  • Make a roast? Last time I made a roast we ate it for a week. We had BBQ roast beef sandwiches, roast, carrots and potatoes etc.

  • I agree with the roast can have sliced roast with the veggies you cook along with the roast the for the first serving.

    the leftovers:

    BBQ sandwiches, as theutilitarian said
    veggie beef soup
    beef, rice and mushroom casserole
    shred some and make burritos with beans and cheese
    Shred and stuff into a baked potato with some cheese

  • I have to agree with the ladies that said a roast. On top of what they said, you can shred the beef, roll it in corn tortillas and you have taquitos!

  • Get a pork shoulder, the biggest you can find that will fit into your crock pot. Put it in the crock pot, pour in a little chicken stock, top it with a packet of lipton onion soup mix. Cover, and cook on low for about 10 hours. You CAN add baby carrots, a quartered onion, and baby red potatoes and have pork roast for dinner. Then I take the remaining pork roast, shred it, and put it in a glass dish in the fridge. The next day, we put it back in the crock pot, heat it up, and make pulled pork sandwiches. There's usually still leftovers the next day, so we put it in a pan and add some taco seasoning, heat it up and serve it in corn tortillas with sliced avocado, diced onions, peppers, tomatoes, shredded cheddar, and lettuce. Yummy.

  • Lentil soup is good for that but not so much in this weather. I make a big batch and then gussy it up different ways. The last time I made it we ate it for a couple of days then froze the rest. We just had some two nights ago. I added a cup of chickpeas (cooked a couple of weeks back and frozen in baggies) and some cinnamon to make it a little Moroccan. I still have some in the freezer which I'm going to doctor up with some kidney beans and curry powder, maybe even put a dab of mango chutney on top, for Indian soup.

  • Roast a large turkey.
    Then you can make:
    Turkey dinner with potatoes and vegetables
    Turkey pot pie
    Cold turkey sandwiches
    Turkey soup
    Turkey salad buns
    Turkey stew
    Turkey tacos
