Have you ever seen this crazy video. A friend (Hi Muffy!) sent it to me years ago and I still get a kick out of it. I like that Holiday song, too.
Hearty slow cooker dinners are a staple around my house in the busy winter months. The same goes for spring, when sports season is in full swing and we are not walking through the door much before 8 pm.
Recently it was lovely to come home to the heady smell of this oniony roast. Only 5 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to put together, it couldn’t be an easier meal.
I left the “Lick Your Plate Clean” description that the recipe I followed used, because that sauce really is plate-licking good. It has ginger ale in it! Who knew that would work?
I had some leftover pot roast that I shredded and used to make some awesome quesadillas. Just layer meat and cheese and maybe some pickled jalapeños (yes!) on tortillas and grill until the cheese melts.
3-5 lb pot roast
1/2 cup flour
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
2 cups ginger ale (you can use sugar-free if you like)
Mashed potatoes (I love the refrigerated kind, which really make this the easiest of dinners)
Parsley or a green veg to brighten up the plate, totally optional
1. Sprinkle roast with a little bit of flour (reserve remaining flour) Place beef in slow cooker.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine soup mix, gravy mix, remaing flour and ginger ale. Mix well. Pour over roast.
3. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Serve with mashed potoates or noodles.
Serves 8 to 10

Here’s Juliet with ‘Avalon’, the song in the Russian tunnel of death video. She’s in a tunnel, too.
How about some Death Of Juliet, too? (Pixie Juliet above would be dead if she was in the Russian tunnel instead of her quiet one.)
I love this catchy tune.
“All we’ve got is time,
I’m digging your smile”
