Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

So This is What I Got - - -

At the grocery store. I think I'll COOK today!!

Placed roasts in the bottom of the Crock Pot, chopped up veggies, layered on top - - - (NO, those aren't ANTS in my picnic - - - that is PEPPER.)

Mixed up some of this - - -

Poured it on - - -

Covered, waited for the hour hand to pass 12 six and a half times and - - -

This is what we got!!! A Pot Roast Dinner fit for the Royal Family.

And for dessert - - - Cherry Pecan Crumble. (Can you believe I did all this!?! I can't.)

O.K., I'll settle for the recipe for the gravy. Also, any other liquid in the crock pot?

The gravy is one package of dry onion soup mix, two cans of cream of mushroom soup, and about one can of water all blended together.

Nope - - - no other liquid except what comes out of the vegies and the meat as they cook.

The topping on the cherry crumble is one stick of melted butter blended into one dry yellow cake mix, then sprinkled on top of two cans of cherry pie filling. When finished with that, sprinkle on chopped pecans, then bake at 350 until bubbly and golden brown on top.

Hash Brown Casserole for Jaye:

One large bag of unpre-browned frozen shredded hashbrowns. Thaw and cook these in the microwave until they soften.

Mix one can cream of mushroom soup, 8 ounces of sour cream, 8 ounces of cream cheese, dry onion flakes (or chop away if you prefer) at least 2 cups of grated cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Add diced ham.

When potatoes are finished, mix them into the binding mixture. Spread into a 9 x 12 cake pan. Sprinkle top generously with more grated cheese. (I nearly always use co-jack)

Bake at 350 until hot, bubbly, and browning on top.

Oh yes, I forgot - - - I nearly always blend some milk into the binding to make it a bit more stirrable.

yummy!! A little different than the one I've been using...I think I'll try it!! Thanks!! Cherry you use a can of cherry pie filling?? I missed that part.

Actually, I use two cans of cherry pie filling. The actual recipe called for one can of cherry pie filling and one can of diced pineapple. I like it better with just cherry.

I think you could use two cans of ANY pie filling you LOVE. You could probably even use fresh sliced apples coated with cinnamon, sugar, and flour - - - as long as you sliced the apples really thin so they'd get soft about the same time the topping got crunchy.
