Thought I’d share some recipes today.  Finally the election is over and I’m trying to get back to my real work  🙂  But I’m so tired and wore out, I can’t get anything done.  I do have one load of laundry in the machine and need to do dishes.  So tired.

First recipe is a favourite of mine.  I don’t make it often because of the wackos non-tomato family members.

Tomato Pot Roast

5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

3 lg carrots, cut in half or quarters

1 onion, finely chopped

2 stalks celery, same as carrots

28oz tomatoes

2 cans tomato paste

2 t basil, oregano, and rosemary

1 t salt and pepper

4 lb blade roast

I mix everything (except beef) together in a bowl.  Place roast in crockpot, then pour ‘sauce’ over top.  Cook 8 hours on low.

Growing up in Bowmanville, autumn meant apple time.  In fact, next weekend is Apple Fest.  You should check it out if you are nearby.  There aren’t too many orchards up here, but I can get Algoma apples at No Frills and they are from ‘home’.  In fact, some of their orchards are down the road from my Grandma’s house.

Here’s an easy apple recipe:

Apple Crisp

1 c brown sugar                     3/4 c flour

3/4 c rolled oats                    1 t cinnamon and nutmeg

1/2 c butter

Grease a 9×9 inch pan.  Peel and slice apples into pan.  Make crumbs (I often melt the butter to make it easier).  Sprinkle over sliced apples.

Bake 375F for 30-35 minutes.
