No matter what time of day you have it, is this every woman's nemesis? I can count on the fingers of one hand, the years I have not cooked C. Dinner in 43 years of marriage. I have cooked turkey, beef, goose, I have done brilliant meals, less than (too many G&T's!) and OK adequate whatever - I still deserved a medal as it is a lot of hard work however you look at it. One year the sister in law went to book in at the local B&B and decided to have a little lie down while my Yorkies overcooked and I fumed, one year it took about 4 hours extra as the oven thermostat had packed up without my realising, one year I overcooked the goose (dry and crispy didn't come close) we had gone out f or Christmas morning drinks - fatal!! and each year I have thought why is it such a big deal as it is just a *Sunday roast *(writ large) No?
We have some serious foodies with us in our group of 11 (plus the little boys ) this year in the shape of DD3 and SIL, other SIL is a veggie expert as his father was a market gardener, DH is not uncritical and the 2 DGSS would probably rather have pizza. Today I tried out a recipe from Riverford in an attempt to be original with the brussel sprouts. Has anybody else tried Riverford roasted sprouts?
Trust me - DON'T. I like sprouts and these were inedible - so thank goodness I tried it out on DH first! I also tried a Lidl 3 Bird roast as so many people recommend them and was underwhelmed. DD3 says why not a quail each (I quail at the thought) or why not beef? In an attempt to please everybody do I risk pleasing nobody?
As Fagin says in "Oliver!" I think I'd better think it out again.
