I always loved my Mom's pot roast. She would cook it all afternoon and the house would smell so good when we came home from school, we couldn't wait until dinner time. Since I have always worked, I found a way to get ALMOST the same meal but in a slow cooker. It doesn't have my momma's touch but its as close as I can get. Here is an internet pic of what it looks like.
