{Brown Family Pot Roast}


You are in for a very special treat today! Not only am I thrilled to be a contributor over on Vivint’s new site, The Neighborhood, kicking off with my take on throwing the perfect progressive dinner. I am also sharing the perfect dish to serve, my mother’s recipe for her famous pot roast here on jentertaining! I have had dreams about this pot roast, it is that good. It is so easy to make and the perfect meal to share with friends. Over on The Neighborhood, it is jam packed with fun and creative ideas that help us all get out and not just say Hi Neighbor, but Let’s Neighbor! Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think.
