Sunday Pot Roast

Monday bloody Mondayyyy!

Wrong day? Woops, my bad.

For some reason that song has been stuck in my head for about 2 weeks now. Everytime I hear, or even think about the word Sunday that chorus line immediately pops into my head.

I suppose it could be worse though, I mean, it is a good song.

This past Sunday was pretty uneventful for me. I really did…. nothing pretty much. Yeah. I slept in, stayed in my pajamas and watched movies all day. Typical white girl day.

I suppose I earned it somewhat though, this past week was filled with tests and stress, then Saturday I went running, hiked over at the Greenbelt, and then went to the gym to finish off my day. Byebye calories!

So I treated myself to being lazy, watching chick flicks, and tossing this roast into the oven and smelling it’s intoxicating deliciousness roast all day.

I can’t really take full credit for this one, it’s one of my mother’s very heavily guided recipes. Thanks mom!
