Since Mike and I get to choose tonight’s dinner, we chose a sandwich. Roast Beef to be exact. And for the record, I chose it last night :0) I made 3 Packet Roast Beef in the crockpot and served it on some of my leftover Oregano French Bread, toasted, of course. My personal preference is to add a little cheese and some pickled banana peppers (but you won’t find anyone else in the fam adding the peppers).


3 Packet Roast Beef
2-3 lb favorite cut of roast (I used tri-tip this time around, b/c it’s what I had)
1 pkt Au Jus dry mix
1 pkt Italian dressing dry mix
1 pkt Mesquite Seasoning dry mix
3 c water

This is really difficult, so follow along closely: Take meat out of package and place in crockpot. Open all three packages of dry mix and sprinkle over meat. Add water. Place lid on crockpot. Set on low for 6-8 hours.

I personally like to shred the meat once it’s finished, and since the flavor is so intense, I usually add more water to make the meat extra juicy :0) Makes for great dipping sauce!

Since I slaved over dinner all day, I thought I’d throw in an over-the-top dessert too. How about some cookies.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cup quick-cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a large bowl, cream together shortening, margarine, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats until just combined. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or light brown. Don’t over-bake. Cool and store in an airtight container.


However, don’t do this….

When I took out my first pan of cookies they looked like this:
I couldn’t figure out what I did wrong….so I went back through the recipe and realized I had forgotten the flour…oops!



These look a lot better, at least Clark thinks so :0)
