Crock Pot Tuesday

The girls have gymnastics on Tuesdays, so I have been using my crock pot for dinners since we are out of the house from about 4:30-6pm. It's great to come home to dinner already made even if the sentiments about the dinner are less than positive. Most of the time Finley will help me chop up and fill the crock pot in the morning usually commenting that "I am not going to eat that." Nice.

So, today we are making pot roast in the crock pot. I get most of my recipes here, can you believe that she has used her crock pot everyday this year?

other things I have made:
Chicken and Dumplings - I added a whole bunch of veggies and used whole wheat biscuits

I want to try this applesauce, but I need to find my smaller crock pot for that... and Finley's birthday party is this weekend and I will be making caramel apples as party favors (that makes even me laugh in anxiety).

Like I said, most of the time the kids were less than satisfied with these meals. They are going through that weird don't-like-my-food-to-mix thing that is really annoying. Oh well, there are starving kids all over the world who wouldn't care if the veggies and rice are actually *GASP* touching.

I saw a trick for using your larger crock pot to make a smaller batch, this may work instead of searching for your smaller crock pot. See here, as well as a cool taco recipe: http://carascravings.blogspot.com/2008/10/conquering-crock-pot.html

Pot roast sounds yummy, it's rainy in NC today and that would be perfect!

I should totally do that on Tuesdays, we're always scrambling to get dinner ready before bedtime.
