Recipe: Pot Roast with Yellow Rice

Lately in our house we have been experimenting with different things in the kitchen.  I am in love with Cast Iron cookware and my mother in law has recently been looking into the health benefits of turmeric.  Today I blended them together in a delicious dinner.  I made a pot roast in my cast iron pan and also made yellow rice.  Here are the recipes for them, I’m lazy tonight and don’t want to figure out the nutrition.
