Dyeing eggs is really fun but doing it with a 2year old is a bit trying....and messy! Oh, well. Definitely a fun memory and a tradition that will have to continue. :-)
One of the reasons we did roast was because K really enjoys it. However, she missed her nap on Saturday and fell asleep mid bite at dinner! Sent some leftovers home with D, so hopefully she'll get to enjoy her roast!
Eye Round Roast
eye round roast - I think ours was about 5 pounds
1 can reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
1/2 envelope French onion soup mix, dry
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover the pan with aluminum foil well. This provides easy cleaning and foil to cover the roast. Place roast in a roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper "to taste" - though you won't REALLY taste it, just imagine how much you need! Sprinkle half a pack (or a whole pack based on how much you think you'll need) onion soup mix on top of the roast and "pat" it into the meat.
Mix together the soup and some water. Pour around the roast. This provides moisture and flavor. Cover with aluminum foil. Place pan in over and cook for 3 hours. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly so the juices will set. Enjoy!
