Pot roast is one of our favorite meals so it was easy to choose this recipe.  I had never heard of cream of onion soup and could not find it anywhere around here so I changed the recipe up a bit.  I used a can of French onion soup and left out the cream of celery altogether.  It worked out great and tasted delicious.  Either way, it’s a great recipe.  Adding the extra salt may be something you want to leave out since canned soup is no salty to begin with.  I really don’t think you’ll need it.

I totally forgot to take pictures until dinner was half over so they aren’t the best.  Sorry about that!  THe recipe was submitted by a cook who lives in the city next to mine!
