Easy Meal Mondays! Sunday Pot Roast

Hello Everyone!  This is the eighth installment in my series on easy and healthy meal options that Jason and I have made and love.  This recipe is adapted from 101 Things to do with a Slow Cooker By Stephanie Ashcraft and Janet Eyring.  Every once in awhile a sunday roast is the perfect things for dinner and it makes a bunch of lunches for leftovers.  When the roasts are on sale at Costco I usually get a few and freeze one for later.  I made this today.  Every time I made it it has been good, so enjoy!
