IMG_3898

This my friends, is one fantastical roast! I had gone grocery shopping Saturday evening with the intention on making this roast the following day, but we had a family party to attend so it had to wait until tonight. I was going to do my usual Lady & Sons Boston Butt Roast but thought to myself “Why are you letting yourself get into a recipe rut again” then I realized how right my inner drunken conscious was and decided to do something else. Let me introduce you to the Rosemary Garlic & Dijon Boston Butt Roast!

::YAY::

While you wait for your roast, gaze deep into the bottom of your glass of wine and wait for your kitchen timer to go off.

Just kidding again, but really look at that roast…. allow it to rest for about 30 minutes before carving…
