Pork roast has always been my family’s go-to dinner idea when everyone was coming over, actually either pork or duck. My grandma used to roast duck and I loved it, I also shared a recipe a few months back and you can still check it out – Roasted duck. Seems like the tradition of making duck or pork roast has imprinted on me, so now it’s also my favourite family dinner idea.
This weekend’s my family weekend when we all get together, hang out, I play with the kids and we have a nice time. Even though it may seem like it, we don’t see each other as much so I’m happy every time we get the chance to do so. Pork roast as you may conclude is on the menu and can’t wait to taste it. It’s so hot outside and some wouldn’t want to make a recipe like this, but it’s worth it, the scent of roasted potatoes will drive you crazy making you check them every 10 min if they’re done. So if you’re up for a delicious dinner – this is just the recipe!
