Ready after church Pot Roast Dinner

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by Paulcm

There is nothing more satisfying then having dinner ready for you when you walk in the door from church. My kids are begging for food before we even get home, so by the time they change their clothes I have the table set and ready to eat. Add a salad and LOTS of biscuits and you have a meal that will keep you full all day. WARNING you may need a nap after this meal!!!! The season mix is a scaled down version of Copycat Lipton's Onion Soup Mix

This is odd. I cooked a roast yesterday to be ready after church and liked it so much I went searching for a recipe with the same ingredients. This is it. I added carrots and did not add the bouillon but that's minor. Very good. This is a recipe I would treat as a base and add red wine or a little tomato paste to for variety.
