Good recipe for a roast in the slow cooker?

So i've had my slow cooker for over a year now (wedding gift) and i've never used it. I realize it cant be hard. i get the basics of it. veggies, meat, fluid (such as water or broth) of some kind. and let it cook for a day. ...But does anyone have any tips or anything? I just bought a roast and i plan on throwing in the slow cooker in a few days.
