Meat Revenge

Once upon a time, I was thawing a beautiful chuck roast in the fridge for dinner the next day. I had big plans of slow roasting it for a wonderful Sunday supper. Saturday night rolled around and the man was at the neighbor’s having some beers with the guys. Next thing I know, my beautiful chuck roast is missing. I smell something wonderful coming from the neighbor’s grill at 10:30 at night. Yes, that would be my beloved meat. It was delicious, but he got an earful!

So today, I was searching the kitchen for dinner plans. I had a big bag of potatoes and carrots. Pot Roast sounded good. But the only beef in the house was a giant ribeye steak. I know he loves his steaks on the grill, but I was in the mood for sweet revenge. Actually, I just really wanted pot roast and just so happened to get my payback in the process. Revenge never tasted so good:

I just cut up lots of potatoes and carrots and put them in the crock pot. Browned the steak, and followed the directions on the Lipton Onion Soup mix and cooked on high for about 5-6 hours.

Yesterday was a wedding set up. Lots of detail. I loved it!



Crock Pot Comfort

Okay,I’m loving my new George Foreman toy, but my all time favorite small appliance is the Crock Pot.  I love coming home after work and smelling the delicious aroma of Pot Roast before I even get inside.  Sooo comforting.

With a side of potatoes and carrots of course.

Breakfast was wonderful as well. Katie has shown me my new favorite way to have oatmeal: Baked oatmeal!

Delish.  Then I went to the gym for some weight training and running.  I’m loving how much stronger I’m feeling.  After lunch, I showered and grabbed a great lunch before heading out the door:

Thanks to my meal prepping on Sunday, I had grilled chicken and brown rice in the fridge to form the base of my lunch.  I added some Cholula hot sauce and microwaved.  Then topped with leftover mango salsa and Greek yogurt and more hot sauce.  It hit the spot.  I had some great eats today!  And more to come tomorrow.  Manicures and lunching with my lady friend.  Can’t wait!!

I’m also looking forward to this spooky dessert that I’ve been enjoying all week:

Reeses Pieces and peanut butter filled chocolate eyeballs, yum.  Fun fact.  The man’s nickname for me is “Peepers”.  That’s why he brought me home these chocolate peepers.  The package says “Creepy Peepers”.  Is he trying to tell me something?
