Crock pot days

One of my favorite meals growing up was mom putting roast in the crock pot. Crock pot meals are the best thing ever, especially for bigger families.

Yesterday was a raining chilly day so I thought it would be perfect to slow cook one of our favorite meals.

3lbs pot roast (boneless beef bottom round roast or chunk)
6 yolkon (or red) potatos halved
small bag of carrots 
one stalk of celery cut small
1 can of cream of mushroom 
1 package of lipton's dry onion soup mixed with one cup of water 
Salt and pepper to taste 
2 garlic cloves 

It should produce its own gravy but if you'd like thicker (like us) 1hr to 1/2 hour before serving whisk a 1/2 cup of flour and water into the pot stir leaving no chunks

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours 

I serve with dinner crescent rolls and
 sometimes over mashed potatoes leaving out the yukon 


& this was a nice perk after dinner, she offered I accepted, isn't she gorgeous? 

Speaking of rain I pulled out my new Hunters, when I saw they had purple and grey this year I died. My two favorite colors together <3 


  1. I've been loving the heck out of my crock pot lately too! Must be a pregnant thing ;)

  2. Yum yum yum to both to roast and the Hunters. I get so excited when it rains because you get to do all sorts of cozy things like this.

  3. That looks amazing! Mine never turns out, so I am going to try your recipe. :)

  4. LOVE my crock pot too!! I will have to save this recipe!! :)

  5. This is one of my husband's favorite meals! But... not mine :(
    Me and my brother both hate it now. lol

  6. Crock pots are amazing! Love this recipe! thanks for sharing
