Rob was disappointed not to get a Sunday roast at his Mum's yesterday so once the day was done I made a half-arsed, one-pot roast and it was easy and tasty. I put a small joint of pork (yes, from Sainsbury's but the butchers are shut on Mondays and least it wasTaste the Difference, Outdoor Reared) in the oven on highest for 30 minutes. Turned down the heat and added par-boiled potatoes and parsnips, some baby carrots and a splash of olive oil and cooked for another 30 minutes. Then I added a handful of unpeeled garlic cloves and some of mum's dried oregano and finished it off for another 30 minutes and got good crackling and potatoes that were part-crunchy, part-sticky.
A quick red wine gravy and dinner was on the table just in time for the second part of Corrie. And blimey, how exciting was it! Poor Clare!
