Crock Pot Week: Day 1

Ok so I've decided that I'm going to use my crock pot for a week straight! Today is day 1. I have made a pot roast with carrots and roasted red skinned potatoes. You can put the potatoes in with the recipe also if you'd like.
1 pot roast about 3 pounds
1 small bag of baby carrots
1/2 bag red skinned potatoes or whatever potatoes you may like
1 packet of French onion soup mix
1/2 cup water

Place the pot roast in the crock pot and pour the French onion soup mix on top. Place the carrots and potatoes on top and pour the 1/2 cup of water on top. Set the crock pot on low for 7 to 9 hours, come home from work and dinner's ready!

I usually throw the potatoes in with the pot roast, but today I made them a different way.
I cut up the potatoes and coated them in olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. I put the oven on 425 degrees for 25 minutes. This temperature cooked the potatoes and left them nice and crispy!

Hope you all enjoy!
