Sunday is Roast day. Pork, Beef, Lamb, Chicken, with various roasted vegetables, stuffings, sides of whipped potatoes or squash, fresh greens sauteed etc. Many meals during the week are then spinoffs from the Sunday roast...stews, pies, soups, hashes, etc.

Such was our family tradition. Harder to keep to without the family all at home. But we do try when we are together.

Rainy Sunday

It is going to be rainy this Sunday I might go for slow simmered
chili, or maybe a brisket in the crock pot. Normally we will smoke
a brisket but if it is rainy probably won't want to be outside to
much.

When I was growing up, Sunday was roast day for us, too. Mom would put either a beef or pork roast on before we went to church, then add the vegetables, cook a side dish, and make the gravy after we got home. We always had a dessert, too...usually a homemade apple or cherry pie. The next day, mom would make stew out of leftover vegies, gravy, and some of the meat, and use the rest for meat spread, which my dad loved to take in his bucket. Occasionally she varied that by serving a baked ham and twice baked potatoes.
Nowadays, our Sunday dinner is an evening meal, cooked on the grill when weather permits.

I grew up on a farm and Sunday dinner was the BIG meal of the week, served right after church. I still can almost taste the wonderful cooking my grandma would do.

I still like to make a nice, big dinner every Sunday. In the winter months, I'll make a roast or stew, homemade bread and an apple pie for dessert. In the summer, I like to make fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, brownies or a big Italian meal. Occassionally, I roast a small leg of lamb over potato wedges with lots of garlic, rosemary, lemons and olive oil. The smell of that is just too good.

Toots, call me when you make the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy! That's one of my favorite meals.

Sunday dinner was only "Sunday Dinner" back in my parents' days. It always meant a roast pork, or roast beef, or some Czech chicken dish, etc., etc.

Was always served around 2 p.m., which, of course, went awry once we kids were old enough to have activities that made having a big meal in the middle of the day unwieldy.

I miss those good old days now.

can't choose either, rickell. Nowadays Sunday is the only day I have the time to cook leisurely, so I like recipes that I can fiddle with all day long.
