  1. I’ve challenged myself to use my slow cooker this year — love this pot roast! Nothing better than having a hearty supper ready and waiting 🙂

  2. I’ve been collecting crock pot recipes to make so that we don’t grab fast food as often after a long day at work. This will also warm us up on those cold nights we’ve been having lately.

    • Awesome! Slow cooker recipes are so great for afterwork. It’s so nice to know you have dinner at home that’s already warm and waiting for you!

  3. I love delicious recipes that are easy to prepare. I have all the ingredients here at home except for the pot roast! I hope to make this yummy recipe later this week. Thanks for sharing some slow cooking inspiration! 🙂
