Sunday Dinner to Marvelous Monday

Yesterday Mike, Marci, Ella & Addie joined us for Sunday dinner. This is always a first choice when I ask for suggestions. I love it because it is soooo easy. They love it because it's pretty much ready when we walk in the door after church...
Menu: Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Green Beans, Tossed Green Salad and Rolls.

I've been making roast this way forever and I'm sure most of you do as well. I don't even have an actual recipe.

This is pretty much it:
Crock Pot Roast
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Lipton Onion Soup

I usually use 3 cans of soup when I'm planning to feed a crowd. I mix the Cream of Mushroom soup and the Lipton Onion Soup Mix in the crock pot first and then add the roast. Just start it as early as possible and let it cook on low to medium (depending on your crockpot) all day.

Ella and Nana always sit at the end of the table together.

Miss Addie was very focused using her little fork.

Afterwards we went to a Stake Music Fireside where Hope's little Vocal Group sang
"I Stand All Amazed" in harmony. I was amazed!
It was a great weekend! I even got to talk to both Mack and Kayley for awhile.
Head on Over to Pineapple Hill's Marvelous Monday and check out the new giveaway!

I make a very similar roast and it is such a good stand by for Sunday dinners!
Marci's little ones are so cute!

My mom used to make roasts like that. I forgot all about it. I'm definitely giving it a try!
