Sunday Roasties

Sunday in Britain is traditionally the day for a roast dinner. The childhood memories wrapped up in a Sunday roast lunch are precious and numerous. When my mum made a roast beef with all the trimmings it was heaven on a Sunday lunch plate. Yorkshire puddings the size of houses. Gravy. Mustard on the table. And the crown on the plate - roast potatoes: crispy, juicy, hot.

Now that I am a mother trying to instil a little Britishness into all four of my Dutch boys, I realise just how much work my mum went through every Sunday to have a roast on the table for us. But, oh, they were and still are so appreciated! 

If you are a British expat: do you miss Sunday roasts? Do you still cook them where you are? If you are not British - have you ever had the pleasure of a traditional roast?



  1. I love my Sunday roasts and look forward to them every or most weeks, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill

    1. We don't have them very often now I live in the Netherlands - which makes them all the more special when I make one!

  2. I am new here so I am trying to learn how to do a proper Sunday roast. Still not successful =P #mysundayphoto

  3. You can't beat roast potatoes no matter what day it is
