Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches -- Culinary Project Pinterest

Monday has rolled around again;  I am a bit more willing to lift my head off the pillow when I remember that it's Project Pinterest day, and I know that during a toddler nap I can check out the great projects blog friends have taken on.

If you aren't playing yet, jump on board!  It's gentle pressure to go beyond the pinning and actually cook, bake, and make, and that, my friends, is golden.

I've got four, yes four, Pinterest recipes under my belt. One includes alcohol, hence I didn't get to taste it; the second is a simple, can-be-prepared-ahead dip; the third is meh, ok, but the fourth is a Crock Pot phenom that might just be the best sandwich to slap your taste buds with a handful of awesome. 
Interested? 

A few Sundays ago I hosted a Thirty-One party for a sweet friend, and in my food presentation "themed" it a football gathering. The Texans were coming on during the party after all! I also attempted to bribe my friends to come with promises of something alcoholic. At least 5 pregnant women showed up. Let's just say J enjoyed some fruity drink ending to his afternoon of football. 

This sangria, toted at "the best sangria ever" on Pinterest, apparently was a lot less sangria and more so a tasty fruity drink. I "forced" it upon every non-pregnant attendee for a taste test! They said it was good, but definitely not sangria. 


As it turns out I hadn't pinned all of them, but simply searched through Pinterest for them, so I re-searched, pinned, and here you have them. I wanted to keep it simply so I went with this tortilla roll-up recipe  and a corn dip I had a baby shower earlier this summer.  The tortilla roll-ups were ok, and I think serving them with salsa would have upped their value a bit, but we enjoyed the corn dip and had plenty to bring over to our football loving neighbors who were in their garage man cave for the afternoon. 

But this my friends, is the real gem. AP, if you are pinning--pin this one! The picture isn't so pretty, but this recipe was by far the most amazing Crock Pot one we've found to date. I made this French Dip sandwich recipe and will make it again and again. J is requesting it weekly. Incredibly easy, incredibly tasty, this recipe is made for week nights, weekends, and even parties and holidays. Serve it on fresh pistolettes, and you've got the perfect game watching main dish. Promise me you'll try this one. 


Thanks again AP for such a fun Monday link-up!
