Traditional Sunday Lunch.........

was once a staple in many households.  A full roast dinner with all the trimmings, where all the family sat down together. 

Since moving to Canada it's not something we have done very often, however on Sunday we did sit down to a full roast beef dinner, with roasted potatoes, roasted carrots, Yorkshire pudding, cabbage and gravy.  Boy was it good and well worth all the heat it created while cooking, as it was another hot and humid day. 

The only thing we had leftover was some cabbage, so no leftovers for today :0( oh well never mind.

Do you have a traditional roast dinner on a Sunday lunchtime?

We usually do if we are going to be home. We then use the left overs during the week or for work/school lunches.

I only have one daughter home at the moment, but we sit down each night at the table for dinner, all three of us. Tonight it is just me and Bri so we will have 'lap tea'. I feel like Chow Mein, not sure what Bri wants. It's called 'get yer own'!

Cheers - Joolz

Yes always, whether I'm in U.K. or in U.S. I wouldn't do without it. What do you eat if you don'e eat a roast, I wonder? It lasts for two days so it's very economical and there is even some left over for sandwiches on days three and four, if you're lucky. Yesterday we had a gammon roast with cheese sauce, roast potatoes, mashed swede and carrots (butter added) and a Cornetto cone ice cream for afters. It was delicious. Today we will have cold gammon ham with chips and fresh runner beans, plums and custard for dessert.
Have a good week Gill.

When I was growing up we always had a roast dinner on a Sunday. If we were lucky it was roast chicken which was very expensive in the 1960s but usually it was roast lamb which was cheap. Nowadays it is the other way around - bbq chicken is so cheap in the shops and lamb is sooooo expensive! lol

Sometimes in the winter,when the cold and snow mean there is nothing to be done outside, we'll have a traditional Sunday lunch, but being vegan it's not traditional in the meat sense!

Growing up, my mom usually cooked a large Sunday meal, many times which was roast with potatoes and carrots. I will do it occasionally but the time we get out of church usually sends us straight to a restaurant!

Hello Gill!! Your dinner really sounds delicious, but would you believe that I've never had Yorkshire pudding? ....I guess I'm so 'American!' :-)

No, no big meal on Sundays anymore. I used to serve a big Sunday meal in the past, though. And for sure I grew up eating a HUGE Sunday dinner.

I have to say, not as much as we used to. Gregg and I are usually out a lot over the weekend and there is not much time to cook. I do love a good Sunday Roast though, and next time son and daughter-in-law come over, will fix the roast beef with all the trimmings.

No, I have never had a traditional Sunday dinner of any kind...not that I have established. But if I had anything that resembled one, it would be fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy...and green beans...
