Pot roast, chicken cacciatore, or chicken enchilada casserole?
I'm headed to the grocery store and can't decide what to make for dinner. I'm leaning towards pot roast. Any other ideas?

2. The weather does demand pot roast today, huh?
And thank you for the chocolate tip. I need a very small chocolate cake. I don't want to have a whole one on had all week, but I'm also craving chocolate cake.

3. Although, for best results, I'd recommend keeping the pot roast and

chocolate separate, and letting them meet in your stomach, as far as not mattering what form it takes goes.

6. Yea, my gut says pot roast, and DU'ers seem to agree.
My boxer snuggled up with me on the couch. I guess it's time to get him up and fed so that I can get to the grocery store and get the pot roast going. Better to go early to pick out the meat, especially on a Sunday.

15. My first thought was chicken cacciatore, because it has been decades
since I've had any, but after that, pot roast won out.

18. the chicken caccitore does sound good but, pot roast
is just so homey, doncha think. A comfort food and today just calls for the comforts of home. A good book, a small fire, a nice merlot....

about Maine for the last couple of days.

19. I haven't had cacciatore since I was a kid, but I remember loving it.
And I came across a crockpot recipe for it last night. Still sounds good, but the pot roast is winning out. Maybe I'll try the cacciatore recipe next Sunday (my one real cooking day.)

12. Anyone ever made crockpot pot roast with sweet potatoes?
I'm thinking of mixing it up and using sweet potatoes instead of regular, white potatoes.

Anyone ever tried it?

14. Well, they are healthier than regular baking potatoes.
I'm just wondering how it will taste? Think they will do alright in a crockpot for the next 6 hours?

16. dunno about 6 hours, their consistency is different from a
white potato and therefore the cooking time should vary...maybe put them in a little later...say about half that time? :shrug:


I am in new territory here

17. Scary. I'm not sure I want to experiment with my annual pot roast.
I don't make it very often and I know the white potatoe is tried and true.

21. Actually, I just like my sweet potatoes baked with salt.
I don't like to put any brown sugar, etc, with them. I cut them up into "fry" size portions, lightly brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and bake for 30 min at 350 degrees. Then a little more salt when they come out and a little side of brown gravy. Yummy.

25. Mmmm.....my favorite dish.
But, I went with the Pot Roast this week. I only make it once a year or so. King Ranch casserole is about once a month!

26. I'm back from the store an the pot roast is already cooking.
I went with regular white potatoes. Didn't want to mess with perfection.

What an easy dish. Cut up potatoes and put them in crock pot. Brown the roast in a pan, put in crock pot. Add carrots, onions (I prefer pearl onions). Add beef broth. Turn on crock pot. Wait until dinner, then feast.
