“We build statues out of snow, and weep to see them melt.” ~ Walter Scott

Well, whadayaknow.  It snowed!!!

Once my husband was home safe and sound – it was wonderful!!! A glorious, perfect fluffy, white snow that didn’t melt in 2 hours. Such a rare, rare occurrence.

Unfortunately, that snow brought a lot of heartache for many people an hour or so away. My heart goes out to those people and families who were stranded or separated from one another.

Since we were snowed in, I’m glad I had the items on hand to make the a new crock pot recipe I had been wanting to try.

And no, it did not need any milk or bread. 🙂

Mississippi Chuck Roast

(adapted from A Perfectly Lovely Ordinary Day)

  • 1 chuck roast
  • 1 stick of salted butter
  • 1 package of dry ranch dressing
  • 1 package of dry au jus gravy mix
  • 5 pepperocini peppers (in a jar) – more if they are small, I used 8-9
  • 1 teaspoon pepperocini pepper juice

Place roast in crock pot.

Cover with ranch dressing, then gravy mix.

Place stick of butter on top of roast, along with the peppers.

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Shred with 2 forks in the crock pot. Serve with a slotted spoon to drain excess gravy.

This was beyond delicious! My husband said I need never make a different type roast again!
