Cola Pot Roast I
Made this last night with some changes. It was so delicious, meat totally fell apart. Delicious. I left out celery, sauteed sliced baby bella mushrooms & put aside. I sauteed the onion & 3 cloves rough chopped garlic, then removed and deglazed the pan with 1/4 cup red wine. Put salt, pepper & garlic powder on 2.5 lb. chuck roast, browned in pan on medium heat 8 mins per side. I used a 28 oz. can Italian tomatoes (drained & rough chopped), added 3 Tbsp. tomato paste, salt & pepper, garlic salt, lots of dried parsley & a little ceyanne pepper. Added a whole can of diet Coke to the liquid mix along with the sauteed veggies. In my crock pot, I put the roast, poured the liquid & veggies over. Cooked on high for 5 hours. Removed the meat and thickened with a cornstarch/water mixture. It was divine.

Very salty -- too much bacon. Taste was ok at first, but next day it was to salty. Took a lot of time to make all that bacon. I would have tried the bacon-bit trick next time. The mixture didn't make an attractive presentation. Made for a big super bowl party and only 2 people tried it and they didn't come back for 2nd dips.

Asparagus Appetizers
I have also been making these for years. I cut the pieces into 3rds to make party-nibbling a little easier. I use melted butter which I brush on top of the pieces just before baking (it uses less butter this way). I've had people rave about them who actually don't like blue cheese. A definite party favorite !!
