|Pot roast with vegetables.|
This is not a Semi-Homemade Recipe from Sandra Lee of Food Network fame, but all my idea. Our son-in-law who spent his childhood in England is fond of pot roast and usually I make a pot roast from scratch. However, I discovered a fully cooked Morton's of Omaha beef pot roast at Trader Joe's that works well when you want a pot roast dinner in a hurry. I served this once to Anthony, never told him it hadn't been cooked from scratch, and he raved about it. I try to keep one of these in the fridge or freezer in case I have unexpected guests.

This morning I rounded up the vegetables I had on hand, potatoes, carrots, onions, and picked up a rutabaga and a parsnip from the grocery store.
|Cooking the vegetables and adding seasoning.|
|Heating the pot roast that has been cut into chunks.|
|Add vegetables to pot roast and let simmer until vegetables are done.|
|Ready to eat.|
Add a salad and some hot rolls and dinner is ready in less than an hour.
Disclaimer: I am getting no kickback, not even a free pot roast, from Trader Joe's.
