Sunday Roast with Sweet Potatoes

Sunday Roast with Sweet Potatoes

If your family is like mine was, we indulged in roast every Sunday. You know, same old. Same old. Give your usual a kick with this simple twist. Just be warned. You may find it’s so fun to get out of your regular routine that other by-the-by’s will fall off kilter. Prepare to see Gramma dancing in her knickers. Or Uncle Hooster yodeling songs of yesteryear. You never know what will happen. But you can be sure it will be deeee-lish-ee-ous!
1 tsp each of:



chile powder



zest & juice of 1 orange

zest & juice of 1 lemon

Brown 1 onion and 3 sliced sweet potatoes in 1/2 c. butter. Transfer to crockpot.

Liberally salt, pepper & brown sugar a 2 lb. roast. Brown in a skillet in butter, over medium-high heat. Transfer atop veggies in crockpot. Add 2 c. water and above ingredients to pan drippings. Scrape drippings then pour over meat & veggies in crockpot.

Enjoying Our Family Meating.
But…our trip out of town is coming to a close.
These quick posts will soon be a mere memory.
Be sure to stop by next week for some serious health & strength Cupcake style…Happy 2009!
