(Chicken, Potatoes, Carrots & Green Beans, Cauliflower Cheese & Garlic Gravy.)
There are 3 things I remember about roast dinners when I was a kid.
1. The wonderful smell of boiling cauliflower that filled the house.
2. Crispy chicken skin, salty & still warm.
3. And when MD was doing the carving of the joint he would cut off little bits of the meat and put them on the edge of the chopping board for the ‘little mouse’ (Me) to come and take while he wasn’t looking, before exclaming;
“Pat, that little mouse has been in again!”
(I play the same game with MS, and he gets just as excited as I used to.)
I asked MS what he thought was the best thing about a roast dinner and he said;
“That it’s chicken and I can use my fingers.”
Just for the record, he can use a knife & fork.
