Roast #cooking #food #gf

I am trying to be a positive contributor to my family, and making dinner in the crockpot for them while I have some energy this morning.

Here’s how I do a simple roast:

I put the meat in fat side up, and salt it in honor of my mother. I add one bullion cube on either side of it at the bottom. I cut up one potato, and sprinkle it around the meat. I add garlic on top of the meat, and then later the chopped onion on top of that. Carrots go on top, with some parsley, and if we are having company (or have more kids), then I add another potato on top. I pour a ginger ale over the whole thing, and add a cup of water also. For those who like gravy, we save some juice and add corn starch or rice flour since Nathan and Five can’t have wheat flour.

How do you make your roast?


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.

  1. I use turnips or butternut squash instead of potatoes. They help thicken the juice the way a potato would, but add a little more flavor AND freeze way better than potatoes do!

    • Excellent! Thank you!

      I love turnips roasted with radishes, which become sweet when you roast them (in the oven, not the crockpot).

      Butternut squash is my FAVORITE soup ever (also my favorite gluten free grilled cheese in New York).
