Potatoes

God love my housemates (cos no-one else would!).....

When instructing Jenny (one of my housemates) on how to make roast potatoes... we took for granted that she would peel them before par-boiling them.

Needless to say most instructions are now vastly more detailed.

My mate's roomies despaired when she managed to burn a pan of pasta being boiled!

Not as obvious as you might think - after all, when you bake potatoes you leave the skin on, and roast potatoes do have a nice crusty kind of thing so that could be the skin. No, I've never made roast potatoes before either.
