Questions #2: Full English Breakfast Ingredients

Questions #1: Roast Dinner Ingredients

Occasionally, in work, we have Questions.  A question will be posed by one member of the group, the rest of the group take their turn to provide an answer.  This often encourages  stimulating conversation as each individual’s opinion is thrown into the mix, enlightening their colleagues and giving an insight into their mind.  It also distracts people from fiddling about with their phones for five minutes and enables some social interaction.

I won’t pretend that we debate the deepest philosophical topics, but asking a question does give some food for thought.  In this case, literally.  Here’s a question from this week:

Q: What would be your ideal five ingredients for a roast dinner?

You can pick five items, no more.

Now I hate roast dinners with a passion.  A roast dinner (or Sunday Roast, if you will) is bland, boring food for a dull, miserable rainy day.  Tasteless and uninspiring.  Why bother when you could have Mexican, Indian, or Thai food?  There’s just no need in the 21st Century to eat this stuff.

I will return to how much I detest roast dinners in another post.  For now though, I entered into the spirit of things and gave my answer.  It wasn’t easy.  Here are the items picked by my friends for their ideal, yet limited, roast dinner.

Wolfie

  1. Lamb
  2. Roast potatoes
  3. Minted gravy
  4. Carrots
  5. Cauliflower cheese

Ben

  1. Beef (with fat on it – WTF?)
  2. Roast potatoes
  3. Green runner beans
  4. Yorkshire pudding
  5. Gravy

Mark D

  1. Parsnips crisps
  2. Pigs in blankets
  3. Stilton stuffing
  4. Belly pork
  5. Extra crackling

Brian (Veggie – this is getting worse…)

  1. Yorkshire pudding
  2. Roast potatoes
  3. Stuffing
  4. Honey glazed carrots
  5. Nut roast

Terry

  1. Lamb
  2. Roast potatoes
  3. Carrots
  4. Cauliflower
  5. Gravy

Jayne

  1. Yorkshire pudding
  2. Gravy
  3. Roast potatoes
  4. Gammon
  5. Chicken

Woody

  2. Yorkshire pudding
  3. Sprouts
  4. Cheese cauliflower (?!)
  5. Gravy

  5. Gravy

I ignored the vegetable options.  They’re the worst bit.
