Sunday roast

OH is a traditionalist where Sunday roasts are concerned. He loves roast potatoes (grin). Since we got a halogen oven, roasts have become quicker to do. Also, I'm partial to roasted butternut squash (thanks to my vegetarian friend Helen). Doing it the 'cheating way? Slice off a round from the butternut squash and cut into 'fingers' as you might do potatoes (chips).
Later on this afternoon the pork joint will go in the halogen oven. Potatoes for roasting will be par-boiled in the microwave. As it's only a small joint, the upper rack will go over it and take the baking tray for potatoes and butternut squash.

Joy of Diary of a teacher posted a delicious sounding recipe for tear n share bread. Maybe not today, but sometime soon I intend to have a go. If I'm lucky, I might find I have some strong bread flour in stock...

I've heard very good things about halogen ovens. You obviously get on with yours very well indeed.

Your Sunday Roast sounds delish. I love butternut squash.
