Slow Cooker Chuck Roast

Good afternoon bloggers! It's been a few days since I've come around. I was occupied with a beast of a challenge. Sadly, it wasn't a cooking challenge either. Actually, I was writing a business plan. I'm an up and coming photographer . Well, our meal today is a celebration for a job well done! I'm not just talking about my business plan. I'm talking about your kids getting amazing grades in school, or that job promotion you deserved. This celebration is for anyone and everyone. It's a job well done for being the best darn person you can be! Now, let's get into the kitchen and make some food!
