The thing about summer that plagues me the most is the fact that we just don’t eat much. I honestly think the kids and I could live on cold cereal and/or peanut butter sandwiches! Right now I’m not even missing our oven (it broke a little over a week ago – the stovetop still works).
One of our favorite summertime meals is Italian Beef in the crockpot. I love it because I can put it on first thing in the morning and forget about it. If we have a ball game or something, it’s waiting for us when we get home. Normally we have it with fresh garden veggies and potato salad the first night. And then finish it off the next day (or two if it’s a big roast) as sandwiches! YUM-O!!!
Rebekah’s Italian Beef
1 large BEEF roast (I so do not like pork roast – too much fat)
1 head of garlic – minced (or half a jar of the already minced stuff)
1/2 cup of water
Throw it all in the crockpot on low for 10 hours (or until it’s falling apart) and then pull apart. I pull it apart and then leave it in the juices in the crockpot so it’s super moist.
And now I’m off to add this to my menu for next week!
