I’m no Super Ninja Mum, I do like to cook from fresh but on occasion I need a bit of a break and am always up for a bit of a cheat sometimes. I want to let you in on a secret; I’ve got someone helping me in the kitchen and she’s come to my rescue on a few occasions recently.
I don’t know how many times I have tried to make Roast Potatoes, I’ve tried goose fat, par boiling, knocking them about in the colander etc and they never turn out brilliantly. Recently, I’ve discovered Aunt Bessie’s Frozen Roast Potatoes. Some of you may be grimacing but honestly they are quite good and I can’t be bothered with all the effort of pealing and working out the timings and temperatures.
This weekend after a couple of wines in the pub I thought it was a good idea to invite friends over for an impromptu roast as I’d left one in the oven. Luckily, my freezer was stocked full of Aunt Bessie’s stuff: Homestyle Gravy, which is much nicer than the granule stuff, Roast Potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and Apple Pie. No one complained and I almost looked domesticated! :-)
And another discovery I’ve made, Aunt Bessie’s Casseroles are suitable for slow cooking with instructions on the pack. All you have to do is put 300ml of water in and your set to go! As I said, I like to cook from fresh normally but they are great for a mid week meal and were surprisingly nice. Another bonus is that they have less than 5 Weight Watcher Proplus points so I can have dumplings as well!
I’ve been having a chat with the people at Aunt Bessie’s and they’ve kindly offered 3 prizes so you can try them for yourself. £10 may not seem like a lot but you could probably buy all the accompaniments for a roast with them. Simply enter by using the Rafflecopter form below. Competition Closes on the 27th of October at midnight (EST).
Disclosure: I received a selection of products complimentary.
