Recipe Monday

So I mentioned last week how much I love to use my Crock-Pot on Monday. It is nice to come home on the first day back to work and have dinner waiting. Today I made TDF (to die for) Roast. It is so simple and absolutely wonderful. I have given the recipe to many people,and everybody has raved about it. I myself got the recipe from a wonderful lady that I "met" on babycenter.com. in June 2006. We were both pregnant with our boys at the same time and were posting on our birth board. There is a group of about 15 of us that have moved to a private board. We have become quite close even though most of us have never met in person. I love how the internet can bring people together!!!!

TDF Roast
1 package ranch dressing
1 package Italian dressing
1 package brown gravy
Roast (I usually use chuck) however big you need for your family
vegetables (I use a small bag of baby carrots and whole mini portabella mushrooms)
1/2 cup water.

I rub the dressing and gravy into the meat and then place everything in a Crock-Pot on low. Cook all day.

Tonight I fixed mashed potatoes to serve with the roast. I even peeled and cut the potatoes and put them in cold water in the fridge last night, so I wouldn't have to do it this evening. Sometimes I put sliced potatoes in with the roast and let them cook all day.

Oh, and I have a new respect for people that "stage" food to be photographed. This doesn't look very good, but I promise it is. Try it, and let me know what you think.

  9. Hi,
    My name is Nita and I found your blog looking through the Cricut website. One link lead to another link and then another link......and so on and so forth.
    I live in Louisville so I was excited when I saw you were from somewhere near there. I am a former teacher so I found another thing we have in common. I am just starting into this scrapbooking. I just bought a Cricut Expression but I haven't used it yet. I'm looking forward to trying it out. Your recipe sounds great!
