pot roast and family fun night

18 Jan

i mentioned earlier this week that i love me some crock pot meals.  this is a family favorite around here.  pot roast.  it was a sunday, so we incorporated some family fun by getting a rocket that had to be put together for us to color and play in.

first up, the roast.  i think i read this “recipe” in a martha magazine but i am not sure.  we make it often enough in the winter, i just “know” it now.  but it is good!  we make mashed potatoes to go with it.

get yourself a roast

1 Tbl corn starch


8 medium carrots peeled and cut into inch-ish pieces

2 medium onions quartered (unless you like to eat the onions…then cut them up to your liking)

2 Tbl Worcestershire

stir cornstarch and 2 Tbl of cold water until smooth.  put it in the bottom of the crock pot.  add carrots, onions and salt and pepper and toss in the cornstarch mixture.  salt and pepper the beef and put it on top of the veggies.  drizzle the top of the roast with Worcestershire sauce and cook.  high 6 hrs…or put it on for low most of the day like i do.

its yummy!

these kids are excited about the after dinner fun to come…

but first, dinner.

time for rocket fun…

yes…the walls are not complete in our basement…but my kids love basements.  so we still play down there.  someday it will all be complete.

this was a fun family activity because we all could partake in it.  sometimes when we try to play board games or do puzzles…a certain little boy starts to get a bit bored and begins to throw things.  if he tosses this rocket, we will have trouble!

have a super fab weekend!!!

oooooh….and don’t forget we are running month-long GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate. (Winner will be announced on 2/15/13)
