Well friends - it goes without saying that many things don't go to plan - my crock pot- pot roast recipe to be featured on Monday was one of them :) The meat was tough and chewy and overall was disappointing but for those who know me: 1) I'm stubborn/not easily dissuaded 2) I'm a master of leftovers/making something from nothing. That's how tonight's dinner was created...whether you've got a roast/stew that wasn't up to snuff or just have leftovers from one that was great...I took the roast, taters, carrots, onions the whole lot minus the liquid and whizzed it up in batches in the food processor. This in and of itself makes a lovely "hash" great fried up for breakfast with a fried egg. I however tried another trick by taking refrigerator biscuits, flattened into muffin cups, scoop of the hash, squirt of ketchup and topped with shredded cheese and baked up made for the great quick meal for the boys tonight. They loved it and I conquered the leftover universe :) Sigh my excitement is short lived as I now need to move on to other crock pot recipes to try for weeks to come...stay warm, happy, organized and well fed! xxx
