Pot Roast when the weather outside is in the 80's? Sure, why not. I originally posted about pot roast in November of 2008. (Recipe of the Week - Pot Roast ) I know, a winter month, but why do we relegate some of our favorite foods to certain times of the year. Pot roast falls under that comfort food category in my mind. Should we only seek out comfort foods when the weather is cold? Doesn't it taste just as good in May as it does in November?

I made pot roast Saturday, just because I felt like it. One of the benefits of making a pot roast is having leftovers to make another meal of a few days later. I was working hard on a "home project", temperature 86, humidity 86 when I found myself faced at 6 PM with a decision on dinner. Then I remembered the leftover pot roast. Bingo! Simple, deluxe diner food. I added some fries and a fresh salad from our garden. A meal Guy Fieri would be happy with. The only thing lacking from a great diner meal was the rice pudding. Ummm, maybe tomorrow.
