Slow Cooker Pot Roast, Cheddar Cauliflower Mash...and Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Toasted Walnuts & Ricotta
We finally saw the sunshine today and it was such a welcome sight! This evening I was in the mood to bake chocolate chip cookies...so I made a batch of my Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Toasted Walnuts & Ricotta since I didn't have much to do to prepare dinner since our dinner was cooked in the crock pot. I put a small pot roast in the crock pot when I came home at lunch time today, along with some onions, mushrooms and carrots -- I added some red wine (Pinot Noir), Celtic salt, Chipotle Chile Powder, fresh parsley and covered it to cook all afternoon. I served it alongside Cheddar Cauliflower Mash. It was really nice to come home to dinner already cooked (except for the cauliflower). Below are a couple pictures of our dinner as well as the delicious cookies I made. The recipe for the cookies is embedded in the link above. Photographed alongside the cookies, check out the beautiful flowers my youngest son sent me at work today to get an early start on Mother's Day! Thank you so much my grown up "baby boy" -- they are absolutely beautiful!!! Without question, the greatest gifts in my life are my 3 children and I love them more than words could ever say. Being a Mom is the single most important job I have ever had or will ever have and I hope you all know how proud I am of each and every one of you. Check out the pictures below. Enjoy!
