Sunday Dinner

Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to do a dish in the slow cooker. I love the slower cooker,
you can put your dinner in the
cooker in the morning
and if you are like me, get the
house cleaned, then the rest of
the day is for crafting:-)

I like making something on a Sunday
 morning, then make other dishes out
of the left overs for the rest of the week.

Today I am making a pork shoulder,
 Boston butt.


1. 5lb pork butt
2. 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
3. 1 can cream of celery soup
4. 1 can chicken stock
5. 1 package of beef aujus' mix
( or 1 can beef broth)
6. 2 lg sweet onion chopped lg
7. 6 stalks of celery chopped small
8. 2 cups baby carrots (optional)
9. 3 lg potatoes chopped (optional)
10. 5 or 6 garlic cloves

You can put any kind of veggies that you like.

In large slow cooker add soups, chicken stock,
aujus' mix, onions, celery, and any other veggies you desire.
Rinse the pork butt off and pat dry.
On the side with the fat make small slits
in the top and stuff the garlic in side.
Place roast, fat side up in the cooker,
and season with salt and pepper.
( be careful with the salt, the soups
have lots of salt in them already)
Place on medium (275 to 300) and
cook 4 to 5 hours
or until the roast is fall off the bone tender.

I added a few peaches on the top for
a little sweet taste.

Make the gravy out of sauce in cooker.
Pour sauce in pan, strain out veggies, put to the side. Bring to light boil,
mix 1/2 cup cold water with 3 Tbs. of
corn starch, pour in sauce. Bring
back to boil to thicken.
Serve veggies on the side, whip
up some mashed potatoes or
Mac and cheese and a salad, then ring the dinner bell. Yum!!! :)

As an added goodie today I am going
to share my sister in law, Tina's recipe for

"Bagel Cheese Dip"

1. 1 jar Old English Cheese
2. 2 8oz packages of cream cheese
3.1 bunch of green onions chopped
4. milk, just enough to make smooth

In bowl mix cheeses together until smooth.
Add onions and just enough milk to
make it smooth and creamy.

If you like it more cheesy, use an extra
jar of Old English Cheese, or add some
cheddar cheese powder.
You can get this at
They have all kinds of great items.

Serve with pieces of your favorite bagels,
or raw veggies. It is also great heated
up and served over broccoli.

You can also make a great pork sandwich.
Just use some of the pork you just made.
Toast up a hoagie bun, place cheese dip on the bun and add pork and onions from
 the dinner you just made.
Thank you Tina!!

I hope I at least made you hungry!

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great Sunday.
