I honestly feel like I am really ready for marriage now that I mastered the art of cooking a pot roast in the crock pot. I think there is some kind of rule about this, right? Maybe an unspoken rule. Regardless, I felt like a a freakin domestic goddess for whipping this up anyways. I even felt cute as I was buying the beef at our local grocers deli like “oh don’t mind me, just cooking up a lovely pot roast for my fiancé, I know I am really quite the Martha Stewart and all”. Actually, forget Martha Stewart. I would rather be compared to Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. She’s more my style.
So any who, this pot roast isn’t the only thing preparing me for marriage. I have been deep diving into some pretty good books and turning to the Lord and married couples I respect and admire. I don’t want you to think I am basing my preparedness for marriage by my ability to cook a pot roast…although that still seems like a pretty justified reason to get hitched. Speaking of, we moved our wedding up 9 months and I am PUMPED! We both couldn’t wait any longer. More on that in a recap post though! For now, just enjoy this simple pot roast recipe! We enjoyed our pot roast while decorating for Christmas with The Santa Clause playing in the background. <3
