A roast dinner -always one of the most exciting meals to eat – is never complete without an assortment of sides and accompaniments.
This is a summary of the recipes for dishes that I tend to include when I cook a roast. I have posted these recipes previously but several people have asked if I could include a summary of them together – and I am most happy to oblige.

Perfect timing for this type of post, when the weather is still so miserable outside and nothing beats a hearty dinner with “all the sides” – those pigs in blankets are screaming my name….
