fried eggs!

Just on toast in sandwich form...for dinner. Yummy. Always sounds good when nothing else does. Toss on some cheese for fun if you want, but it doesn't need it.

Green bean overload from CSA. Need ideas (no freezing, please!)

I don't have any awesome recipes for just green beans, except the ever popular green bean casserole, but you have probably eaten tons of that already (I would! Though if you haven't tried it yet, make it with Cream of Mushroom Soup with Roasted Garlic and it gives it an even tastier flavor!) I love green beans in stir fry because they keep their snap. Also, they go really well in any pasta casserole that you throw together, I added them in the other night when I had nothing planned and just tossed some things together with pasta, they add a new flavor that's surprisingly tasty!

Help me with my pot roast please!

I use the simplest recipe for pot roast I have ever seen, I got it from my mom. All you need is an arm or shoulder roast, baby carrots, potatoes (I use baby red skin potatoes with the skins on), and onion cut into sixths or eighths so they are in big peels, and a couple of cloves of garlic. For the gravy, just Lipton Onion packets and Cream of Mushrooms Soup, a 1 to 1 ratio. Mix the soup and pour it over everything else. The more gravy you want, the more soup and onion soup you use, usually 2 of each does the trick for me with about a 2-3 pound roast. I usually put the veggies down as a bed. I use the Cream of Mushroom Soup with Roasted Garlic because I love garlic. Just put it in the Crock Pot for the day. I usually turn it on high for the first 4 hours or so, stir it and turn it down to low when I come home for lunch and let it cook until dinner time. You can add a little water if you want a thinner gravy, but I haven't ever had to do that. I hope you find a recipe that works for you! Good luck!
