Best Roast Ever

The best, and the easiest, roast you'll ever make.

  • Put one roast in your crockpot. I use whatever I have - chuck, tri-tip, anything.
  • Cut up 4 to 6 potatoes (regular or red) and put on top of the roast.
  • Cut up a bunch of carrots and put them on top of the roast.
  • In a bowl, mix one can Campbell's Golden Mushroom and one can Campbell's French onion. If I'm doing a larger roast or lots of veggies, I add some beef broth or more french onion. Add a little salt and pepper.
  • Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Enjoy the most flavorful, tender roast you've ever had!

If I say it out loud...?

I've been stressed lately. I don't get stressed very often - rarely, actually - but lately it seems everything has happened at once.

So I wonder: if I write all my stressors down and say them out loud, will it help? Here goes:

1. I have a group presentation for school this week.
2. Finals are next week.
3. I hate my job and am desperately applying for a new one.
4. We're looking for a house.
5. Did I mention I hate my job?

Whew. I feel better. I plan on lots of posting after finals.
