Before I get started, I just wanted to point out my Contact page up above! I now have my e-mail address listed, as well as a link to my Pinterest. Twitter and Facebook links are coming soon! I was inspired to create this page thanks to Katy's 28-Day Blog Challenge for the month of February. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions! I'd love to hear from you :)
Now, on to the post!
I wanted to share a Crock Pot recipe with y'all today! This is new recipe #8 for me in Julie's Crock Pot Challenge. I must say, I've enjoyed using my slow cooker a lot more this month, which has really made dinner very easy and low-stress on some days (tasty, too!).
Today's recipe is something I came up with on my own after seeing Cream of Potato soup in the store on Monday.
- 1.5 pounds of Chuck Tender Roast (or whatever roast you'd like to make)
- 1 can Cream of Potato soup
- 1 packet Onion Soup mix
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- About 1-2 cups of beef broth (enough to make the Cream of Potato soup a little runny)
- 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
- 4 red onions, sliced
1. Slice potatoes and peel/slice carrots, then place roast, potatoes, and carrots in the slow cooker.
2. Mix together Cream of Potato soup, worcestershire sauce, onion soup mix, and beef broth. This should have a pudding-like consistency.
3. Pour soup mix over the roast, potatoes and carrots. Spread it out so that it covers everything in the slow cooker.
I served this roast by itself, since the veggies and a starch were already in the mix!
Let me know what you think if you try this recipe!
My half marathon training taught me an important lesson: STRETCH!! Stretch before working out, stretch after working out, stretch if something's hurting...just stretch!
I found when I didn't stretch, I would be more sore and/or injure something after a tough run or workout. When I did stretch, my muscles would recover faster and I wouldn't feel as many residual aches and pains.
In an effort to recover from Sunday's 13.1 miles, I decided to just stretch on Tuesday. I found a video on YouTube I wanted to share that's a good full body stretch routine.
Question for you: What's your favorite stretch routine? Are you good at remembering to stretch, or are you like me and don't stretch with much regularity?
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
