no_fast_food_250I’m SOOOO tired of fast food! Due to our house being on the market, Matt’s new job/our new church that’s 30 minutes away from home and our CRAZY busy summer, I can honestly say that I haven’t cooked in MONTHS! Sure, we’ve eaten at home here and there…but, a REAL meal at home hasn’t happened in SO long!! It’s embarrassing, REALLY!

But, last week, I got my hiney in gear and banned Fast Food! And, it was fabulous! Pinterest gave me SO many great new recipes to try, and my family was so thankful!

The first one we tried was a little spin on Pot Roast. I LOVE pot roast, but this had a little extra “zing” that made it even better. So…give it a try! I’m pretty sure you’ll love it right out of the crock pot and leftover for the next few days!
