I like how you threw in the info on what you purchased/$ along with the recipe. It was helpful in seeing how you snatch up the steals for future recipes. This one sounds yummy and sooo easy.

I need to add this site to my google reader! I keep forgetting, but honestly, I’m not even keeping up with the ones on there… Time to purge, maybe?

Anyhoo — WHY haven’t I ever thought to save the juices from a roast?? You are getting some good deals. How lean was that hamburger, I was wondering? My 93% ground I just got this Wednesday at the commissary was I think $2/lb. (I’m not so good at remembering prices as you) so $1.50 is very good I think. Also, I never add water to my roast in the crockpot: I get the cheapest chuck roast I can find and the fat makes all the juices it needs, and it tastes de-lish. Just so ya know.

p.s. did rdc get his cup from melissa via us and his backpack on the bus okay?!

I found your blog, linking from a friends blog and I really like your meals from what I have read. What cut of roast do you buy? Every time I try to make a roast, 3/4 of the time it turns out tough no matter how long I cook it. Any suggestions on the cut will be greatly appreciated.
