Easter Sunday Roast by Ben

On our first national holiday in our flat together, Ben and I decided to do a proper roast. Despite our hours of drooling over cooking shows every weekend, we hadn't actually cooked one together in our flat. In light of the fact that in a few weeks we were meant to be cooking a roast for some of his family (by 'we', I mean 'he'), when I spotted a discounted pork shoulder joint with apple and stuffing at our local Waitrose, we went for it.

After a few slicks of oil, a sprinkle of rosemary and salt, and surrounded by some red onions, the pork went into the oven for around 45 minutes for the crackling to cook. Then the heat was turned down and cooked for another hour and a half.

Hands up, we have to admit that the mash, apple sauce, gravy and veg was not of our own making. But hey. We all have to start somewhere (and be lazy on a bank holiday weekend).

That, with a glass of sauvignon blanc.. ooph.
