I couldn't make it because I was at a training class at Panthers Stadium, I'll be working there this season. Sounds like it's going to be a fun place to be.

ENJOY the day everyone!!!
Bx Rosie...Having never been to the stadium ...are there any venues there to have a CD re-union party sometime in the future? Just curious.
Thanks

Details man! Details!!!!!
Easiest meat and potatoes meal ever!

I buy a London Broil at Harris Teeter, approx 2 lbs.
4-5 red potatoes
4-5 lg carrots
3 cans Campbells French Onion soup

- Set large crock pot on 8 hrs and put the meat on the bottom.
- Add three cans on French Onion soup and 1-2 cans of hot water
- Cut up potatoes and carrots as desired and set aside (I put in fridge)

- At the 6 hr mark add vegetables.
- At 8 hours everything is done and is delicious.

Hint: The price of the meat is the most costly and I have seen this range anywhere from $7-14 depending on specials and 'sell by' date.

This meal for 3-4 requires very little work and can be done in $20 or so.
Clean up is a snap, if you are like me and do not like to end up with a tons of pots and pans to wash.

Today I'll also heat some HT frozen dinner rolls and serve with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I just bought a london broil today, too.

All I need is everything else you said and that ain't much. I'm trying this tomorrow night.

Man, it is SO easy - you really can't go wrong.

Obviously you can modify the vegetables to whatever you like.
I posted the way my mother always made it, but if I am feeling particularly industrious I will make mashed potatoes and use the French Onion+water concoction from the crock pot for gravy. That is really good as well.
Just more prep and clean-up.

Either way I guarantee you success on this dish.

Trivia: Probably one of the earliest forms of cooking known. Slow cooking. In a pot hanging in the fireplace all day or in somecases during the nite (all nite).
One thing that can be said for the process is, you'll never go to the hospital for undercooked food!
