Balsamic Pot Roast Recipe

Good morning and Happy Hump Day!

I am in the middle of trying to get all my recipes available to you on one page. It's a task that I didn't initially expect or think about doing, but when someone texts you asking where they can find all your recipes, you get a fire lit under your bottom to get it done. 

If this world was a perfect place, I would do at least one crock-pot recipe a week.
I love crock-pot meals because they usually make enough for left over lunches and I love the smell of dinner being ready when I get home! I don't know why I don't do them more often.Well, actually I do know... It takes planning and sometimes I don't have the time to do it before walking out the door in the morning. BUT not having to cook a meal when you get home from work is heaven. 

This recipe is now a family favorite, as everyone, kids included, ate it! That's when  you know its a winner.
I served the pot roast over a bed of brown & red rice with chopped sauteed kale. You can serve it over anything your family likes.
