I hope this is accepted as something that should be in the History section, after all different generations will have different views on this subject and can express them. What has brought this about, yesterday while having our Sunday dinner we had family call upon us and of cause we told them if we knew they were coming they could have had their dinner. Well, they had been to some burger place, the kids like it and like most kids, see it as a treat.

Thinking back to when i was a child growing up in the 50s and 60s there was absolutely no way i or any other member of the family would have been allowed to be anywhere else other than around my mothers table for Sunday dinner, not to do so, would have been punishable by death or something very close, anyone who has ever heard the expression your dinner is in the dog, well failing to turn up, thats exactly where it ended up. The way she viewed it in those days was, and perhaps money may have been tight and it wasn't always possible to afford roasts in the week,Sunday was the only day the whole of the family were available to sit around a table together. Sunday was in most cases a day off. My wife and i still have a Sunday Dinner every single week no matter where we are and i wouldn't miss it for the world, its a tradion i will never drop, but it seems to be a tradion thats coming to or come to an end.

Sunday dinner is still a tradition in my house Bert. After 26 years in S.E. Asia & now home for good, I wouldn't miss it.
Yesterday was a late one as had to stay sober to visit a friend in hospital before going to the Pub. Did a ribeye joint with roast spuds, parsnips & carrots, all in the roasting pan. Some wine was taken during the cooking & that mixed with the several pints in the Pub, was the cause of me forgetting to serve the sprouts & cabbage which were left in the pan! Never mind, they will do for the leftovers today.

Long live the Sunday Roast. We still do it over here bert, and my daughters do it as well. My son's missus doesn't even when he is not working and he is not too happy about that but takes the opportunity to come round when he can, he's like a dog with two choppers then.

I still have a Sunday Roast either at my mums or at my mates mothers. When I lived at home I use to have a "blind" roast on Thursdays. Baically all the trimmings but without meat. Modernists would just call it a vegeterian meal!!

I do a roast every sunday, just to finish/start a week off. My 13 year old has never tasted a roast as he doesn't like the look of it, needless to say he looks like an underfed waif, my other son who would rather die than miss his roast is a strapping lad with plenty of bone coverage laugh

We also always had Sunday roast; unfortunate really, since my mother could destroy any meat known to man. She was also of the school that thought cabbage, sprouts, & the like should be vigorously boiled for at least an hour. She managed to rescue some of the goodness in them by making us drink the water in which they had been boiled. My gran, on the other hand, was a great cook. I often used to go there & was fed the most marvellous scouse & her home made bread. She was also a great cook with fish. The highlight of the year was when we all went to her for Christmas dinner & had a goose with all the trimmings.

Something like that, bert. In fact, it would contain whatever vitamins & minerals which hadn't been destroyed by the boiling. It wasn't actually unpleasant to drink.
