Roast pork, stuffing,potato carrot and swede mash, broccoli, cauliflower and spinach here. With apple sauce and gravy. We'll eat around 1:45 - 2pm. I grew up eating the Sunday meal at around 6pm but am now in the habit of eating earlier and then having a light snack in the evening. What happens in your house?

We're having roasted pepper quiche and sweet potato wedges at about 12.30. It was going to be a roast dinner but we want to go out ASAP this afternoon after DD's nap because it's such a lovely day here!

Soup and bread for lunch. Pot roasted guinea fowl in an orange gravy for dinner.

Lunch about 12.30. Dinner will be about 7pm.

Roast chicken
Carrot and swede mashed up

My DH will cook he's better than me and he enjoys it. It's his thing on a Sunday

I have got a roast chicken and some lentil soup on the go. Not sure whether to have the roast at lunchtime and have soup this evening or the other way round.

legolimb Sun 24-Feb-19 10:39:18

No idea and no idea.

So far we've had toast and coffee in bed.

Still in bed.

No DC here.

Minty shepherds pie with leeks, broccoli and carrots. Eat about 7.30.

frogbull Sun 24-Feb-19 11:17:12

Chilli followed by cherry pie. We'll all eat about 5. Kids not keen on roasts so don't do them that often. Our Sunday dinner tends to be chilli, pasta bake, sausages, homemade pizza.

mydogisthebest Sun 24-Feb-19 11:24:28

We will eat about 7.30 and DH is making mushroom stroganoff. We both love roast dinners although not with meat (both vegetarian) but don't necessarily have one on a Sunday.

Interesting to read your replies. As I said, I grew up eating later in the evening and only ate Sunday lunch at lunchtime when I visited my grandparents. DP grew up eating at lunchtime so we've kind of adapted to doing that now. For me it means Sunday evenings are more relaxed as we'll just have supper of crumpets or crackers. Reminds me of my grandparents too and I think it's nice remembering people through food. I habitually get quite anxious on Sunday evenings so it's nice not to be cooking a meal in the evening.

We don't have proper Sunday dinners as dh is always working. We will have something quick when he gets in.

yearinyearout Sun 24-Feb-19 11:50:46

Just myself and DH so doing a small beef joint, roast potatoes, carrots, green beans, Yorkshires and gravy. Normally would do mash as well if the DC were here for the weekend but DH not fussed so more of a mini roast today. Will eat about 5.30!

cdtaylornats Sun 24-Feb-19 11:58:52

Chicken & date Tagine with Cous Cous and because I was a slow starter this morning about 7.

iklboo Sun 24-Feb-19 12:11:58

Today we're having garlic philly stuffed chicken breasts wrapped in prosciutto and baked with salsa, served with roasted baby new potatoes and greens. It's one of DS's favourite dinners. We'll probably eat about 5ish.

ValleyoftheHorses Sun 24-Feb-19 12:13:14

Moussaka today- homemade. Might have sweet potato fries with it.
We’ll eat around 7.

spicygirl26 Sun 24-Feb-19 12:13:20

Cheese sandwich and crisps for lunch, stir fry for tea I think!

spicygirl26 Sun 24-Feb-19 12:13:54

Forgot to add, we eat tea between 5-6ish, always eat together at the dining room table

bellyislikejelly Sun 24-Feb-19 12:16:22

Out for lunch today with sandwiches for tea if anyone is peckish later.

However roast is normally the done thing on a Sunday at home eaten around 14.30-15.00

PurplePepperEater Sun 24-Feb-19 12:21:48

We only eat brunch and dinner on a Sunday, so a big brunch around 10:30 then a roast around 4/4:30 followed by a pudding (only have one on sundays) and usually board & card games before the Sunday night get ready for the week madness begins

Today we’re having:
Roast potatoes & sweet potatoes
Roast parsnips
Green beans
Yorkshire pudding
And pudding is jam roly poly and custard

Meet0nTheledge Sun 24-Feb-19 12:24:29

Sandwiches or similar got lunch, cooked meal about 6.30 which will be either something quick like pasta or cooked in the instant pot such as stew or chilli, as we are all out at football/swimming clubs in the afternoon. We only do roast dinner about twice a year and one of those is Christmas, one of our DCs hates them and the rest of us aren't bothered.

Parker231 Sun 24-Feb-19 12:29:23

We’ve never done the traditional SUnday lunch or dinner. Sunday is a busy day - we usually go to our favorite deli for brunch and then visit friends. If we aren’t doing that, we spend a weekend a month in Belgium visiting my family and friends where we eat at a local restaurant.
