Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Pot Roast

main dish, beef, crockpot

2 lb roast

3 each onion; peeled and quartered
4 each carrots; cut into 2 length
1/2 cup water

I, too, love knowing that my dinner is already cooking ~- even on days that I don't work (outside the home, that is!). I have fallen into the trap of making two recipes over and over. One or the other is always simmering when out-of-town guests are expected. (My husband's family is notorious for showing up later than expected. Crock pot meals are fabulous for times when you don't know when dinner will be served!) Put the veggies on the bottom and the meat on top. Season meat with salt and pepper. Pour water over all. Simmer all of the above on low all day. Sometimes I add an envelope of onion soup mix or a small can of whole tomatoes for a variation. The meat falls apart and is wonderful!
