Sunday supper: pot roast
Alas! my last pot roast. This one was purchased "on sale" last October @ $2.99/lb, down from $4.99/lb-a ridiculous price that I'd never pay. I am now watchful of a sale to restock the freezer. Other ingredients: a can of golden mushroom soup (a splurge aka luxury item as it's expensive even when selected with a cpn, which is a rare find), a pouch of gifted to me, onion soup mix, and not pictured: black pepper.
Remove meat from packaging, rinse and place FROZEN block of meat into an oval Crock Pot.
Top with contents of soup can, season with a generous amount of black pepper, a spice that I like with beef.
Sprinkle contents of onion soup pkt over beef, cover and cook on low. Done. Makes it's own gravy as well.
Sides will be the aforementioned gravy, mashed potatoes, carrots-which I will add to the CP later this afternoon. This is to become a planned over meal for Tuesday: stroganoff.
Here's DS # 2's plate. DS # 1 called at the last minute, while still at work, wanting to join us for supper, so we cooked the corn on the cob and stretched the meal. I still have plenty for Tuesday's planned over stroganoff.
