3 Meals for 4 People from 1 Roast

Even though it sounds like me, I honestly did not try to make 3 meals out of this roast (and 2 of my 4 people are under age 5).

But a week ago, I put a beef roast in the crockpot with potatoes, mushrooms, onions, and pretty baby carrots (as in not-cut-out-of-big-ones - REAL baby carrots). So we had a dignified Sunday dinner.

Then I used those leftover vegetables, a few pieces of roast, and gravy to make shepherd's pie a few nights later.

And I still had a chunk of roast left.

So I turned to Mennonite Country Style and made "All-Purpose Barbeque Sauce." And also made whole wheat sandwich buns.

We ate our sandwiches with oven sweet potato fries and pepper cabbage. Everyone was very happy. . . .

Looks delicious! I'm glad to hear that you've joined the blogging world. I wish I had more time to craft like you, but am having to put it on the back burner right now w/ unpacking and all. I'll definitely be back to see what new thing you're creating :).

....And thanks for the recipe tips. Our bbq beef turned out great with your modifications. DH (smirk) had two enormous sandwiches. We had sauteed kale as our go-with. PITNS (pain in the neck son) drowned his in Worcestershire sauce and then proceeded to gag and grimace his way through his serving.
