As I was making that great chili, and cleaning the kitchen, I made sure to get our Shabbat dinner together. Another reason I didn’t have these blogs up last night.
I love writing, but its considered working, and when your Jewish, that’s a no no.
I’m catching up tonight though!
Anyway, I defrosted those roast for a little bit before using my awesome kitchen gadget, the crockpot.
Tip: make your crockpot, AND crockpot liners your friend during the week. You’re welcome.
I just added a family size of beef broth and a cup of water to the pot, and turned it on high. Around 3am, I got up, turned it down to low, and added 2 family sized canned yams to the pot, and recovered it.
This morning, I had Brandon turn it on keep warm. I didn’t add any seasonings to it since my three eat their roast three different ways
Brandon: tons of ketchup
Anastasia “Annie”: bbq sauce
Emily: whatever she feels like adding at the moment.
In normal cases, I would have added bbq sauce, brown sugar, and pepper. Mixed and cooked for a little longer to cook the flavors in.
Tip: when you cook mean this way it’s easier for a person to eat it if the have teeth issues or chewing issues like Brandon does.
The fat was to the point it melt in your mouth. It came out great. I also got to really relax on Shabbat, except checking on my mom. She really sick at the moment, so having this taken care of early helped out my household.
Roast: 23.00(bought two)
Beef Broth: 2.75
Grand total: 30.10 plus tax.
I still have leftovers of that too, son you know what’s going to happen.
Tell me a working mom of three, in college, and business owner/actress can’t get things done.
I’ll swift kick you.
