Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Thank goodness for $5 dinners! I've never roasted pumpkin seeds. Man, I've been missing out! I tried it for the first time tonight, and I can't stop eating them! :) I only used salt, and they're excellent. Enjoy the flavors of fall!

Easy Slow Cooker Roast

Easiest thing ever.

3-4 lb. beef roast
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/2 c water

Place roast into the slow cooker. Stir soup into 1/2 c water, then pour over roast. Cover; cook on low 8 hours, or until cooked through.

I shredded all of the meat, and divided it into three bags for the freezer. All of the "drippings" were poured into a bowl, then put into the fridge. The next morning I spooned off the fat, then divided the liquid into two containers for the freezer. This will all make for super easy meals later! If you want the roast that night, you can add potatoes, onions and carrots to the slow cooker before putting in the roast and soup/water.
