      This was good! I added celery and put 4 holes to stuff garlic in the roast.

      The roast was perfect and very tasty! We had a lot of left-overs (on purpose) and the next night we made a very hearty stew with the left over meat and veggies! I will definitely make this again!

      Ahh, comfort food at it's very best! I love that this recipe is very basic and simple, and the flavors are so wonderful. My only change was actually an addition-I added a 6oz pkg of whole button mushrooms. Eating a plate of this is like cuddling up on the couch in a cozy blanket on a cold fall/winter day. Just awesome! Thanks for sharing Half Hearted Chef, made for Bargain Basement tag game and will definately make this again.
