Its my first time cooking at home, usually at me Mums and she has a mahoosive double oven thing- the answer to your question is I don't have a freaking clue, and in all this planning I did not even think of that blush- I am currently stood in kitchen with laptop and looking at my oven and my list like this shock...
I had thought to put the rib eye in my slow cooker, so that would free up space, I have made and frozen my yorkies so I can pop them in for the last few mins when dishing up, but did not even think I may struggle with the rest.
Such a rookie mistake, but I will make it work!

Hopefully mine does not turn into one of these...
