My number one comfort food? My mother's pot roast.
Whether I was sick or sad, or celebrating a birthday when my mother asked what I would like her to make, my answer was almost always the same: pot roast.
My mother's pot roast is also a favorite of two of my daughters.
When Margaux had her first child, I remember having two pot roasts simmering on the stove at the same time one for dinner that evening and one for the freezer, so she wouldn't have to cook every night.
In addition to being simple, this dish is very tasty, and perfect for company.
