Got the in laws coming for Sunday roast tomorrow. I've cooked loads of times for my family but never the inlaws so feel a bit pressured!
Do you have any tips or secrets?
I always do bovril roast potatoes so will do those which I doubt they've had before.
Im going to make leek and potato soup today so they can either have that to start or a prawn cocktail!
Ive got pork and lamb so need to sort what veg! help!!!

Ooo I love a roast! I can't cook one for toffee though as I can't get it all timed to finsh together , you obviously need Yorkshire puddings, stuffing and we always have horse raddish or mint sauce regardless of what meat we have. What's bovril potatoes?

I do my mash first thing then put in a glass bowl covered with cling film, blanche the veg to keep the colour then they only need 15 minutes in the steamer before serving. definitely need yorkshires and stuffing!! Hmm I'm looking forward to tomorrow now.

I often pre-make my roast potatoes - as in I make them earlier in the week then stick them in the freezer. You can cook straight from frozen for about 30 minutes. They are yummy as they go extra crispy on the inside but stay fluffy inside.

Honey roasted carrots and parsnips are yummy, don't put honey on at the beginning though, it will burn x

Cp - you mix two table spoons bovril with table spoon of butter, part boil potatoes, drain and leave to cool for 10minutes. Brush coat the potatoes with the bovril mix and then roast as normal. Yummmmmmy!
