SUCCESS!!!

Last night I put in a rather large piece of rump roast, carrots, potatoes, onions, beef broth and water into my crock pot and this morning? VOILA!!! EFL ROAST!!! Holy cow I woke up to that smell and had a little taste myself :) That's right I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for learning a new meal *Does crazy manly victory dance around the kitchen in my t-shirt and shorts*

Did the veggies go mushy? My mouth is watering just thinking about it (the roast not mushy veggies :P. I have a crock pot and rarely use it. Me thinks I need to change that.

mm mmm mmmmm

Actually the veggies are mushy but in that melt in your mouth sort of way. I followed the directions pretty much to a T from the EFL book although stuff like the garlic and paprika I added into the crockpot instead of grilled first as I find that those stick to the skiller more than they should and I'd rather have them in the mix ;) But yes...I browned the meat, but in the beef broth, veggies and spices, etc and 10 hours later...voila!! It's going to be a great dinner at work :)

Sounds good. I will have to dig out my EFL book and give that one a try. Giggling at manly victory dance...wondering just what that entails hehehe Picturing a gladiator, sword swinging, chest thumping kind of Roman thing.

Funny visual. :P

actually it just more of a bizarre robot dance in high speed while making sure no one can see through the windows...not as manly as one might imagine come to think of it...

lol well it's either Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett. I got into Gaiman via his Sandman graphic novels and so many people told me about Pratchett and everyone suggested Good Omens and I was quite happy with it :)

I love the Pot Roast EfL recipe. It is so good on a chilly day. And it actually tastes better as a leftover in my opinion.

Yeah I'm going to be warming it up for dinner tonight at work. My coworker are pretty jealous. I told them for a combined 20 bucks I'll make another for them and bring it in tommorow night. I think they are taking up a collection. I had a little bit of it from the crockpot right before work today and had to stop...I would have eaten the whole thing if I wasn't careful lol!!
