Sunday Roast and Highland Games!

On friday me and my Mum made a Sunday Roast she roasted the beef in oil and water at 350 for about 2 hours it was just right. The last time I roasted beef I think I overcooked it and didn't add enough fluid so its cool to have had a lesson with Mum. I made the Yorkshire puddings though and they were perfect they rose perfectly.

Yorkshire Puddings:

  • one cup of all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • about 2 cups milk

  1. mix the flour eggs and milk with a blender to a nice pancake type batter
  2. heat the oven to 450 degrees then add a little oil to the bottom on muffin pans and heat
  3. remove from oven after a couple of minutes and add the pancake batter don't over fill
  4. bake for 10-15 minutes until they are nicely risen and golden brown
We went to the Winston Salem Highland Games today it was so much fun even saw Irn Bru a Scottish soda and Haggis!

especially the busy Mums
