Crock Pot, day 3 and welcome

I would like to offer a Royal Welcome to Dear Diary! (can you hear the trumpets?)
LeMoDo's Mom and I are old friends and thanks to Facebook we have been reunited. We have known each other for a long time. I remember when they moved to town so many years ago. She is good people, as is her whole family. Please stop by and make her feel welcome! Too bad I couldn't find that picture with her in the duck costume and me in the pastel overalls circa 1986, now that would have been funny.

Crock pot day 3 was freakin' awesome!! Roast Beef with Ginger Ale. I augmented with more gravy and red wine. Sausage Lentil Stew was not a fav. Here is the recipe:
3lb. beef roast
1/2 c. flour
2 Tbsp. veg oil
1 oz. envelope dry onion soup mix
1.61 oz. envelope dry brow gravy (I used two)
2 cups ginger ale (I added 1 cup of h20 and 1 cup of red wine)

Coat with flour
Brown in pan
Combine remaining ingredients
Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours

Will do. It sounds great, sadly I'm giving up beef though... The family menu is becoming a bland, bland thing... :(

I am loving the crock pot recipes! And it's even better that you are trying them out first! Thanks!
