Pot Roast Recipe

Hi everyone! After a month of being gone due to my life becoming so wild, I’m back! I missed you all very much and am glad to be back 🙂 In honor of November being roasting month and speaking of life getting wild, I found an amazing recipe for pot roast you can just pop in and serve, all it takes is 15 minutes of prep, perfect for everyone who has a lot going on in their lives and needs something easy to whip up. When I was a little kid, my mom scoured her family cookbook for something easy to whip up before she had to dart out the door with five other kids behind her, and so this pot roast definitely reminds me of back then. 

I hope you enjoy it, and happy roasting month! I found this amazing recipe on Allrecipes by a person named Chef John.
