Sunday roast all year round ?
Was having a conversation in work about said subject.I reckoned staying in and cooking Sunday Roast in the middle of summer was boring and unfair on the person slaving over the hot stove.I said it was fine on a dreary cold wet day in February .The response ? Well what will you be doing?Let me guess going for a bike ride for a change and stopping for tea and cake!How boring is that !I suppose it’s a good job we aren’t all the same .So am i in the minority ?From the people i’ve spoken to so far (non cyclists as well )it would seem not.Posted 8 years agodjgloverMember
Each sunday, in the ideal world, and it often seems to work out this way for me if I plan it properly!: I will get up at 6 and spend 3 hours with the babies (twins), then ride on the surrey hills for 4 hours, then come home cook a fantastic rib roast with all the trimmings (or something equally great) for my wife. Then get a bit drunk on a great bottle of red and roger her senseless. There really is time to do all the good things in life I find. Monday is never a great day at work following this though.Posted 8 years agoPeterPoddyMember
Roast dinners are wonderful things. Probably the best dinner therre is. In the summer, go for lamb (mint sauce, mmmmmmmm) or chicken. Pork or beef in Winter, generally, although it’s all good. I don’t get them very often as MrsPP is veggie, but when we have visitiors we go to town on it. For some reason I like having visitors…!
The food MUST be top quality. No supermarket meat – Find a good butcher, pay the price, it’s worth it!
Due to Aunt Bessy Yorkshires seem to be served with any meat.
What? Ready made Yourkshires? Are you INSANE? Rubbery abominations, the work of the devil!
It’s egg, flour, milk, and very simple to make. I could probably make some in the time it took you to open the packet.
Go and sit in a corner and think about whet you have just said. Go on!
Packet mixes and pre-prepared food? Nononononononoooooo!Posted 8 years agorogerthecatMember
Auntie Bessies are only good as a very last resort if you can’t find a rubber swimming cap first.
Mr Poddy is correct – make em from scratch and they come before the meal – old Tyke trick to fill you up so you need less of the expensive meat & veg.
Have roast every Sunday in winter, well veggie version.Posted 8 years agoCaptainMainwaringMember
Roast every Sunday evening at Mainwaring barracks. In the summer roast it on the barbie – if anything tastes even better. If it’s beef or chicken often have it with salad and new potatoes if the weather’s good. Barbie with a lid keeps it moister than an oven – even roast venison haunch is fine without marinading.
Love the cold meat for a couple of days, especially the Henry VIII impersonations when you get to the bone.Posted 8 years agoMrs ToastMember
I do a roast dinner pretty much every Sunday after a couple of hours over the Chase. Normally chicken, as it’s Mr Toast’s favourite, but occasionally lamb or beef. I only every do Yorkshire puds with beef, and stuffing with chicken. Roast parsnips and taters with everything!Posted 8 years agodon simonMember
