We Will Sit At The Table And Have Conversation..


I have a roast in the crock pot.... Not sure why... I don't particularly care for pot roast... or any kind of roast for that matter... I do have a husband and kids to feed.. The kids are not fans either... not sure if the hubs is - mostly because it's not something that I typically cook... Lately we have been dining on "what you can find in the kitchen before anyone else finds it"... This meal has been a common occurrence lately due to mom being too busy to cook - the kids are too busy to eat dinner at the same time - and the husband is out of town more often than he is home... But tonight everyone will be here by 6:30 PM and we will sit down at the table together with plates, napkins, utensils, and conversation....

So tonight it's pot roast - I was walking through the grocery store this morning in search of something to make for dinner.. something that I don't have to spend too much time making...
I saw the big chunk of meat and voila... dinner was found... The meat also came with a little popper thingy that I can put into it to make sure I cook it correctly... that's a good thing...


Rump roast
2 large carrots
2 onions cut in half
3 red potatoes
1 parsnip (can't stand them - but the husband seems to like - yuck)
1 packet of savory pot roast mix....

crock pot it for 8 hours....

My eldest made homemade bread from scratch yesterday - if there is any left we can use it to sop up the gravy/juice....
