Vege Beef Soup and Laundry

Yesterday we thoroughly enjoyed our first taste of the side of beef we purchased. A Rump Roast was put into the oven to slowly roast all afternoon . . . let me tell you, the smells coming from the kitchen as that roast cooked was almost too much to handle. You know you are going to have a great meal when the males in the house are sitting at the table BEFORE they are called. The roast was VERY yummy and was eaten it its entirety! I planned ahead though and put on two rump roasts for another meal . . . vegetable beef soup. I had other things in mind, but I wanted to put something in the crock pot today so that I wouldn't have to tend it much. Let me tell you, I love crock pot meals . . . twenty minutes and the dinner is on to simmer for the day!

Here is how I made it . . .
  • I shred one rump roast and put it in the crock pot
  • added two cans of diced tomatoes
  • onions and mushrooms were simmered and added to the pot
  • frozen mixed veges added in
  • a few potatoes chopped and added in
  • broth also added
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
All of the above are in the crock pot and will cook together all afternoon. Tonight we will enjoy a nice home made soup that is such a great comfort food!

Laundry is the name of the game for my day. How about you?

I LOVE the smell of a roast cooking. Nothing like it.
