Pot Roast with the works Potato's, Veggies, Gravy, and a nice dessert is always a treat at my house. It also isn't that expensive to make because a cheaper cut of beef like, outside round works the best. Also very little clean up because it can be made all together in one pot. I have made it both crock pot style and roast pan style and they are both great.
As for dessert my favorite quick dessert is poached pears which is super easy to make a really impressive.
If you do your pot roast in the over they can be cook alongside of it.
Very easy simple take the number of pairs you want. Core them with a apple corer, peeled or unpeeled both work. Place a small bit of water in the bottom of a oven safe dish. Add 2tablespoons butter and brown sugar then place pears upright in dish, cover and steam until tender.
Serve them on a plate with a bit of the sauce from the bottom of the dish poured over them, I usually serve with a dollop of whip cream or a spoon of vanilla ice-cream.
Yummy my gosh I am making myself hunger.
