Crock Pot - Pot Roast & Noodles
What could be better on a cold, rainy day than pot roast ... and who doesn't love noodles!!! Of course, you can have the pot roast on toast or biscuits if you prefer. This is one of those dishes that I really like with sauteed apples or homemade applesauce on the side.
