Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef

Slow Cooker Barboca Beef 036

On Friday when I got off work at noon, I was craving Chipotle's Barbacoa Beef rice bowls.  I was going to head on over there and get one, but then I thought why? I can just make them at home and have Barbacoa beef for a week! It was almost meant to be because beef roast was on sale and so was corn for their famous corn salsa that I just love. I put the beef in the slow cooker and went off to take some pics of the Blue Angels. They're in town this weekend doing shows and a friend and I went to ...

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. Mine wasn't so great. On our way to taking my husband to the airport, we discovered my car had a flat tire.

      You will not miss the fat in these garlic mashed potatoes, I swear! The potatoes cook on low for 6 to 7 hours and by the time the potatoes are done they are so tender.  The touch of a fork made them fall apart instantly. The original recipe called for parmesan cheese and sour cream and since my husband is lactose intolerant, I made these potatoes dairy free. I really REALLY wanted to put the dairy in them, but once you mashed them with a potato masher, or used some beaters to m ...
