We are pretty much all settled in! All the boxes are unpacked, pictures and curtains are hung, and grocery shopping has been done! Heath and Jesse are enjoying themselves down in Disney World, and I've been able to do everything at my own frenetic pace. I do miss them though. And TV...I miss TV.
I won't be able to get cable hooked up until sometime tomorrow, so I had to reactivate my Netflix acct so I could stream movies and not go completely insane in the silence. I'm one of those people who has the TV on all day, whether they're watching it or not. I just like the background noise. For instance right now, I'm 'watching' Futurama. I find Bender's voice to be soothing ;)
Since I'm on my own for a little longer, I'm digging into my drafts folder for the next week or so of posts. Cooking for one suuuucccckkkks. Lots of frozen dinners in my freezer right now. I made these sliders shortly before we left Charleston and they were really, really good. And super easy. That Creamy Chipotle Sauce is great. Plus it's always nice to have a dinner that cooks itself :)

Source: Adapted from Six Sisters Stuff
1 3-4 lb beef roast
1 cup water
1 cup salsa
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope Italian dressing mix
1 envelope Au Jus mix
Creamy Chipotle Sauce:
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tablespoon chili sauce
2 teaspoon creamy horseradish sauce
1. Whisk together water, salsa and seasoning packets in a medium bowl. Place roast in a greased slow cooker. Pour seasoning mixture over roast. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours (or high for 4-5 hours).
2. In a small bowl mix together ingredients for the chipotle sauce. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
3. Cut each roll in half and place on a baking sheet. Place a slice of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of each roll. Place sheet in oven and broil on low for 1-2 minutes or until edges of the rolls are golden and cheese has melted. Set aside.
4. Place a spoonful of shredded beef on top of each roll with Swiss cheese on it. Spread chipotle sauce on the top half of each roll and assemble sandwiches.
