scrambled egg and potato waffles

but that wasn't what you meant, was it grin

We're having duck breasts with a plum sauce (husband has been adapting on-line recipes. it involves star anise) and potatoes au gratin, with carrots and peas.

MaryBoBary Sun 19-Jan-20 14:24:02

We've got beef casserole, roast potatoes, swede, green beans and Cabbage

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 19-Jan-20 14:24:48

Stovies, but photos look terrible so I'll save you!

We’re having charred cherry tomatoes on yoghurt sauce, courgette and halloumi fritters, red pepper houmous, lamb chops marinated in olive oil and ras el hanout, with toasted pitta bread.

I’m looking forward to it!

MrsPelligrinoPetrichor Sun 19-Jan-20 14:26:46

Roast chicken and potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots and peas and sprouts, Yorkshire puddings and gravy. Tomorrow we'll have thick chicken soup with the leftovers.

Dogegg33 Sun 19-Jan-20 14:28:26

Tandoori cod with new potatoes and salad.

JiltedJohnsJulie Sun 19-Jan-20 14:35:08

I had pasta with lemon, rocket, smoked salmon, olive oil and black pepper.

The ham is in the slow cooker ready for a roast dinner later smile

We had bacon sandwiches for lunch.

We will have dinner at 6 though and have beef cooking in the slow cooker.

Do many people have a big meal in the middle of the day at the weekends-we never do?

TheThingWithFeathers Sun 19-Jan-20 14:38:43

We had tuna sandwiches. Sunday lunch is no different from lunch any other day in our house.

Ninkanink Sun 19-Jan-20 14:41:05

We do have a roast on most Sundays but we’re doing without in January to get over Christmas feasting...

cultkid Sun 19-Jan-20 14:48:13

@Dogegg33 can you share a recipe with me please 🖤

We usually eat Sunday lunch about 4 and mong out on the sofa after

I'm doing chicken broth today so will probably eat that tonight it's my favorite

I've chopped up a chicken it's on butternut squash hunks in the oven with thyme and garlic
Hassle back potatoes (I've only ever made them once before) and garlic mushrooms with spinach

I usually do roast about 2 times a month and then on a Sunday otherwise it's long cook food like lasagne, shep pie, chicken pie etc

Can't wait for the broth it's my very favorite food

We have a big lunch on Sundays. We all go to what we call "Church" but is just me and DD playing netball with DH and DS skating on their skateboards on the adjoining court. No religion (apart from the love of being outdoors doing stuff) Home by 11.30am nearer 12pm due to gossiping with friends I then shove something from the Green Roasting tin in the oven, showers are had and then we eat 1.30pm ish.

Tea then is get it yourself - cheese and crackers, warm up some soup (always a pan of weekend tomato soup in the fridge) or make yourself a toastie. After Sunday lunch I am Off.Duty.

Can hugely recommend these books for easy, easy, easy but really tasty meals. Veggie and Meat

cultkid Sun 19-Jan-20 18:45:33

@ChopOrNot the books look good. I've only recently started doing on tray meals and they are handy for washing up 😊 good old Mumsnet taught me the joy of a tray bake

We love soup in this house too,
Fennel is a firm favorite!!

I've never understood why people switch from dinner in the evening during the week to main meal soon after breakfast at the weekend.

Joint of rare roast beef is out of the oven & will be carved ready for dinner @ 20.00

Ninkanink Sun 19-Jan-20 19:40:18

We have our Sunday roast at our normal dinner time (anywhere from 7-8 pm).

katy1213 Sun 19-Jan-20 19:40:26

Roast leg of lamb here and like at @handbagsatdawn33, I wouldn't fancy it just after I got up.

ChopOrNot Sun 19-Jan-20 19:44:43

@handbagsatdawn33 and @katy1213 if you have a small breakfast at 9 (cos you are about to do sport) and then an hour of sport, believe me, you are hungry at 1pm!

And I love the chilled out Sunday afternoon/evening to be honest. Everyone else clears up after lunch, sorts their own tea later....I have nothing to do once lunch is served. Utter bliss. Try it!

PorpentinaScamander Sun 19-Jan-20 19:48:34

I didnt have lunch. Ds1 (15) had super noodles. Ds2 (13) had beans on toast.

We had sausage, mash, peas and gravy for dinner. Roasts are rare in the Scamander house.

inwood Sun 19-Jan-20 19:51:08

If we have people over or go out we eat main Sunday meal around 3pm. Today we ate at 7 with the kids, steak pie, mash, broccoli and peas.

DonnatellaLyman Sun 19-Jan-20 19:51:56

First roast since Xmas for us - it’s so cold! We do a brunch/snack lunch then dinner with toddler at half 5 ish on a Sunday. Love that all the cooking and clearing up is done by her bedtime and we can chill out/prep for work after.

Pork shoulder with sage and chorizo stuffing, zataar roasties, carrots and spinach followed by stewed apple and custard with toasted almonds.

Vegetarian sushi first time we made it and it was smashing.
