SKBS - I would have loved to have been there! That is my kind of meal - simple, and with the ones you love the most in the world! Love it! You are such a good Mama! (I will submit that in writing for your future use when diva gets to be a teenager!)

I have made Pot Roasts in the Oven... I usually use the oven bags, because I love the flavoring that comes with them. But... sometimes they don't keep the Juice. I'd like to try more of a homemade roast without the bag, but I have tried a few times and while the juice stays, it sometimes has a "watery" taste. Anyone have any EASY, yet YUMMY recipe for an oven roast they can share?...here or DM me. Thanks.

Kels - Thanks for this recipe! I notice you say Greek seasoning. I use Cavender's Greek seasoning on most everything!

Coastal - Be safe!
I've never heard of this.. must be a southern thing?

OK, I use the crock pot some for roasts - just put it on low, throw in the roast and some lipton onion soup mix, etc.... and let cook for about 8 hours. Then throw in some drained canned potatoes and carrots - just to heat. If you want - in a large measuring cup, put in about 1/4 -1/3 cup flour. Add a tiny bit of water and stir - add water a little at a time - this prevents lumping - until about 2 cups. Make sure your roast and all are NOT boiling when you pour this in while whisking. (It will lump if boiling) Let cook until the thickness is to your taste.

Another way is to simmer in a deep cast iron or cast dutch oven on top of the stove. Brown all sides of the roast - season with lipton onion soup mix, garlic powder, onion flakes, whatever. Pour in a can of beef broth and a can of french onion soup. Depending on the roast, double the soups. Add water if needed until roast is covered 3/4 of the way. Cover and simmer until tender - sometimes (depending on the cut of the meat) may take an hour or more. When tender, throw in canned potatoes and carrots. You can thicken if you want to.

MY Favorite is using the pressure cooker. Do about the same as above but cooks in a lot less time.

Hello at the table I wanted to let you all know Cyn made it to the Dr.s safe and sound. I will let her fill in the details of the trip and Dr. visit.

I made angel hair pasta with hamemade meat sauce with spicy Italian sausage. Garlic bread to soak up the goodness ha ha! I steamed carrots, broccli, spinache, and topped it with a little of my sauce ( I had to test it ). Very good.

The earthquake last night was small. Always a reminder though. Thanks Jaxs

I do my Pot Roast the same way my grandmother did. I start with a rump roast. Salt and pepper it and then brown on all sides in a pot with oil. After it is all browned I take it out and wipe up the grease(that's my choice). I put the meat back in the pot and add enough water to come up about half way on the meat. I add beef bullion cubes and sliced onions. Put the cover on and simmer about 2 hours(depending on size). Make sure there is still enough water and then add peeled carrots. Put cover back on and simmer until done. Take meat and veggies out and make a pan brown gravy with the broth and drippings. Slice the meat and add it to the pot of gravy. Very moist and very good. Serve with mashed potatoes, peas, and rolls. Oh so good.

Sounds good.


Amber- Thanks for the update. I think "oven fried" zucchini would be great. Hmm. What kind of "healthy" dipping sauce?

Tonight's dinner was penne pasta, chicken, mushrooms and broccoli in a light white sauce. My DH and DS said it was good. I didn't eat it or taste it, I had soup...........stomach problems
I marinated chicken and beef to have on Sunday. Soaked the skewers, threaded tons of kabobs, went to put them on the gas (propane) grill.........EMPTY I'm not having much luck cooking anymore

Everyone's dinner sounded great.
