Easy Crock Pot Beef and Veggies

A few weeks ago life was insane at my house. We were both busy with work and then over the weekend my best friend got married! I was in the wedding and had 2 guests staying at my place for the weekend as well. Thursday night was the bachelorette party, Friday the Rehearsal Dinner, and Saturday the wedding. Needless to say it was a crazy busy week and planning dinners ahead of time really paid off.

I knew I would need a hearty dinner before heading out for a night of fun with the girls on Thursday and wouldn't have a lot of time. This crockpot dinner was the perfect solution.

Line the bottom of the crockpot with red potatos (slices into quarters) onions, carrots (I used baby carrots), celery, and some garlic chunks. I placed a chunk (I have no clue how much it weighed) of chuck roast on top and added some vegetable broth that we had in the fridge.

Set the crock pot to 8 hours on low and off to work we went. When I got home I had about an hour to go on a run, get ready for the party and eat dinner. I came in from my run and the house smelled so good and I was able to eat and set the crockpot to warm (so the fiance could have some when he got home) and headed out for a night of fun.

The best part about the meal was that I had some food leftover for lunch the next day was I was sleepy and exhausted.

Hope everyone is having a great spring so far!
