There's a lot to protest these days and the same ol' routine Thanksgiving dinner menu is one of them. So...
...We are "going rogue" this year for Thanksgiving!
I am putting together a pot roast tonight in the big ol' crock pot and will wake up to coffee, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and...
Lazy and Cheap Crock Pot Pot Roast
A pot roast
Bag of celery hearts
Bag of mini carrots
About 10 red skin potatoes
A medium yellow onion
Salt and pepper
1 tsp dried Rosemary
1/2 tsp dried Thyme
Salad seasoning mix
2 bay leaves
2 cans of beef broth
This quantity is for a 5 quart crock pot. Use less for a smaller one.
Chop up what needs chopping up and lay the veggies in the crock pot, to the level where you have about 3 inches depth left from the top.
Sprinkle the rosemary and thyme, salt and pepper on the veggie layers. Place a bay leaf at either end.
Lay the pot roast on the veggies and then drown it with the 2 cans of beef broth. I use a salad seasoning mix and sprinkle it over the meat along with salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on low for 8 1/2 to 9 hours or until the meat falls apart and the veggies are soft.
We will also have buttered sweet peas, tossed salad, Cranberry Celebration from Kroger, and Hawaiian dinner rolls.
On top of this we will enjoy some Frische's pumpkin pie and Redi Whip for dessert!
And don't forget the coffee!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!
