They are gorgeous on a table, as a centerpiece for a special meal. My mom made one for Thanksgiving one year, and it was great.

I avoided making roasts for a long time because I thought they were difficult. Once I realized how easy they really are, there's been so stopping me! I've been trying to come up with something different for tonight so I think I might make this. Thanks, Yum!
