OMG!! This was sooooo good there aren't even words to describe it! The maple sugar was awesome, and it was the first time I had ever used it in a recipe (I'll be sure to use it again). I used only a 2 2/3 lb roast which was more than enough for my family due to there only being two who can eat that much of it right now. I made this with I'mPat's Mashed Potatoes #178186, and they were a perfect match. This will absolutely be made in my home again and again! Thank you. Made for the Newest Zaar Tag 08/10.
