crockpotEveryone needs a slow-cooker. If you don’t have one, run out and get one ASAP! They save so much time and make everything taste amazing!

Today’s Wikiwiki tip: Cook a beef pot roast for dinner tonight, and turn it into beef vegetable soup tomorrow. 



  • 3 or 4 lbs. beef roast
  • 1/2 lb. carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 lb. celery, chopped
  • 3 baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup water

Put carrots, celery and 1/2 of the potatoes on the bottom of the pot. Add the roast. Sprinkle meat with the onion soup mix. Top with the remaining potatoes. Pour water over all. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.




  • leftover beef and veggies
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes, with liquid
  • 1 small bag frozen mixed veggies
  • 1 14.5 ounce can beef broth

Put everything in crock-pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2 hours.
