Slow Cooking On A Slow Sunday

After a bad start to the weekend, Friday was not a good day for me, the rest of the weekend was fantastic.  Saturday we celebrated Kaylee’s birthday with a party at their karate school which I am going to share in a separate post.  On Sunday we did absolutely nothing and it felt great!

The day wasn’t completely lazy.  I worked on my Sunday post, jotted down some ideas for my basket website which I am revamping, I put a pot roast in the slow cooker following a new recipe which I’ll share with you today and I chatted back and forth on Facebook with my niece Tiffany in California about recipes and spices.   It was a very relaxing day.

Today I’ll be running errands, picking up a few Christmas gifts and getting some things down around the house.  I have three little Christmas Candy bouquets to finish up for someone and a few gift baskets to make so I’ll be working on those too.

Yesterday I made Pepsi Cola Pot Roast.  This was a very tender pot roast and it is tasty.  I will admit that my favorite is still the Three Envelope Pot Roast.  I don’t know what I was hoping for, maybe a Pepsi cola taste or something so I felt that I was left looking for “something,” and even though it is tasty and super tender, it lacks the same great taste as the three envelope version.  I won’t say that I won’t make this again because I will.

Walt loved the roast but if we’re being completely honest here there isn’t much of anything that I make that my little pooh bear papa doesn’t love especially if it has anything to do with meat, mashed potatoes and gravy.  Meat, mashed potatoes and gravy are to Walt what honey is to Winnie the Pooh.

So today I’ll leave you with Pepsi Cola Pot Roast, if you try it let me know how it turns out.
