Bring Back the Old
Block Party Fun

Bon Appetite

Oh la! la! Delicious!

So I have been trying to be a good wife and Mum and try to cook more at home, thus saving some cash-ola. So I got down some old cookbooks, blew off the dust, and went shopping.  I was actually amazed at how little I really spent on 3 meals plus left overs compared to what it would have been to eat out for us three. I have been using the crock pot a bit more cause it is just easier to get the meal on in the morning, work all day and then supper be ready.  Even though I work from home, time goes so fast and before you know it, I am freakin about what is for supper and then I am like lets eat out, lets get take out, and my butt and pocket book don't need it. So far so good.

One of the recipes I dug out was for French Dip Sandwiches.  When we used to eat at the Y-Not BBQ before they closed down (big pout) we always ordered, when I didn't order the BBQ chicken salad, was the Mother Lode, and it was a French Dip that was so delicious.  I forgot when I shopped about the cheese and tomato on it, so this one was not quite like it, but man these were so good , you have to try them, plus the house smelled so good while they were cooking.

Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches

5 lb. boneless beef rump roast (I can't remember what cut I got, the butcher says they are not called rump roast time I will write it down and fix it in my book)

2 10 1/2 oz cans beef broth

1 onion, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

2 tsp. beef bouillon granules

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

8 crusty rolls

Place all ingredients except rolls in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours or high setting for 4-6 hours.  Thinly slice meat, reserving broth for dipping.  Put sliced meat on rolls. Add condiments to your liking.  At the Y-Not we had tomatoes, and cheese too on our sandwich.

Tomorrow I have my first class for the Autumn Splendor stamp set, here is another card they will be doing, I got the inspiration from a card by gbarron over at Splitcoast Stampers, I changed it up a bit.
