    This sounds yummy! Although, for some reason, I just cannot make a good pot roast. No matter what recipe I try, it never turns out! I'll have to give this recipe to my husband to make! He's the pot roast maker in this house!

    Marti, thanks for stopping by my blog today and thanks for the comment!

    I love the idea off the ranch mix in there. Couldn't be any easier. It's finally cool enough around here that I'm craving comfort food like this!
