Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, well one of them. I enjoy watching the colorful
leaves fall slowly to the ground and the crisp cool air that lets you know that winter is upon us.
One of my favorite fall dinners is the slow cooker beef roast that’s easy to make and leave alone til your ready to serve later.
