Unfortunately, school is officially in full swing and my days are getting longer and busier! Once things get more hectic, I start making more and more meals in my crockpot. I love love love crockpot meals. I’s so nice to come home to warm cooked meal after a long day.
One day this week I made a pot roast in the crockpot and it turned out perfect. It’s so quick and easy to put together and it’s a tasty meal – especially when it’s a little chilly outside. I’m not sure why I associate pot roast with cold weather, maybe because it reminds of of beef stew. Either way, this is a great meal to plan on making whenever you know you’re not going to have time to make a yummy dinner!
