Pot Roast and Onions



Weekends and weather that bring a chill to the bone bring about dinners like this one was.  While it wasn’t freezing cold by any normal February standards in New York, it was still chilly and the wind cut right through you.  When it’s cold outside I think a lot of us love to have a crockpot meal going slowly all day long, filling the house with delicious aromas and making us look forward to dinner time while we laze around the house under comforters with books (or Kindle).
