*Classic French Dip*

I had one of those days where I could not think of anything for dinner for the week. Even looking at recipes, there was nothing appetizing. I was looking through the mail and some Arby’s coupons were in front of me. I said to my boyfriend, “wow that looks so good.” He smartly replied, “Lets make it!” I could not argue with that. So we went to the store winging this whole dinner idea. Once there, we found some roast beef and pork shoulder, campbell’s soups, cheese, bread and to fill our craving; frozen Arby’s curly fries. Yes they make these…go buy some! We got home and planned this dinner for the next night. Since we would be slow cooking the meat, we needed extra time. The next day, I turned the slow cooker on and added the meat, some spices to taste and the three soups. Eight hours later, the aroma throughout the house was mouth watering. We conjured up our french dips and they were delicious! This recipe satisfied our craving and having the Arby’s curly fries were a bonus!
