The Entrée That Reminds Us of Home
Whether or not you grew up eating pot roast on Sunday afternoons, it's hard to dismiss the braised-meat dish's reputation for instilling feelings of nostalgia. If that leads to a conversation about your most treasured memories, or any of the other personal topics on this list, great...but even if it doesn't, you can't argue with the deliciousness of this slow-cooked roast. It's also nearly impossible to screw up, and you can make the dish well ahead of time (it even tastes better a day later).
