There really is nothing like having a really hard day at work, and coming home to a dinner that is ready and a house that smells so good you almost can’t wait to eat. That happens to be my problem when I come home from work to a crock pot meal. I get home from teaching and picking up the baby at about 4:30, so that gives me about a two-hour window before dinner. That’s a lot of time to restrain myself from digging in. I sometimes even try and convince myself that there won’t be enough natural light left by the time dinner rolls around to be able to take pictures. Thank goodness the baby kept me occupied last night because this roast almost didn’t even see 6:00. It had the most incredible flavor and literally melted in my mouth. And you wouldn’t believe how easy it was…almost criminal. But that’s what I think a good crockpot meal should be, quick and easy to put together but tastes incredible. And an added bonus…this gave us plenty of leftovers for a few other dinners over the next few days. Win-Win!
