    Yum! I’m always looking for new dinner ideas to have when we’ve got company, and this seems like a definite winner.

    Hi Mary,
    Is this roast boneless or bone-in? I am estimating what size roast I will need for an upcoming dinner based on that answer.

    Hi Mary,

    Is this roast bone in or boneless? The answer will definitely come into play when I estimate how large a roast I will need for upcoming dinner event. Thank you!!
