Pot Roast in the Instant Pot

Pot Roast in the Instant Pot

Hellooooo! How you doing baby booboo boo boo? Oh, are we not close enough for me to call you that? That’s fair.

I’m so pumped for this recipe! I have always kind of hated pot roast and I don’t hate this one! It’s so damn easy thanks to the instant pot. And you can add whatever veggies you want to it! I know peas aren’t considered paleo, but I had them from the holidays and I didn’t want them to go to waste! And yes, this can be made in the crockpot if you don’t have an instant pot! I have no idea how long it would have to cook though. Because I didn’t make it in a crockpot. Duh.

So guess what? Just yesterday I got back to town to my little puppy and right now I’m leaving him, heading to the airpot to go to Austin. I’m so pumped to go to Austin because AUSTIN IS THE BEST, but I’m so sad to leave Jackson. He’s just the best and I was already gone for 3 days and now I’ll be gone for 4 and then after a few days back at home, I’ll be gone for 5 more days. Insert painful cry face emoji. But a couples vacation was needed so that’s what we are planning to do! We rented an awesome airbnb, we are going to eat at all my favorite places AND hopefully some new restaurants, listen to some live music, and who knows what else. If you have any recommendations, let me know! We are down to do anything!

Want to see what I’m packing?! No? OK!! My girlfriend and I are planning to get a couple workouts in so I’m bringing plenty of activewear so I have no excuse to skip a workout. And it’s suppose to be in the mid 70’s every single day so lots of jeans and comfy tops!

But what else should we do? Any place we should go? Restaurant we should try? I always use other people’s recommendations, especially since I’ve been to Austin so many times and have tried so many restaurants already! Always looking for something new!
