Slow Cooker Cowboy Pot Roast

Slow Cooker Cowboy Pot Roast - Chew Nibble Nosh

Back to school, back to crazy, back to my assignment as a personal Uber for my kids.  Everything has kicked back into gear here and we are officially back in the swing.  During the craziest nights, I rely heavily on my slow cooker.  I have a ton of slow cooker recipes on this blog, with good reason.  I use it a lot.  I remember a time when I rarely used my slow cooker at all, and it sat collecting dust in my pantry.  No more!  I break it out at least once a week.  And you should too!  It makes dinner time a whole lot easier.

Slow Cooker Italian Style Pot Roast

Yep.  We have officially reached what I like to refer to as the “Pot Roast Weather” time of year.  When there’s a chill in the air, and my toes are cold, there’s nothing better than a cozy, warm plate of comfort food to make the world right again.

This is an Italian inspired spin on traditional pot roast that my family really enjoyed, and the fact that it is a simple slow cooker meal helped me to enjoy it even more.

Sunday Pot Roast

There’s just something about a good old-fashioned, slow cooked pot roast that makes me smile.  It’s not fancy food, by any means, but it’s comforting and cozy, and we needed a little bit of that yesterday.  For some reason, I’ve been craving pot roast lately.  I think it’s my inner calendar at work.  It’s November, so my brain thinks it’s time to turn to comfort food.  I had been thinking all week about how I wanted to make a pot roast for dinner on Sunday, but did I make it to the grocery store before Sunday rolled around?  No.
