Happy Monday All!

Today is about getting organized. Carefully laid plans on the first day of the week mean less chaos for the next six days. Work orders processed: check. Laundry started: check. Fridge cleaned out: check. Grocery list written: checkity-check.

I have laid out my meals for the next four days and will post the ones that prove successful. Here is what's on the dinner horizon:

Monday: Sloppy Joes with salad (at Zachary's request)
Tuesday: Cranberry Pork with Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus
Wednesday: Denise's Curried Cauliflower with Breaded Chicken Strips
Thursday: Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup

For now, I will leave you with something I served up last night. It was perfect after a weekend filled with gaggles of kids and outdoor chores. While it simmered in the slow cooker, all who entered our home embraced its cozy, comfort-food aroma.

Shredded Beef on Kaisers

1 rump roast
1 package onion soup mix
beef broth
kaiser rolls

Pour about 1-2 cups of beef broth in crock pot. Place rump roast in and sprinkle with onion soup mix. Cook for 8 hours.

Once tender, shred beef apart with two forks. Serve on kaiser buns. Garnish with cheddar cheese and horseradish mayo if desired. Toss a salad for the side and you've got dinner!


  1. I can't wait to see what you think of the caulifower. Make lots, you may want to double the recipe.

  2. I'm so curious about it. It sounds unappealing, but I trust you!

  3. mmmm roast beef on a Kaiser! So good!
    x-nay on the cauliflowery-fay ... sounds risky...

  4. **drool** Beef dish looks/sounds delish, it's on my to-make list now! I'm curious about the torilla soup too, my kids love mexican!
