Pot Roast

As promised, it is now time to discuss pot roast. Mmmm delicious pot roast.

I used a recipe that my dearest, darling mom gave me. It's a recipe for the crock pot, so it requires very little stress and worry. Here you go:

3 potatoes, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3-4 pound pot roast
1/2 cup water

-Put veggies in cooker.
-Stir in salt and pepper.
-Add roast and water.
-Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours.

Easy peasy!! Here's a tip from me to you: use a slow cooker liner (Reynolds makes them). It will save you a huge headache when you clean up after dinner. I promise. Now, I did make a couple of alterations to this recipe this most recent time making it. I had six of those small red potatoes, so I cut those into small chunks. As for carrots, I had some from my garden so I used a handful of those (they were small and stubby and I'm not sure how many I used). Also, I used a smaller roast than it calls for. This is just because it was only going to be for me and Boyfriend. The one I used was closer to 2.25 pounds. 

Make this soon! It will be awesome and since we're coming into colder weather, a roast like this will be a perfect choice.
