Monday Roast

Have you ever wanted something, and then when you didn’t get it find that it hangs around in your head teasing and tempting you until you do something about it. Well, that’s how it was on Monday. On Sunday I had the urge to have a Sunday roast, but as we were out and about all day, it just didn’t happen. But that thought just kept niggling away at me all day on Monday – lovely roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings smothered in gravy, chunky slices of chicken and of course lovely fresh vegetables. So that was it, I left the office and hotfooted it to Sainsburys and bought all the components for the roast. As it was a Monday evening, I decided to make it easy on myself and bought bags of prepared vegetables and ready made gravy. The end result was that we didn’t eat until about 8 pm, but we ummed and aahhed our way through crispy roast spuds, cruncy kale and doughy Yorkshire puddings. It was a real treat. My husband who was not feeling too well felt much better and my itch was scratched.

I guess it just goes to show that sometimes when you get an idea in your head, the best thing to do is to just take action. It was well worth the effort.
