Better late than never right?
Ok, fine, today was crazy and I am NOW getting to my computer!
Share a Spoon with Think Tank Momma is about Christmas traditions (with food).
My sister has Christmas day at her house, I bring a side or whatever. She also does a traditional Norwegian cookie (I only stood from a far when I was younger while she and my dad made them), she has the iron and is much more of a baker than I am.
However, Christmas Eve I make the same thing every year.
Go Mommy's Slow Cooker Pot Roast
1 (2 lb.) boneless chuck roast
1 1/2 Tbs. ground pepper
14 small red potatoes quartered (apx. 2 lbs.)
1 medium onion
1 (16 oz.) package baby carrots
2 (10 oz.) cans French Onion soup
1 (2.8 oz.) tube dried tomato paste
1/2 c. water
Place pot roast in the slow cooker, arrange vegetable around the roast. Combine soup and tomato paste, pour over the roast. Cook on high for 1 hour, the cook on low for 9 hours.
You can take the drippings and make a gravy for the pot roast with a little flour and some water.
I love making this on Christmas eve because it is easy and then everything is done, all I do is add some rolls and a salad and everyone enjoys the meal and I get to spend time with my kiddos instead of cooking!
Of course for breakfast on Christmas morning we have the same thing as Momma Pixie (the baked french toast, I know it as overnight french toast).
