make this for dinner.

 this is one of my new favorite go-to meals.  
the best part is that it is finished in a matter of minutes...and it's super tasty. 
i call them french dip sandwiches...but there may be a different name for them out there. 

all you need is:
a 1-1 1/2lb roast
one packet of french onion soup mix
one can of beef broth

a loaf of french bread
mozzarella cheese 
(i used a shredded mozz/provolone blend)
 put the broth and soup mix in your crock pot...stir it around to mix it up. 
add your roast, put on the lid, set the crock pot on high and walk away for 6-8 hours.
yessss...i love having dinner technically done before lunch, right?
 30 minutes before you are ready to eat take the roast out of the crock pot and shred or slice it.
i cut mine in thirds and was able to put a third away for dinner the next day.
keep the broth in the pot on low for now.
 slice your french bread in half length wise and pile on the meat and cheese.
 wrap it all in foil and put it in a 325 oven for 25 minutes.
 get it out of the oven and slice it into individual sandwiches...i make mine about 2in wide each. 
serve with a couple of sides...i did corn and a big salad. put some of the "juice"  or au jus from the crock pot into little bowls to dip the sandwiches in...

with just the two of us eating these there were not only leftover sandwiches for lunch but the next day but i was able to use the other third of the roast...add some mashed potatoes and rolls and dinner was a cinch the next day too!

i'll be making these for years i'm sure. :)

in other news.  i just finished day six of the shred.  and i am happy to report that i am almost over all of the soreness...i can move freely and i was able to do more the the entire workout than i have been able to do to date.  

results i have seen so far:  increased endurance, more shapely arms and more firmness in my middle...especially the love handle area. :) 

i had started with 10lb weights but today i did it with 5lb ones and it seemed like a much better fit for me. :) 

and is it just me or do you expect her to say different things everyday...even if it is the same  just me?  ok...that's cool.  

how are you doing?  i am thrilled that SO many of you are suffering working hard along with me. :)

That looks absolutely amazing. I've only had 1 french dip in my life and fell in love. Well, maybe in "like" since I haven't had one since! But this looks so delicious! I'm definitely going to make these! Thanks!

I ordered that video the other day after reading your post and comments. It hasn't come yet. When it does, I may be dead. I got 30 lbs. of 4 year old baby weight to get off! haha!

I ordered the video on Monday. My husband said he'd do it with me. I might love you or hate you for this inspiration/motivation. I'll keep you posted :)

Yep between you and Chrissie, I was "moved" to order it too. We'll see if I can make it through it, or if I just sit and watch! Either way, thanks for the inspiration. I am deeply grateful ALWAYS for your inspiration. xoxo

This is one of my favorite dinners! I've never made it with the french onion soup though.

I just bought my dvd at Target tonight. It kicked my tail. My arms were shaking so bad! And I didn't even use any weights! I am looking forward to day six and being able to move.

I think I might start to watch it on mute. Her sayings might get annoying!
