Busy nights need easy dinners.
Just throw 3 seasoning packets together with water and salsa, pour over a beef roast and slow cook for 8 hours. The oniony sauce gets a terrific flavor punch from the salsa and the herbs in the Italian dressing.
When you are ready to eat, melt some Swiss cheese on slider rolls and top with the shredded beef and a creamy chili sauce.
Serve with mashed potatoes, smothered in the extra sauce, and a green vegetable to round out the meal.
1 (3-4 lb) beef roast
1 cup water
1 cup salsa
1 envelope (1 oz) onion soup mix
1 envelope (0.6 oz) Italian dressing mix

Monday is so much more bearable with music on. This new “laptop pop” tune by Oscar is a perfect start to the week.
‘Open Up’ slinks its way into your ears. I love the cool beat, catchy little jangles, and the almost monosyllabic deep vocals.
