Garlic and Tomatoes, two of my favorite foods, are known to have Cancer Fighting properties, you can read more about their awesomeness and other foods that may help to reduce the risk of Breast and other kinds of cancers here. For me, that’s an added bonus , I just love the way they taste.. whether it’s roasted, baked, fresh, raw, sauteed… I could go on and on. My mom has actually asked me if I’m capable of cooking without garlic. Ummm yes, but only if I have too 😉
This Southwestern Pot Roast is chock full of tomatoes and garlic and all kinds of AMAZINGLY yummy ingredients. Nathan has declared this his new favorite and the best Roast that I’ve ever made.
It was simple to make, CHOCK full of flavors and my house smelled amazing while it was cooking.
