Make your man smile!

When you analyze it carefully, it's rather simple to make our men happy. Yeah, maybe they'd like us to be thinner, work out more, or even start a money making venture out of the home. But they know by now that's those things are somewhat unlikely.
I propose an easier solution.
Cook meat.
Really. They love it. And it's easy. And it doesn't require any time on the treadmill or lost sleep.
So give it a try.
Here's our favorite.

Famous Pot Roast

Any type of roast - I usually get whatever is a good deal. Actually two or three of them.
1 package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Honestly, the generic kind works just as well.
2 cans of Campbell's Golden Mushroom condensed soup
Baby carrots
Peeled and chunked potatoes
(Onions and celery are good, too, but the Coach isn't a big fan)

First thing in the morning, or after you get the kids off to school and breakfast cleared, wash the roast and trim any excess fat. I cut mine into big pieces so it fits nicely in the crock pot.
Place the meat in your crockpot and sprinkle with the soup mix.
Pour soup over the top and turn onto high.

Sometime around lunch, add the vegetables and turn down to low.

If you really feel like earning some points, the afternoon is a great time to bake some whole wheat bread.

Then all you have to do is put the roast and veggies on a platter, slice the bread, and steam some green beans in the microwave.

He'll love you.

I promise.

If not, I'll come eat it for him.

Okay, I'm making this today, right now in fact. I just came back to check in the order that you put things in. Because I live by rules. Thanks.
