One of the best comfort meals and easy meals for winter is using the crock-pot. My grandma used to make the best pot roast and for some reason I have never made it on my own. She passed away but I know she would be proud of this one. 

It is so easy to make, pot roast in the crock pot.

Literally you just brown the roast a bit in a pan, get it in the crock pot. Put a pack of onion soup and one cup of water, add your potatoes, carrots, onion and celery and cook for 8-10 hours on low... and boom dinner is done. No wonder single men love crock pots!
