    I'm way too lazy to make roast potatoes myself these days.
    They are soooo easy though. New potatoes don't even need peeling, just a quick wash, and if small they don't need parboiling either.

    Hadn't thought of using new potatoes, that would certainly be a time saver to make them fresh.

    For me it's turkey, roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli , califlower, Yorkshire puddings , gravy ,mash and stuffing.
    Turkey/Gammon/Chicken etc etc. (all three on the same plate if possible, huge amounts)

    A sack full of roast potatoes

    LOADS of parsnips

    Carrots

    Cauliflower

    LOADS AND LOADS OF YORKSHIRES

    Insane amount of stuffing

    **** tonnes of pigs in blankets

    Enough gravy to fill a bath tub


    THAT IS A ROAST DINNER.

    I would add broccoli too, but given the VAST QUANTITIES I have specified, I'm not sure it'll fit on the plate :lolz::lolz::lolz::lolz::lolz:

    that's when you need serving dishes for the veg, I just put the meat and carbs on the plate then have the veg and yorkshire in dishes on the table, that way no plate overflow to worry about.

    Good tip. I will most definitely do that when I cook my first proper roast dinner with all the trimmings at uni.

    So far I have only made partial roast dinners. Chicken, parsnips, carrots and a few roast potatoes. Not enough to satisfy a cow.

    I think any flatmates you have will be very impressed if you cook a roast, I got some shocked faces when i moved into halls and I baked some cakes.

    I feel like the only person who has cabbage with a roast. Won't eat cauliflower or broccoli though.

    Parsnips, carrots, potatoes, peppers stuffed with rice and beans, maybe some squashes, maybe some broccoli or green beans. What's that you say? I'm forgetting something? No, I don't think I am.

    The meat is still attached to the animals, and it'll stay that way as far as I'm concerned.
