Rich's Grandma, Peggy Duda, was one of the most amazing people to walk this planet! She passed away last summer, and sadly didn't get to see us move into our house- a place she would have loved. So in her honor, I cooked our first meal in our new house last night as a tribute to her. There was nothing better than Grandma Duda's Pot Roast, and so I knew it would be the perfect first meal to have in Casa McNally.
And boy it was!
