Simple Sunday – Crockpot Roast Beast

Did you notice that there is no breakfast recipe in the title??  Well, I’ve had such an overwhelming response to my breakfast recipes (she says dripping with sarcasm) that I thought maybe nobody cares about making breakfast on Sunday easy.   So lets shift gears, shall we?

You’ve already skipped breakfast, the pastor got long winded and everyone is starving!  Now what?   Ahhhh, the handy dandy crockpot once again comes into the picture.   Since there is no baked oatmeal, French toast or breakfast casserole in your crockpot you should have plenty of time to fill it with this lovely recipe before leaving for church.

You will need to consider the size of your crockpot, the size of your family and how much they can inhale on a Sunday afternoon.

Purchase one large beef roast, several cans of cream of mushroom soup and beef broth (equal amounts of broth and soup).   Dump your soup and broth in the crockpot and blend.  Put your roast in, put the lid on, turn on high and go to church!

When you arrive home you’ll be met by the scrumptious smell of dinner.   Now while the kidlets are taking off their Sunday clothes remove the beef roast and do one of these things:

a.  pour in a bag of egg noodles and let cook until done.

b.  mix up batch of homemade dumplings and pop them on top of the juice and cover until done

c.  look blankly at the computer screen and ask “how in the world do you make dumplings?   Aaaahh, glad you asked.   In a large bowl dump out some SELF RISING FLOUR, add water and stir until it reaches the consistency biscuit dough or a little thinner.   Drop by spoonfuls on top of the juice in the crockpot.   Cover and let cook until the dumplings are done (that means they are no longer wet inside or out).

After choosing any of these options, go take off those gosh awful pantyhose, put on something comfy.  Return to the kitchen, slap a premade salad on the table and dive in!
