Simple Pot Roast

3 to 4 pound chuck roast
6 small red potatoes
3 large carrots
1 onion
3 cups water
1 package beef gravy mix
[salt, pepper, garlic powder]

Place roast in crock pot. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Quarter the potatoes and slice the carrots and onion into 2" pieces. Place all the vegetables on top of the roast.
Shake the dry gravy mix in a jar with the water, and pour over the roast. Set crock pot to high for 1 hour, then low for 5 hours.

My husband made this yesterday as I was sick. It was so good, lots of rich brown gravy and tender meat.

4 Ingredient Taco Chicken


•3 pounds of Boneless Chicken (I used half breast and half thigh)
•2 cans of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilis
•1 packet of Taco Seasoning
•about 1 cup of Chicken Broth

1.Pour the diced tomatoes into the slow cooker. Add the taco seasoning and mix thoroughly.
2.Place the chicken in the slow cooker.
3.Pour chicken broth over the chicken until the chicken is submerged in the broth and tomato mixture. Stir to combine everything.
4.Put the lid on the slow cooker and set to low. After 4-5 hours the chicken will be fall apart tender.
5.Use a fork to remove the chicken from the slow cooker. Shred with two forks.
6.Use a slotted spoon to scoop the tomatoes out of the sauce, and add to the chicken. Add about 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker to the chicken and stir. I discarded the extra liquid in the slow cooker, and returned the chicken to the slow cooker and set to the keep warm setting during the party.

Homemade Instant Oatmeal

This recipe is great - although it looks like it has more than 6 ingredients, it actually only has 5 ingredients for the oatmeal mix. Mix this up, then take a time-saving scoop and add a couple of ingredients to your liking to individualize it.
