Classic Pot Roast with Rosemary

Classic Pot Roast with Rosemary

This is a very traditional pot roast. It comes out moist and full of flavor. Really what more says comfort on a cold Autumn day more than a hearty meal that brings us back to childhood days of raking leaves?

Because this meal takes quite a few hours to make, this is an ideal time to do meditation in the kitchen. Set the altar aglow with candles and remind yourself of the sacred space and the meal that is to come.
