Roast Dinner with Wayne "Bruce Wayne" Kong and associates.

Deciding to spend some quality time with a mate and his family, the next logical question to ask is "What's for dinner?"

Scratching my head whilst browsing the aisle of the supermarket, we decided with the following dishes.

Roasted pork shoulder and Roasted chicken.... Sounds pretty normal eh? With these two items in the oven, this gave us time to catch up with Wayne over a nice warm glass of Dihydrogenmonooxide.

Prepping the Pork shoulder.

Marinating the pork shoulder in salt, pepper and garlic powder with just a dash of Old Bay.

Letting meat chill in the fridge with the skin side up to allow it to dry out and hopefully give us crispy crackling later on

Mirepoix: Onions, Carrots, Celery, Garlic, Salt, Pepper with the final two ingredients right at the back: Stock and a bottle of beer.

Place your pork on the Mirepoix and pour in your bottle of beer and stock till the veggies are just submerged.

Preparation for the roast chicken: 1 x size 21~23 Staggles family roast chicken. Ingredients for sauce: Sage, garlic, cinnamon sticks, lemon zest and 1 mandarin orange, salt and pepper to taste.

Butterfly your chicken and place it over the other ingredients.

Pour over 500~1000ml of milk to keep chicken moist whilst roasting.

The best view in the kitchen by far.

Check out that crackling!

Plated and ready to be served!
