One of the things Misty and I love to do is sit around and look through cookbooks, blogs, Pinterest, and our own recipe collection to come up with a great menu. This menu represents all those things. We have been making each one of these recipes for many years. They're definitely recipes that will be passed down to the next generation. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

👩🏻🍳 Menu Advice
No matter when you make this menu I have a couple of general tips. FIRST, my advice is to make the roast and the potatoes from scratch. SECOND, don't skip making the cake. It will make you famous. 😉 Even better, bake and freeze up to a month ahead, but don't ganache it until the day of serving.
- For the vegetables buy a quality frozen brand and cook them carefully. Overcooking always produces mushy vegetables. Toss in some butter, salt, and pepper.
- Purchase ready to bake biscuits. In my experience either refrigerated or frozen will do.
👨👩👧👧 Tips For a Crowd
- Pot Roast: Make sure not to overcrowd your slow cooker. It’s better to borrow one from a friend in order to have enough space. Aim for the meat to be done an hour before serving. Then you can remove the roasts, separate them into chunks while the sauce thickens, and put them back in on keep warm until time to serve.
- Red Skinned Mashed Potatoes: Use a really large pot. Or split them between two pots. When I make for 20+ people I use a stock pot that is 16 quarts. Plenty of water is one of the secrets to keeping the potatoes from becoming gummy.
- Corn and/or Green Beans: Again, don’t overcrowd the pan. A little bit of a broken record here.
- Cream biscuits: Make ahead and place in the freezer. After a short bake in the oven they're done.
