Tasty Tuesday: Pulled Beef Sammiches

 I’ve been using this recipe for beef sandwiches for a while now. It’s easy and delicious. We generally do not dip, just deli buns, beef, provolone cheese tossed under the broiler for a bit. 

This last week, I forgot to buy the French onion soup mix so here’s what I did instead. I lined the crockpot (if you aren’t using liners, go get some (aff links incoming)), put in a whole frozen beef English roast fat cap up, sprinkled with salt and pepper, added 4 cups of water, added two teaspoons each of Better than Bouillon beef and onion. Put it on low for 8-10 hours, occasionally stopping by and stirring the liquid and spooning it on top of the meat. When you’re ready to eat, pull the roast out put it on a sheet pan with a rim and use two forks to shred the meat, removing fat and anything tough looking. Put the meat back into the liquid. The turn on your broiler, make the sammich but putting in the meat, some cheese on top and then under the broiler until they’re all melty. You can serve the juice on the side or not. Either way, it’s delicious. I hope you enjoy!

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
