This past weekend we did take in the Van Norman and Friends Stock Horse Challenge, and Horse Sale. After promising the Cow Boss I WOULD NOT buy a horse.....
He is a 2013 Playgun baby. If you follow horse blood lines at all, he goes back to Freckles Playboy and Doc O'Lena on the top side, and Doc Tari on the bottom with some Chex thrown in somewhere. He's a cute little guy, and is registered as a Gray, so fingers crossed he will change. Looking at his face I think he might. But when you see all of him.....
TR is finally thinking he likes school, but mom isn't sold on his teacher and has some reservations and concerns about how things are going. I've had a few sleepless nights and a tension headache you wouldn't believe these last few days. I'm hoping to meet with the principal in the next day or two to get things fixed. Not sure what the out come will be, but I am trying to be optimistic we will get things fixed and he will have a good year where he is successful and enjoys it!
For today's Meat Eater Monday, I would like to share with you a great crockpot recipe that I got from my mom. The great thing about crockpot recipes is that you can easily convert them to oven recipes if you don't have a crockpot, and the thing I like is that they are so convenient for these long fall days shipping, pregging, or processing cows! I have had grand intentions of using my crockpot more on these days I am teaching in the evenings as well.
Work Person's Pot Roast
1 Roast, can be any size as long as it fits in your pan or crockpot, and beef or lamb
1 pkg. Lipton Onion Soup Mix
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 can Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Section of Fresh Garlic
Place roast in the center of a large sheet of aluminum foil (if using the oven), or directly in the crockpot (I use crockpot liners because they make clean up so much easier!). Cut slits into the roast and push in cloves of garlic. Pour soup over roast and Worcestershire. Sprinkle with dry soup mix. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Seal in foil (if using oven). Bake at 250* (for oven) or on low (if using the crockpot) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The roast literally falls apart and has a great flavor.
