I am not a natural cook, I try really hard … but something nearly always goes wrong. I am incredibly lucky that The Husband does cook, and he is very good.
In this respect we eat well, but when it’s left to me I cheat, especially when we are pressed for time. I use frozen goods and jars with gay abandon and I don’t feel bad about it.
Roast dinners are not my friend. My biggest downfall is timings and a roast dinner has so many components. So, I cheat as much as possible – I roast the meat, no problem and prepare vegetables. BUT I buy frozen roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings and no one says a word, because they are delicious!
Aunt Bessie has dug me out of many Sunday dinner holes …
