Five Ingredient Fridays...Come Join The Fun!!!!

I am very excited to announce that starting Friday, Paiges' Place will be hosting a new blog carnival, 'Five Ingredient Fridays.'

Here's the story:
When my Husband and I first got married, I ran out and bought a ton of cookbooks. Some of my favorites were: Make It In the Microwave, 5 Ingredients or Less, One Pot Wonders, and of course, anything having to do with 30 Minutes or Less. Ralph used to tell everyone that I never made anything that took more than 5 ingredients and 30 seconds to make. They all laughed, but really, I did enjoy simple and quick dinners. With children, pets, work, Husbands, community service, etc., we can all use a little help in the kitchen.

So, starting Friday, please come visit and share your favorite 5 ingredient or less recipes. I will be choosing a 'winner' every week that will be announced the following Friday and the winner will receive a small prize from me. The 'winner' will be randomly selected from all participants for that week.

THE RULES:
  • ~All recipes must include 5 ingredients, or less. But, you do not have to count water, salt and pepper, or other common seasonings in your 5.
  • ~Please be sure to link to your post in Mister Linky and not the main page of your blog.
  • ~Please mention and link back to this blog in your post.
  • ~Please visit other posters' blogs and leave lots of comment love. We all love comments, don't we?

I hope to have lots of participants. Let's all share our easy, quick and simple favorites.

See you Friday!!!

French Dips

4 lb roast (arm or rump or whatever you have)
1 envelop dry onion soup mix
1 can beef broth
1 can Pepsi or Coke
as much or as little seasoning (of your choice) as you'd like

6-8 French Rolls
Cheese of your choice optional (we like Provolone)

First 4 ingr. in crock pot for 6-8 hrs until done. Shred or slice and pile on toasted rolls. Use the broth for dipping and enjoy!

Sorry, I guess I jumped the gun. :)

That's ok!!! I'll enter your recipe for this Friday. Come share another one, if you like, or just leave a comment for me so I remember.

That sounds delicious, by the way.

Hello! I'm interested in adding my "5 ingredients or less recipe", but I'm not completely sure that I understand the directions. You said to: “ Please be sure to link to your post in Mister Linky and not the main page of your blog" What does that mean? I'm so sorry for any trouble! I'm not the best with computers. If you'd rather, you can answer by commenting on my blog if you have the time. Thank-you so much! Again, I'm sorry for any trouble this will be!
God Bless,
Kelsey
