Wow, how the weather changes! Hot, hot! I feel for everyone who doesn’t have the option to be in the air conditioning. They say there is little to no chance of rain for weeks. I thought we would have a good productive year for all. Once again I should just not even guess.
The recipe is so easy this week.
Mushroom Crockpot Roast
4 lb. or so beef roast either chuck or rump works well
One can of cream of mushroom soup
One packet of onion soup mix
Baby carrots and chunks of potatoes
Just put the roast in your crockpot along with the vegetables, combine the soup and mix, pour over the roast and cook on low for 48 hours. It’s wonderfully tender and you don’t have to heat the house up with the oven.
I have to mention how nice the 4th of July was and how wonderful all the girls and all the volunteers did at the Exline Store. Believe me I know how hard it is.
A few quick notes on happenings —
The fair is up and going and 4-H Exline Ramblers had quite a few pies that were auctioned off and Jasmine won two blue ribbons and her pie’s brought a great amount for a pie, $50 and $25. The Exline Ramblers won the prize of a pizza party for all of the pies. This organization is such a wonderful experience for all the youths to learn so many things and responsibilities in life.
I have always been an advocate for volunteering in whatever interests you and then volunteering for community as well. I firmly believe that everyone should do their part and do something that helps no matter how little time or how small the projects are. My family has been volunteering for most of my life and my son has been doing it since he was just 2 years old and we all continue to this day and always will. Communities need this to thrive and survive. Now that we are doing the article for Exline I get to hear of more and more things that are getting done and no one expects to be paid back for anything. Maybe if the rest of the nation volunteered more, the world might be a better place.
