Pot Roast Recipe

This post may contain an affiliate link. Click for the full disclosure.

It couldn’t be a better day for this Pot Roast Recipe as it’s a cold and rainy day here in Cincinnati! Yesterday I mentioned how ya’ll could enter to be the next CrockStar for the chance to win $5,000 and be named the Ultimate Crock-Pot Crock Star. All you need to do to enter is make your very own selfie video as you are prepping your favorite Crock Pot Recipe at CrockStars.com. You have until October 31, 2014 to submit your entry!

So today I thought I’d go ahead and enter my Pot Roast Recipe! So here’s my Pot Roast Recipe video that I told ya I’d share with ya’ll…take note of my 70′s Crock-Pot! I received a new Casserole Style Crock-Pot (that links to Amazon and you can save $5 off CrockPots right now!) for putting this video together for ya’ll so I will be sure to share one of my families favorite dishes once I make that next week!

If you don’t drink beer you can totally replace it with water. Also, if you don’t have time for homemade mashed potatoes you can quarter brown, red or yellow potatoes the morning of. You don’t want to cook the potatoes overnight because they get to mushy.

Pot Roast Recipe
 

Ingredients
  • 5-7 lb roast
  • 3 stalks celery, cut in ½” pieces
  • 5-6 carrots, cut in ½” pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, quarted
  • 1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup
  • 2 Light beers (I happened to have Bud Light on hand!)
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper

Instructions
  1. Place celery, carrots and onion in the bottom of the Crock-Pot. Next sprinkle in the packet of onion soup. Place roast (fat side up) on top of veggies. Pour in water and beer. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the roast. Allow to cook overnight and all day the following day. The longer you cook the meat the more tender the meat will become.

101 Non-Toy Gift Ideas for Children

This post may contain an affiliate link. Click for the full disclosure.

101NonToyGiftIDeasForKids
You need to purchase a gift for a child and you just aren’t sure what to buy, right?!? Stop wasting your money on toys that will never get played with or Mom will throw away. Focus on giving a non-toy gift and help to create memories that will last a lifetime.

My children LOVE their Playdoh Recipe that we have created over the years. This is something that is asked for by friends and family. For gifts the girls make a few different colors and store in a air tight container. We also purchase a Playdoh Toy that can be used with the playdoh to make creating a little more fun. Now, I will warn you, make sure it is okay with the parent before giving this. I’ve found out that since it creates a mess some families only play with it outside!

One of the best presents that I ever received as a child was a non-toy gift and one where memories were created. One of my most detailed memories I have was of my Aunt and Cousin taking me to Gatlinburg. I searched in caves, met a bear and fed him apples, saw hundreds of deer at Cades Cove and even rode my first go-cart!

Now, as a Mother of 3, I vow not to purchase toys for my children. However, the guilty Momma in me comes out and then I start coming up with Non-Toy Gift Ideas that I can give my children. That guilty voice in my head appears again telling me to purchase those damn toys and then I look into the play room and see the amount of stuff that is on the floor. It’s then I renew that vow!

My children are drowning in toys…We donate toys twice a year, and while they always appreciate getting another one, the new toy  is usually played with for a few weeks and then put away to collect dust. It’s not always easy to come up with cool alternatives to give as a present. However, over the past year I have sat down and compiled a list of fun non-toy gifts to give kids for birthdays, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and beyond.

  1. Zoo membership
  2. Museum membership

Buy purchasing a membership for the family versus buying individual gifts you may even be Saving More. than you actually think. Plus, you won’t have to be trekking all over town looking for the perfect gifts!
