I'm right in there with you amy, a big chuck roast in the slow cooker with potatos, carrots and onions. I was debating on whether or not to add one of the two packages of mushrooms I bought yesterday, after reading your post I think I will. That will be something different for me and add a different texture to the meal.

DH said he'll be home for dinner tonight, just not sure how early, so I'm going to start a batch of marinara soon and will just cook some pasta whenever he does make it through the door. Salad for him and broccoli for dd and me.

Go for it. I add about half the shrooms in the beginning & half at the end of cooking time, so they are not all smooshy. I seared the beef, cut little slits throughout & inserted peeled cloves of garlic. Never tried the French Onion soup and wine in the mix. Can't wait to see how it turns out. If I had some bacon, I'd throw that in too - sort of a cross between bourgignon & carbonade. If I have time, gonna look for my parslied-walnut dumpling recipe & add them toward the end. Looking forward to some hot apple pie as well.
