 Hey all my fans who love to cook (and my not-so-much-cooks who are yelling "Help! Gimme some ideas!"), just wanted to share part of the meal I'm making for tonight.  Feel free to mimic!  :)

I found a pot roast at a decent price today.  It was about 2 pounds worth.  

Here's how I prepared it:  First, I fried 3 pieces of bacon slowly so that they would be crispy, then I set them aside in a paper towel.  Next, I turned up the temp of the bacon skillet to medium-high, and seared each side of the roast in the bacon grease (about 30-60 seconds on each side).  I chopped up an onion and 3 TBSP butter and put a third of it in the middle of my crockpot, placing the roast on top (and then pouring the leftover bacon grease over it).  The other two-thirds of the onion and butter went right on top of the roast.  I set my crockpot to HIGH.

 After that, I peeled and chopped a few small potatoes and a few carrots, and placed them around the roast.  Two hours from now, I'll turn the roast over.  Then, an hour later (maybe), it should be ready for cutting into chunks or slices.  After I return those slices to the crockpot to finish cooking for 30 to 60 minutes, we should have a pretty delicious pot roast!

Last time I made pot roast this way, I had a bigger roast and more time for cooking, so I did it on LOW and for longer (maybe 7 hours?).  It turned out great! 

And what about the bacon?  After it cooled, I crumbled it and stored it in the frig to use on another day for potato soup.  
Some of the bacon landed in my mouth (BAD, BAD bacon!).
