But supper was where the magic happened. I have been in role as "wifey" for about 2 years now, and can you believe that today was the first time I have used my crock pot? I know, I know... it really is sad. But I have learned the error of my ways, and I have seen the light!
Pot Roast -- made how my mama has always made it! (This is the first time I have made it on my own in my house, though!)
- 10 small red potatoes (cut in halves)
- Large yellow onion
- Baby Carrots (about 10-12?)
- Celery (2 stalks in chunks)
- 1.5-2 lb Beef roast seasoned with salt and pepper
- 1/2-3/4 cup of water
It was fall apart tender! So good! My hubby is picky, and he loved it! And the veggies (minus the celery). Lil'bug ate some carrots and potatoes, but she wouldn't even try the roast. I gave her some pears and part of my bread, too. She will NOT eat meat, so I try and make sure she eats plenty of veggies to get her iron. Border line anemic, and making it hard on mommy to get that iron in her!
Then came the cinnamon apples! I looked online for a good recipe, but they all seemed to call for whole apples... and I didn't want that. So, I wing,wang,wung it!
- 2 sweet apples (we used Gala, but Fuji or whatever would work)
- 1 tart apple (Granny Smith, ya'll!)
- 2 1/2 Tbs Sugar
- 1/2 Tbs Cinnamon
- Couple dashes of pumpkin pie spice
- 2 Tbs water
- 1 Tbs butter
I am so sorry I didn't get any pictures of the deliciousness! It all smelled and looked so good, I didn't even think of it!
P.S. If you had noticed, we are a day behind in our Menu Planner. On Sunday, my hubbs was helping my folks do more demolition on their house, so they ended up taking us out for supper! They are too sweet! Sorry for the confusion!
