Just the thought of a Sunday roast makes my mouth water - mmmmmm.
I've been away from the UK for a year now and without doubt the hardest thing to leave behind (apart from family and friends) was the traditional Sunday roast ritual.
Most families eat a 'roast' early afternoon on Sunday and then spend the afternoon relaxing on the sofa in front of the TV with an uncomfortable and extremely full feeling after eating a few too many potatoes but we wouldn't have it any other way!
Here is my mum preparing a roast during our recent visit.
Roast dinners usually consist of a roasted meat (turkey, chicken, beef, pork, lamb or a vegetarian loaf), roasted and boiled vegetables, gravy, Yorkshire puddings, stuffing and a condiment chosen based on the type of meat. Non English people can find it funny that we have a specific fruit sauce to match each meat and it's considered poor form to match the wrong sauce to the meat.
The meal was then topped off with a bowl of berries....
and a coffee.
Delicious mum! you really are a.....
We didn't have Yorkshire Puddings on this occasion but they are a mainstay of the Sunday tradition. Have you ever tried one?
