Did you out enough salt in it? That affects the crust
I increased the the salt from 3/4 tablespoon to a a full tablespoon. I also added ice to a pan on the lowest shelf for the extra steam. I think I need to try my bread pan next as the dough likes to creep out sideways as its proofing

Good morning all it's 9.30 am and quite chilly at the moment with ice on the bird baths but it looks like it will be another bright and sunny day later.
I've made the mistake of offering to cook a Sunday roast for my nephew because it was his birthday in the week and we couldn't go out.
I regretted it as soon as I said it, but maybe not as much he may regret eating it!:)
Have a good Sunday!

Oh heck! That means using your oven. Where will the wine go? 😂

Good evening all.
We survived the lunch - just!
The chicken, peas, Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds, were fine, but the rest of it - not so great.😞
I boiled the carrots dry but managed to salvage some that weren't burnt, (the pan is in a heck of a mess) forgot to add salt to the boiled spuds, and managed to over steam the brussels and broccoli , so it was all a bit too mushy for me.
My nephew enjoyed it - but then he doesn't have a discerning palate or many teeth left so mushy was probably good for him. He has taken the leftovers home to have another meal tomorrow. He must be a real glutton for punishment.

In my defence, I haven't cooked a roast lunch since Xmas 2018 so I must be out of practice! Not that I've ever achieved anything more than just about edible.
I can't wait for the restaurants to re open!
