Just seeing how many people have a roast type dinner on Sunday.

I am having toast garlic chicken with vegetable bake.

No, very rare for us to have one, about twice a year to keep my hand in for Christmas. DH and DS aren't keen on them, I'm take it or leave it.

Very rarely, although we do tend to have a pudding, which we don't have during the week.

We do most weeks although its not quite the full roast in summer. In honour of the sun being out today I'm doing Gammon in honey and mustard with new potatoes and veg followed by Apple Pie and Ice Cream.

Roast beef Yorkshire pud followed by apple crumble and half price ambrosia smile

We do a roast about once or twice a month. Today was chicken last week was lamb (dh had a rare Sunday off and cooked) next week will be pasta lol

Nope. I usually do our big, family, 2-course dinner on a Monday because it's quieter than Sunday.

It's not always a roast. Tomorrow we're having toad in the hole with venison sausages and roasted veg, followed by some kind of meringue-based dessert.

Roast beef here today. We do normally do a roast as DS likes it. Sometimes have something like lasagna instead though.

coffeewineandchocolate Sun 19-May-13 15:45:03

roast chicken, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, gravy and veg here :-)

We will all eat together as a family this evening (doesn't often happen tbh) but we are having cottage pie, rather than a roast. I find making a cottage pie a bit of a faff, actually, would rather do a roast!

JambalayaCodfishPie Sun 19-May-13 15:46:26

We are today but we rarely do. We're having turkey, roasties, veg. No yorkshires today though.

Just waiting on an ETA for DD1 who's at the seaside so I know when to start cooking. It's all ready to go.

Iwantmybed Sun 19-May-13 15:46:35

Hardly ever have a roast, I love em but DH is not fussed. Although the clean up is a pain so not too bad.

ilovepowerhoop Sun 19-May-13 15:46:43

we are having wraps with southern fried chicken, salad, salsa, etc. We sometimes have lasagne, bolognese, toad in the hole and occasionally a roast.

CMP69 Sun 19-May-13 15:51:56

We had roast lamb, boulangiere potatoes, brocolli, carrots and parsnip. Haven't had a roast for ages, but it was lovely

Ruprekt Sun 19-May-13 15:52:16

Roast veal today with
cauliflower cheese

Fruit for dessert

catwithflowers Sun 19-May-13 15:57:09

No, only one of the kids is fussed about roast dinners so I rarely bother. Spaghetti carbonara for supper tonight smile

Ruffello Sun 19-May-13 16:28:33

Always a big Sunday meal here. Weekends are the only times DH, teenage DCs and I sit down and eat together so I like to do something special - not always a roast sometimes a big lasagne or some such - today it's a slow roast pulled pork with polenta and ratatouille.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 19-May-13 19:09:14

We've got into a bit of a pattern over the last few weeks of having a bit of a 'dumbed down' Sunday roast, after not having them much at all for years.

Today it was:

Nut cutlets (Waitrose)
Roast sweet and normal potatoes (the only thing we prepared from scratch!)
Stuffing (Paxo)
Vege (frozen)
Gravy (Bisto)
Mint sauce (bought)

Lazy but the dds gobble it up with more enthusiasm than most of my lovingly made from scratch meals. smile

No roast for, but I always cook and sit for a family meal on a Sunday. We rarely eat at once and hardly ever at the table so I make the effort on a Sunday. I always try a new recipe or meal, todays was a poached chicken and freekah wheat dish. Next week is likely to be a leg of lamb, shredded and stuffed in pitta with an harissa sauce.

MrsPnut Sun 19-May-13 19:14:13

No roast for us today but only because we were away for the weekend. It's the same story next weekend but we should be back on track the weekend after.

If the weather is nice then we usually have roast meat with salads but if it's cold then it's meat, roasties, yorkshire puddings, stuffing and veg.

FoundAChopinLizt Sun 19-May-13 19:14:25

Just finished roast chicken, parsnips, carrots, yorkshires, potatoes. green beans gravy. Then ice cream. Dh cooked and dcs clear up. It's quite a cost effective way to feed six big eaters. Had cheese on toast with beans at lunch.

Chicken and chick pea curry tomorrow, and will make soup to freeze.

We usually do a special Sunday meal but it's rarely a traditional roast - usually it's a an opportunity to try out a new dish.

ByTheSea Sun 19-May-13 20:51:34

We went out to a nice pub. We spent all day (and yesterday) sorting and decluttering getting ready to move in a couple of weeks. We needed the break.

Facebaffle Sun 19-May-13 20:53:43

We usually have a Sunday roast.

Today we had pizza and salad and the dc were shock

CrazyOldCatLady Sun 19-May-13 20:58:02

We had a casserole of pork chops, carrots, turnips and apples with herby dumplings. Just as well it's November. Oh, wait...
