What's for Dinner?

Have dinner plans yet? If not this sure was tasty and pretty dang easy!  Takes about 2 1/2 hours to cook so it was nice to start early afternoon and it was ready just in time for dinner. My friend Kelley got me a handy little cook book called 500 casseroles as a wedding gift.  I haven't really had a chance to cook out of it since I got it because almost all of the recipes are "cold weather" recipes, you know what I mean? Since yesterday was the first official day of fall Johnny and I decided to get that handy little cook book out and pick something good to eat! We decided on Easy Pot Roast with Sweet Potatoes.  Seemed like a perfect mix of Johnny and me..he likes meat and I like veggies!  We made a few changes according to what we had around the house.  Here is the recipe and the changes we made :) Enjoy!

Changes: we used russet potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. 
We added fresh green beans, onions and carrots to the pot.

At the end once you have taken most of the contents out of the dutch oven, mix 3 T water and 2 T flour in a bowl and pour into remaining juices, bring to a boil on the stove top until thickened and poor over roast and veggies!

Works out for meat and veggie lovers :)

Happy Cooking!
Love, T
