I Landed Somewhere!


I had to endure over a week without my sewing machine...it was awful! 
I had to go THREE WHOLE DAYS without the internet...it was so painful!
I had to eat out a lot...okay, so that wasn't so bad.

Now I can't find anything, but my sewing machine is set up
and I managed to sew a few things today. Whoohoo!

I fixed a homemade dinner for the first time in a while using a recipe I'd seen circulating around on Facebook and places around the internet. They call it Mississippi Roast for reasons unknown to me. Maybe it's something commonly made in Mississippi? It has lots of butter, but you can use less or none at all.

MISSISSIPPI ROAST
3 to 5 pound chuck roast
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
1 package dry Au Jus mix
1 stick of butter (you can use less or none at all)
5 whole pepperoncini peppers
Place roast in Crock Pot and sprinkle with dry packages of Ranch dressing and Au Jus Mix. Top with one stick butter (it can be made with no butter or a little less than one stick) and 5 whole pepperoncini peppers. DO NOT ADD WATER! Cook for 8 hours on low. Shred or slice roast and serve with gravy and potatoes or rice, if desired. It is very, very tender with just a little kick to it...yummy!

Moving is dreadful, but once everything is all put away, it's worth all the trouble. Welcome back!
