In Association With Aunt Bessie's
It’s that time of year again when we have to think about what we are going to get for our mothers. My own mother is notoriously difficult to buy for as she always says that she wants “nothing.”
She does like a good roast dinner though, and I’m not always in the mood to actually make roast anything from scratch, so keeping it simple is always a good idea.
I am planning cooking this mothers day, as there probably won’t be anywhere left now that we can actually book. My car is due an MOT and is out of action for a week or two, and relying on a replacement car in the meantime means I don’t have enough seats to take us all out.
We’ve always eaten our meals with the boys at the table and we’re lucky enough to have two tables to choose from. We have a smaller table in the kitchen, and a bigger one in our family room/dining room/everything room.
I love having everyone around the table and all chatting while they eat. It’s just such a throwback to my childhood when we all sat around the table then. I’ve kept that tradition up with my boys and they just don’t ever consider going anywhere else to eat.
For a lovely homely dinner, it’s likely that we’ll start with a roast, home-made roast potatoes and Aunt Bessie’s for my Yorkshires.

Mine were about 13/14 when I took them. When we were there, there were a fair few kids around their…
This is a good recipe, I swap oil for lard however as fat retains moisture better making the bread softer.
