Aunt Bessie mid week roasties

Sponsored post

Like most modern parents life can be very hectic at my house with us rushing here there and everywhere with very little time to cook a meal from scratch. I know the value of a proper meal but chopping and preparing takes up far too much time. Like Margaret and Mabel in the video it would seem like a special occasion to rustle up a full roast dinner mid week:

Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes are a big favourite in our house. I love the fact that all I need to do is heat up the oven and pop them in. I can even turn the oven on before doing the school run and it's ready to cook when I get home. The children love the crispiness of the roasties and prefer them to my home cooked ones!

I will also pop in a few Yorkshire puddings (either the bake at home or the 4 minute ones). My children can eat loads of these. Yes it's easy to make your own from scratch but that makes far too much washing up!

Sometimes I also have a few other Aunt Bessie extras such as stuffing balls or other treats - but only when I have had room in the freezer (I need a bigger one!). My children aren't too adventurous on the vegetable front so cooking a one person portion of red cabbage and apple or honey roast parsnips is perfect.

When this is served up with some cold meat from earlier in the week it's a wonderful meal. It's a win all round as we all enjoy it, there is very little preparation involved and virtually no washing up! All making for a very happy mummy.

Plenty of roast potatoes were consumed whilst writing this blogpost!
