So, I have found a little cheat for making a slow cooked pot roast….using Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces. I loved the Tavern Style Pot Roast, and have the Korean BBQ flavor in the cupboard for next week.
All you need is to place a piece of Chuck Roast, Campbell’s sauce, carrots, onions, and mushrooms. Turn on the slow cooker on low for 8 hours. Serve with potato’s and a vegetable side like broccoli. This will provide you with at least 4 servings and some meat leftovers for sandwiches.
I was so lucky in our pouch swap….look at my new pouch, with the fabulous Melody Miller Typewriter fabric !! I love the grey corduroy on the bottom as well. My partner made this large pouch from the Noodlehead open wide zipper pouch tutorial. Great, isn’t it? I am a very happy camper 🙂
Look at that cute pocket in the inside 🙂
I already know that this week, my schedule is going to be kind of chaotic at work…for instance between 1-5pm today I had 8 meetings…totally crazy. So, this week I want to keep our meal plan simple.
This week has been a little difficult – in total over 4 days, I have spent 24 hours in the airport due to cancelled flights to and from New York. Very tedious. Good news is, I got two rows of hexagons almost completed.
In desperate need of vegetables (airports are not the best for healthy food)…Today we are having coleslaw and Carrot raisin salad. The cabbages and carrots came from our garden.
Most of our vegetables this week are from the garden, which made it a very short list for the week.

A Whoop Whoop for our garden this week. The cauliflower, carrots and a cabbage were ready for harvesting. I don’t know why but I feel “winter” vegetables need so much more washing. I did learn a good trick though, fill a bowl up of water and a tsp of salt and stick the recently harvested vegetables in the solution….all the bugs come out and die.
Here are some photos of the harvested vegetables…..Carrots, Cabbage, Cauliflower respectively.
The cauliflower may be a little mature based on the edges but we are going to give it a try anyway and add it to our indian chicken dish tonight.
UPDATE: The cauliflower tasted great with the Indian chicken dish.
That brings us to the meal plan for the week. I am out of town this week Mon–> Thu so the boys are fending for themselves.
