New England Chuck Roast

So I guess I kinda owe a few post since I really haven't done any new cooking lately. So taday I pulled out the crockpot and made New England Chuck Roast with Broccoli Ala Madrid. I'm really new to the whole roast thing, so the meat that I bought was not really that great, resulting in a not so tender chuck roast. It still tasted great, but I'll definitely buy a better roast next time I try this. Also I think I'll use vegetable broth instead of water since the vegetables in the dish became very bland. So this was definitely a do over. Here is a picture non the less. Today I also made my own meal plan (See under meal plans) with all the recipes I have been wanting to try, so hopefully there will be a few more posts this week than I managed last week. I still love paleoplan, but a lot of the recipes shows up rather often so I really wanted to try some of my own stuff.

Went for another great run in the snow today (still counts even though the roads are pretty much clear now) and topped it off by making a snow angel on my way back, sometimes it is just great to act like your 5, good for the spirit...


  1. Hi Lonnie,
    Just found your blog, amazing meal!!! I've been eating more low carb but with dairy. Love all your ideas!

  2. Hi Trixie,
    I'm glad you like my meal ideas, who said low carb had to be boring. Tell me how you like them after you have actually made them ;)

  3. Well, haven't made any of them yet. I'll keep you posted. I sure could use some easy meal ideas that I can pack in a cooler for work. I'm a sales rep and on the road all day. Salads are getting boring, any thoughts?

  4. I normally bring leftovers for lunch the next day. Most of the things still taste fantastic cold, so I normally don't event bother heating the dishes up.
