We have just ended a budget series and one of the things that helps set the stage for success is having a plan. Menu planning definitly keeps me on target and in budget. Tomorrow is Foodie Friday. I will share my 14 day menu plan with you to give you some ideas. To the right of my blog is a Menu Plan button. Clicking that button takes you to the menu plans listed on this site.
Have a plan for the weekends. I don’t know about you, but Thursdays are my Friday. I am so ready for some downtime on Friday that cooking is the last thing I want to do. The same can be said for my Sundays. We don’t get home from church until after 1pm. By the time I get everyone down for a nap it’s 3:00 pm. Time to start dinner. No fun. So, I try to plan crock pot meals for Fridays and Sundays. We all need rest on Sunday so let your crock pot do the work for you. I just so happen to have a great recipe to get you started this weekend. *wink*
Crock Pot Ranch And Onion Flavored Roast
Author: Tara Norman
1 tbsp dill
1 tbsp thyme
1 tbsp garlic minced or salt (I used freshly ground salt)
1 package of GF French Onion Soup Mix (dry or both)
6-8 small red potatoes
GF Chicken or Beef Broth (pour in enough to reach the sides of the roast)
1-2 pound boneless chuck roast ( any kind of roast will do- this is a cheaper roast).
Put your roast and potatoes in first. Add seasoning. Pour in broth to desired level. Cook on low for 6-8 hours and let it go.
