What's on the menu for tonight?

I put a beef roast in the crock pot, added a little water and sprinkled a dry onion soup mix over it this morning before I left work.

Hope your pot roast comes out better than mine did Daisy.

Glad you remembered, that sucks when you forget and ruin a perfectly good chicken or roast. I always use an onion soup mix and a brown gravy. Typically I do beer but water works too. That sounds yummy!!

We're having something with boneless chicken breast. I'm thinking maybe oven tenders for the kids and I'll make a stir fry for me.

I do my roasts that way - onion soup mix and some water. My trick is putting it in the crock pot frozen. My used to be tough and dry too...it just cooked too long during the day. I put it in frozen, to give it the extra cooking time, and they're perfect now!

Oh, this roast will be fabulous and fall apart tender.... they always are when I cook them in a crockpot at low all day long. But, the "day long" part is the key.... for me anyway.

It was in a crock pot and simmered plenty long enough.

The last roast I cooked in the crock turned out dry as a bone. Sometimes it's good sometimes it's not. I HATE wasting a whole roast. I hope yours is perfect Daisy!
