Making a Pot Roast for the Dogs

friday fail

One of my goals for Madame Deals is to keep it real. I am not perfect, nor is Amee. I am learning on this frugal adventure on a daily basis. This week I had a BIG fail. As many of you know, I have been participating in the pantry challenge. Before I started the challenge, I went shopping for meat. That is one thing we had little of in our freezer stockpile. I bought a beautiful roast. With little room in my fridge, it ended up in the bottom drawer.

Can you guess? Yes, I forgot about the roast! When the roast was discovered, it was definitely past its prime. I was more than a little heartbroken about the wasted food and money. I couldn’t just throw the roast away though. I threw the roast in the crock pot and made my dogs a gourmet meal! At least it was used!

The funny part is my husband came downstairs after I put the roast in the crock pot. He said “Yum, we are having a roast?”. Nope sorry, it is for the dogs!

    I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who has forgotten about meat and other various stuff in the freezer.
