Have you heard the story of the woman who always cut the end off her roast before putting it in the pan and into the oven?
When asked about the benefit of such a strange method, she replied that she did it because that’s how her mother cooked roast.
Finally she called her mother to find the answer. Why did she cut the end off the roast? “So it would fit in my roasting pan.”
Sometimes we do things just because “that’s how they’re done.”
