When we have a family roast, I don't do the cooking. We don't have them very often; usually just for special occasions or if we invite people over. My favourite is mutton as long as it is cooked just right.
We usually have them on special occasions, or if the family come over. Nothing brings a family round the table than a delicious roast dinner. Our favourite is lamb or beef. They are so easy to make, and they satisfy everyone's tastes. My parents are very fussy eaters, but the whole family loves a roast with all the trimmings, and gravy.
I haven't done a roast for donkeys' years. I actually hate the mess . . .and the waiting. LOL. Pork would be my favourite and I love a roast chook. I also loathe the Aussie favourite . . roast lamb. *barf*. My brother is the same . . we blame our mother's cooking.
Yep, lamb roast crispy potato and pumpkin or that sweet potato that isn't orange and peas and mint sauce. Expensive now. But who doesn't love a roast and further, I don't think there is anything as easy as a roast. Meat in first then the vegetables, make the gravy yourself or buy one of the excellent ready made, off the shelf ones available now. If only people could carve the roast meat these days, always seems to me to be hacked. Bother.
