Beating the heat!

It's been so hot lately and I haven't cooked (much) all week long. It's made a big difference in keeping the temperature of the house down but I'm ready for some cooked food. I'm sure the kids are too.

This morning I pulled a big roast (my husband got it for less than half price, I think, it was $5) out of the freezer, put it in the crock pot with some onions and seasonings, and plugged the crock pot up out on the back porch!

The pot is actually almost within reaching distance of where I am sitting right now and I can smell it.

After while I'm going to put some potatoes in it. We should be able to eat three meals from it. We had one of these roasts a couple of weeks ago and we ate on it for three meals. Delicious!

I just came across your blog, and I am definitely going to try your fruit popsicle recipe very soon.
I would just like to recommend changing the link color for your website. It doesn't contrast well with the background color, making it difficult to read.

Welcome to the Foodie Blog Roll! I did crockpot cooking today as well. It was way to hot to heat up the kitchen. I love my crockpot during the summer months.
