I woke up today ready to cook! This morning I whipped out the crockpot to get a beef roast cooking. I added about 1/3 cup water, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 chopped onion and a BIG tablespoon of minced garlic. I put it all in the crockpot on high for about 6 hours….. or until you can shred the beef with a fork.
More on the beef later….
I have to say…. I am currently watching Rachael VS. Guy Kids Cook off while I am writing this post. This show is soooooo cute. I can not believe these kids. They are all between 10-12 years old and they have been cooking since they were about 5. Their skills in the kitchen are so impressive!
After putting the beef in the crockpot I headed over to Don’s to check on the tomato plants. I ended up coming home with another box FULL of tomatoes! I cant wait to get canning again. Next time I head to his place I promise I will remember to take pictures of his amazing gardens.
After Don’s I headed home for some lunch….
Healthy Flat Bread anyone…..
For the flat bread part of the pizza I use Joseph’s Lavash Bread
Lavash bread is so delicious and healthy for you. You can eat an entire piece for only 100 calories. I placed the lavash bread on a baking sheet, coated it with cooking spray and placed it in a 350 degree oven for about 5ish minutes…. until it starts to brown.
Then I added diced yellow and red cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of olive oil and placed it back into the oven until the cheese melted.
Once the cheese was melted I took it out of the oven and drizzled it with balsamic glaze!!
It turned out so delicious!! Next time I would add basil…. sort of forgot that 🙂 It tasted so fresh and wasn’t overly filling!
Incase you are wondering…. I found my lavash bread at Kowalski’s. So far that is the only place I have found it….. then of course since I was at Kowalski’s I had to get the mozzarella from there. They make fresh mozzarella daily!!!
After a wonderful lunch I took Maisy outside to play and then we took a nap 🙂
After a lovely nap I headed to Target….. For those of you who do not know me, Target is my FAVORITE store!!! My mom works for Target headquarters so I have grown up shopping there. I could spend a lot of time and money at Target.
While I was at Target I decided to treat myself….
According to Olives N Wine it is #treatyourselftuesday so I headed to the kitchen appliance section….
I have been eyeing the Keurig’s for a while now… so I decided what the heck…. it is treat yourself tuesday!
I cant wait to try these babies!!! I really love treat yourself tuesday 🙂 Thanks Becky for an excuse to buy the Keurig!!
After Target it was time to check on the roast…
(That pic was taken this morning when I put it in the crockpot)
When it was fork shreddable I took the meat out of the crockpot and shredded it. I discarded all of the fat and bones. Once it was shredded it was sandwich time 🙂
I bought whole wheat knot buns from kowalski’s. I split the bun in half, added some shredded meat, BBQ sauce and dill pickle slices.
The sandwiches turned out very yummy. It was a great dinner. I love a day full of cooking 🙂
Did you cook anything wonderful today?
Did you treat yourself at all today?
