time. So, when we got home, I ate my Cheeseburger. The girls went to Church and after Church I had to take our youngest daughter out to another Church. The friend she had stayed all night with last Friday night, was having her Birthday Party at her Church's Family Life Center after their Church was over with.
I talked to my DH around 5:25a.m. and he was about 30 miles from Topeka, KS. He said it was snowing a little on him but not too bad. He said he was fixing to switch out in a little bit and go to bed. Please pray yall that they will be able to make it home today and they won't have too many problems with the roads up in Missouri.
I'm a little late in posting this morning because I was having trouble getting on the internet. I had to call the Cable Support Desk and they had to reset my Modem. Well, guess I'll go for now and go see who has coffee or maybe even something sweet to eat. LOL. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.
LOVE & HUGS,
