Fall Food

Sayre is hosting Fun Monday this week and she would like to know what foods we crave in fall. It seems only fitting that one of the first things I fix when the weather gets cooler is a recipe that I am pretty sure I found on Sayre's blog once upon a time.

I have, of course, tweaked it. It's what I do.

Crock pot roast

Take some vegetables, whatever you have on hand, although I favor the traditional carrots, onions and potatoes. Chunk them and put them in the bottom of the crock pot. On top of these, place a frozen roast. I prefer a nice little pork tenderloin. Put enough California blend garlic salt on the roast to completely cover it. Put the lid on and turn it on. I usually just turn it on high for however long it will cook. Can you tell that I am not really crock pot savvy?

That's it. I know it sounds too simple and easy to work but this is the best roast ever! Oh, and if you don't have veggies in your house, the supermarket carries a frozen stew blend (onions, potatoes, carrots, and celery) that works well also.

Yum! DO you put water in it? My mom passed one on to me - boston butt rubbed with butter and sage and cooked in the crock pot. Oh my was that tasty! My crock pot gets a little workout when the weather turns!

Thanks for playing - it's so much more fun when someone else plays!

yum! I love the crockpot this time of year, too, I think it's because I feel like I can free up the oven for something else, and then you smell the stuff cooking all day, and say at the end of the day, you bake a loaf of bread and it warms up the kitchen at just the right time of day! excellent! I'll be posting soon!

Sounds good. I turn mine up to high for 1/2 hour and then down to low for however many hours until I can't stand the wonderful aroma anymore and need to dig in.

I love a good roast in the crockpot, but I often wonder if it's fair to leave the dogs home alone all day with the increasing smell!
