Fellow Bloggers on BlogExplosion

I have had a space for rent on my blog through BlogExplosion. Everytime I try to accept an offer, I get an error message "An error occured while trying to accept the offer. Please try again." I want everyone to know I'm not snubbing them and I have notified BlogExplosion of the problem

I've seen other people mention this problem too. I'm betting it has something to do with the server switch.

Do you have any good recipes for a french dip? I'm trying one tonight via the slow cooker.

I have the same problem as do others. So far there's no solution....... And Blogexplosion is NOT responding to any question at the moment (at least that's my experience......). Too bad......

I haven't had a reply yet. Hopefully they get it fixed soon.

For French dip, I do a roast seasoned with Worchestersire sauce, onions, Montreal steak spice, garlic and a little water roasted slow on low heat. When the roast is ready, I remove from the oven let rest 10 minutes then slice thin. The slices are placed on a toasted French roll and served with the au jus in individual dipping bowls. Enjoy!

About the french dip, thanks for the tip.

Do you cook the au jus with the roast or make it separately? I did it with the roast and thought it was just too fatty.
