Monday's Meal

In the winter I love to use my crockpot (ok, let's face it I love using my crockpot all year long). My friend Brandy is always talking about the delicious roast she cooks up in her crockpot. A pot roast always makes me think of home. My mom would frequently make one on Sundays. It would have potatoes, onions and carrots simmering in it's own gravy. Delish! Here's a crockpot version. You can add vegetables to it as you like to make it a one pot feast.

Crockpot pot roast.
2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (or golden mushroom)
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 1/4 cups water
5 1/2 pounds pot roast

In a slow cooker, mix the mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water. Place pot roast in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture. Cook on low setting for 8 to 9 hours (or on high for 3-4 hours).
