Here in Texas it’s all about iced tea. We drink it every night at dinner and usually at lunch, too. It’s definitely the unofficial drink of Texas. We tend to prefer unsweet tea at our home, but a nice tall glass of sweet tea every once in a while is definitely a treat.
When I’m in a rush to grab something quick for dinner, I’ll grab a jug of tea from Walmart at the same time. Milo’s® Famous Sweet Tea is one we recently started buying, and it’s now at Walmart! Right now you can get it on rollback for 2/$5!
Just the other day, I picked up a jug of Milo’s® Famous Sweet Tea and a jug of Milo’s® Unsweet Tea. You can click here to Locate Milo’s Tea.
A lot of times when I need an easy dinner for my family, I’ll put a chuck roast in the slow cooker with some carrots and some beefy onion soup mix. My family doesn’t really like cooked carrots that are sweet. They prefer a more savory flavor, and the soup mix always does the trick.
The other day I had the chuck roast defrosted and ready for the slow cooker, but I had no carrots. I was going to be away from home too long to add them to the slow cooker, so I couldn’t cook them with the roast. I knew I couldn’t just skip them because the carrots are my kids’ favorite part of the entire meal when I cook a roast.
Here’s what I did. When the roast was ready to come out, I just steamed the savory carrots in the microwave for 7 minutes in beefy onion soup mix. No one could tell they weren’t cooked along with the roast!
Savory steamed carrots are the perfect side dish.
