“This will be nice served with slices of fresh whole grain buttered bread, and for an extra professional look, try griddling the cut side of a lemon”.

Perfect roast

We could find no reason to complain about anything. Having had several " dine in dinners " this was as good as it gets. Our only comment was being small eaters this meal could have served another two people. Nothing was wasted though and will be ordering another meal soon. Congratulations to all concerned.
