Sunday roast with family!

Hello friends, happy Sunday!!!

Er, how fast is this year going?! It’s April 18th already. So basically I love roast dinners, always have (lol), so I decided to make it from scratch..well I didn’t kill the chicken, but cooked it! 2 and half hours of preparation! I actually find cooking quite theraputic, love creating my own dishes with unique ingredints and adding my own personality into a meal, whether its breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper! Or a snack! I just love good quality food, have always been picky with quality (body is a temple NB) and also if I have made it, I tend to love it even more! Unless it’s a 5* restaurant, with amazing reviews I don’t just like to eat anywhere! I have a few allergies, also annoying intolernaces, so it can be a pain when I am out and about! This is why I do prefer cooked home meals, instead of a quick meal deal from sainsburys! As geeky as this sounds, im into health and fitness and love nutritional meals! You see cooked prepped meals, I see an abudance of goodness; nutrients and all the vitamins!! Roast dinners aren’t that complicated, it’s all about timing, patience and using the correct flavours to create a yummy dish! Over the years, you learn, trial and error, what works and what doesnt for you! Some people love a quick and easy dish! Some love to prep days before. It’s all about what you love. Xtine, loves roasts

As a child, I would always request my parents to cook a roast! How very british of me (aha) I love crispy roast chicken and seasoned crispy potatoes! Obsessed with it! ..Also add a very cheeky/ lush mocktail/cocktail on the side- (why not?!) …can you spot it in the photo?! Mum and addy loved it!

I’ve been reminicing on my childhood recently, I think it’s because I’ve had such a crazy few years, comparing that to my childhood just seems utterly insane. I visited my mums photo box and picked out some cute photos, every photo makes me so so so happy. A lot of fun holidays, massive birthdays, celebrations with friends, dressing up and always had family memebers around me. That’s all I want and need in life, pure happiness from people who love me and pure love where it makes you happy.

NB; I actually made two roasts in a row.. (incoming pig noises ahah). Enjoy the foodie pictures, maybe I’ll invite you over someday aha! Roast dinner is one of my favourite meals. πŸ™‚

Random childhood photos, because why not! I don’t share a lot of my ‘personal life’, so heres a few little pictures.

Cooked and prepped. Hope you enjoy! Next time I’ll add more vegetables and pigs in blanket hehe.

Delicious mocktail.. Turned into a delicious cocktail. So perfect for this weather 🍸🍹
He looks good πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹ mmm crispy.
