Foodie Friday

One of my goals in my quest to better myself for my family, is to try a new recipe once a week.

I became obsessed with the Crockpot Girls website recently, so I've tried quite a few actually. The one I was planning to post today was a Chicken Pesto Pasta that I found here. Butt... surprisingly, we didn't so much like it. I think it was just the brand of pesto I used though? I'm not quite sure, because I usually love this meal. This one had a funny aftertaste.

So, instead, I'll share the roast I did on Sunday (from Crockpot Girls). Trey said it was the best roast he's ever had. That is saying something!!

To Die For Roast

1 (4-5 lbs) beef roast, any kind (we used a Chuck roast)

1 package brown gravy mix, dry
1 package Italian salad dressing mix, dry
1 package ranch dressing mix, dry
1/2 C water

*Place beef roast in crock pot
*Mix the dried mixes together and sprinkle over the roast
*Pour the water around the roast
*Cook on low for 7-9 hours

We'll definitely make this one again :)

If you want to try the chicken pesto pasta again, try making your own pesto. It's really simple! :)

Can't wait to try the roast recipe soon! Thanks!

Thanks for this recipe! My crockpot and I are about to become best friends again, I really can't stand cooking lately and that is very sad.

It sounds yummy! I am going to have to try that one. I've became friends with my crockpot lately (since it's getting slightly cooler in GA), and I am always looking for recipes.
