There’s no denying it -- it’s fall. We’ve tucked away our sandals and pulled out our coats. With each passing day the air gets a little bit cooler and all we want to do is get a little bit cozier. We’re heading out to the farmers market, going apple picking, and finding any excuse to come home, crank up the oven, and make something warm and comforting.
Enter the roast. There is nothing quite as cozy as a good roast sputtering away in the oven on a Sunday afternoon while you're lounging on the couch watching football or laying on the floor tackling a puzzle. Look no further then these roasts, served alongside fluffy mashed potatoes, a leafy salad, and a bottle of red, to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
