I've been feeling a little under the weather. I'm on the mend, but to simplify Christmas dinner I've decided to just toss all the veggies under the rib roast instead of making separate sides like I normally do. The problem is that I have some picky eaters in my family and as one precocious kid claimed last year "never will I eat food that's shared a plate with onions". Fill in the blank for onions with carrots, broccoli and mushrooms and you can see how difficult this might be. That said, I'm still not up to making individual sides, so I thought I'd just try to keep all the veggies separated and spoon them into different serving dishes once cooked. This will keep the picky adults happy and if the kids have a problem with it they can eat more rolls.
Then my thoughts went to "it sure would be great if they made a disposable segregated aluminum roast pan"....didn't see that at my grocery store, but that got me to think that SURELY someone has needed such a contraption before and I only have to think of a way to rig it with materials I've got on hand.
Any tips? Any one tried to segregate their veggies in a roasting pan under a roast before?
