3 Envelope Roast… or, How the crockpot saved my marriage

Well, in all seriousness, my marriage is, like, on the other side of the planet from needing saving. But… if it did, this roast could certainly do it. It takes exactly 2 minutes to start dinner, really, I timed it today.

Step 1: Get out crockpot and put in your pot roast meat.

Step 2: In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of warm water with 1 envelope of dry italian dressing mix, 1 envelope of dry ranch mix and 1 envelope of au jus mix.

Step 3: Pour over top of roast, put lid on and cook on low for 6 hours.








Step 4: Enjoy.


My marriage may not need saving, but what this roast DOES do for me is make my evening far less stressful on days when I am running errands and carting kids around for the good part of the day.

ANYWHOOOOO…. Now that we have that little bit of joy from my day out of the way…. What have you been working on this week? Me? Well, thanks for asking… I have been working on Kevin’s socks. They will hopefully be done by the middle of this next week.

I have also been working on my Knit-a-Long Kaftan sweater. We are setting out a pretty laid back pace, as all of us have many projects on our plates. It has taken us a few tries to get the gauge right, I looked all over the internet and found another knit a long from a while ago for the same sweater. The feedback was that the sweater runs large, and so far we have found this to be true.

If you are interested in joining us, I will be posting the specifics of the sweater tomorrow with a link to the pattern. I’ll start the online knit a long here next week…
