The best roast dinners are centered around:
well done beef in a roast is a crime!
actually what do i care? go for your lives.
like the fact that really, yorkies are only sposed to be with beef. and so on. but yes, this is meat-centric
Amazing, and they came with a little tub of roast potatoes on the side.
lots of places in the north do them with sausages and onion gravy in. it's insanely good.
toad in the hole is awesome
but if its some batter-y thing accompanied by gravy, meat and potatoes, its going in my mouth.
and i'm a proper farmland hick who's mum used to cook pheasant and grouse, so I'd know.
that explains, at least, why you'd allow it to disappear into the generic wild fowl category.
a roast duck? like a normal roast but with a duck in?
get a couple of ducks, and give 'em a good roasting (plenty of basting, plus a half-time rest) and enjoy yourself a grade A roast.
Any is is bloody delicious. Fat soaked delicious. Orange sauce!
I am such a failure.
and i will be vindicated, don't worry
or the snow coming down in june
i've centred quite a few things round them in the past.
please god never explain it
i was most certainly not talking about sex tho.
it just tastes of minerals. And you're basically chewing on rubber.
there i said it
makes you a contender for 'most annoying dinner guest on the face of the earth'
a laugh a minute.
ive never had to eat a beef joint at one though which might explain it
i feel persecuted. Maybe i should start using smileys more.
wouldn't trust you around children.
But I couldn't have it every week.
If I could only eat one roast meat the rest of my life it would be beef.
And a beef gravy trumps all.
it would be chicken.
Best bit about roast chicken: picking the carcass.
but let's lay our cards on the table. it's the roast equivalent of missionary position sex under the covers with the lights off.
and I come out with some seriously shit analogies.
Missionary can be amazing.
Just like a roast chicken dinner.
Also...I agree with other comments, this was an awful analogy. Thanks.
nom nom nom
the leftover contents of a roast, in pie.
^to be sung to the tune of the trio advert
pork is great if cooked well but the best bit about it is obvs the crackling
All can be great. All can be a bit rubbish.
pork is never great in a roast, and in that i include pork belly and pork crackling.
It's fine, and if I have it in front of me I'll always finish it, but...I don't know man. It's just not a convenient eating meat.
Feeling a bit low about pork today
were far too fatty. Not my favourite.
Stick to pig in blankets for the pork side of a roast dinner. Leave the main dish to chicken.
this isnt about a roast but i'm going for it anyway.
in paris i had a pork steak. it was practically raw, well it WAS raw, just seared on each side. it was one of the best meals i've ever eaten. i felt sick for ages afterwards but i was happy. so therefore, pork CAN be good.
i still prefer lamb, but there you go.
but at the time i was like, 'if its good enough for the french, its good enough for me'.
I sometimes wonder about you Meths!
Pork belly sucks the life out of me.
TMI, soz x
but a hot roast pork bap* with stuffing, apple sauce and crackling is one of the greatest things anyone can ever eat.
*breadcake/roll/cob/it's just fucking bread
Pork is offensively average
it's wank soup in here and you two are the croutons
maybe i'll sing about it at open mic you FUCKING WOWZER
I can cook chicken pretty well myself, so if I go out for a roast I'll order something I'm less good at making.
in order to make you look like you're gay.
cover the roast potatoes in goose fat before you cook them. make sure the meat is nice and i get a big helping (no, i don't need to know that you gave my mum a big helping).
there we go, the rest of the roast matters less, if you've sorted those two things i will be happy.
also, i agree with CrispinAlexander - roast chicken is boring even if it is really nice. like a digestive biscuit. nice, but if there's an alternative i'll probably take it.
chicken can have loads of flavour, you've just got to cook and season it right. add loads of fresh herbs and bosh a load of garlic in with it. lush
my point is that an amazing roast beef/lamb/pork/goose/pheasant is more interesting to me than an amazing roast chicken
i'd take an amazing roast chicken over any roast that was merely average but i don't think that's what we're talking about here.
i wouldn't expect thrills from any roasted meat. however, i fucking love a roast dinner because it's tasty and meaty and leaves me feeling all woozy from too much carbs. it's the food equivalent of a lie-in.
or a nice nut roast
no wonder you're always so bloody depressed
(in terms of ferocity)
i was so sure I knew how to set up one of those 'this'ing traps.
to call someone a massive lanky cunt, what's the point any more? :(
I really want to roast that chicken tonight?
I feel like tonight ought to be given over to eating Med food and snoking shisha in leafy surroundings.
over what you do in the evening
smoking and snorting.
I wasn't sure if shisha was some sort of sushi or sushami or whatever derivative that oeuff had been 'smoking' with some hickory or somesuch to give it some fancy flavour (and that she had done a typo)
-what to look for in a joint
Haha, I said joint
