Lorelei....two years ago

This was one of her first trips to a creek....she totally loved it. I got a lot of good shots of her... this was one of my favorites.  One can see the change in her between this and the photo her mom took of her in the previous post.
***************
I am sitting here trying to decide if I should put something in the crockpot....I have something in mind...something we love. It is a recipe a friend made up.   Nothing set in granite as far as amounts.  We take a chuck roast....I have made it with other cuts but love a nice chuck roast the best.  I cut it into chunks that go easily into the crock pot.

Then, add garlic powder to taste, about a teaspoon of crushed red peppers, and Italian seasonings...add what you think you will like.  With me that is probably about half a teaspoon...maybe a little more.  I usually put this on around midnight on Lo Heat and it cooks at least 12 hours....till it just falls apart with a fork.  After it is done, I shred it and we always have Italian bread, or sometimes Roger likes it over a baked potato.

We all love this....though I have had one person tell me they tried it and did not like it.  But I just felt they had to do something wrong....LOL
***********
Roger's computer gave up the ghost last week....I think the hard drive is shot so we have a new laptop coming for him.  The old computer is not that old....still may get a hard drive and see if we can get it to going again.  Just have a lot of questions about doing it. 

And I sat down and finally got some battings ordered.  Now I have got to get busy and make backings.  I would like to get some of these quilt tops made into finished quilts.  Not that I will ever catch up.  I have at least a dozen tops that I am not even worrying about.

L looks so sweet and full of joy, but she always does and this really shows how much she has matured, from baby to little girl. i don't own a crockpot, but i had one when my kids were little. and loved it.
are you sure it is the hard drive? my son just fixed his own, it would not come on so he goolged and googled and figured out it was the 12.00 power source which he replaced.

It's a strong shot of Lorelei with the water background. The crock pot dish sounds very good.

Lorelei is growing fast! Such a sweet face and she looks so full of joy in this photo.

I have a crockpot, but never seem to think to use it. Your chuck roast sounds good.

Oh my! That grow up so fast. From sweet baby face to sweet little girl face. She is a happy one.

We have some venison to throw in the crock pot--maybe I will follow your recipe. MB

Lorelei is growing up fast but she still looks like Lorelei. ;))

EW! Sorry Roger's laptop has bit the dust!

Cute photo of Lorelei... Hard to believe that that was 2 yrs ago.. Kids grow up too fast.

Your post roast in the crockpot sounds GREAT.. That has always been one of my favorite meals. I would add some veggies --and they would also taste SO good --cooked with the meat in the crockpot... YUM...

Sorry about your hubby's computer... That's a bummer.

Hugs,
Betsy

I remember your posts from when she was first going to the creek, it seems like just yesterday! This shredded roast looks so good. You don't put any liquid in?

How they change year to year! I have my son's high school grad pic and now his college grad pic! OMG! He looked so young in his high school pic. Now all grown up! UGH! I AM NOT OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE A 23 year old! :) I will now call him my brother! LOL! :) Chuck roast is the way to go in a crock pot! DE-LISH!

It amazes me how much our twin granddaughters have changed in the past couple months. Your Lorelei is no longer a baby; she's a beautiful young girl.

Carletta said...

Our girls are growing up fast Rose - too fast!
Lily starts school this year. I can hardly believe she's going to kindergarten. Her features have changed and she's looking like a little girl not a toddler anymore. I'm sure you see those changes in Lorelei.
Your meat dish sounds wonderful. I make something similar in the pressure cooker.

Dee said...

her smile has only gotten brighter :) You should have a couple of quilting bee party's to get some of the quilts finished. :)

Judy said...

I just want to squeeze her she's so darn cute :)

Susan said...

She is just so precious Rose! That roast sounds so good. Course anything that isn't cereal sounds good right now too! :))

Mary said...
