Pot Roast & Veggies

I put this in the crock pot this morning before heading out the door to work!

I cut up carrots, onion, and red potatoes this time, but you can do it with any combination of veggies. I put the veggies in the bottom of the crock pot and added 1.5 cups of beef broth. I sprinkled some garlic and wine seasoning over the veggies (I got the seasoning at The Melting Pot in our NYE gift bag). I put the chuck roast on top and sprinkled more seasoning, along with salt & pepper.

It cooks on low for about 8 hours. I have to get someone to run by the house and turn it down to the "keep warm" setting around 2-ish to avoid it getting overcooked. (Thank you, Dad, for doing this for us today!!)

It's so great to come home to a great smelling house and delicious meal, already cooked and ready to eat! :) This is also a relatively cheap meal for a whole family. You can buy chuck roast at a really great price at Sam's (package of 2 for only $11 - cook one now and freeze one for later). We had enough food to feed all 3 of us, plus Grandma & Pa Pa, and there are leftovers for sandwiches tomorrow. :)
