The good old Sunday roast
Started by: i-spy (13330)  Report abuse
Is it still a must have in Wigan these days. Or do most people do the same as me - get a takeaway

Posted by: PeterP (6043) Report abuse
Try to have a roast meal at least once a week but not always on a Sunday

Posted by: jathbee (8095) Report abuse
Sunday roast is still favourite in this house.

Posted by: irene (2627)  Report abuse
Yes, but I cheat with the mash these days! I use frozen. It's done in minutes in the microwave. Then add butter, hot milk and a cheese triangle and it's superb, and so little trouble. Nothing like Smash and the powdered substitutes.

Both I and my spouse like to partake of roasted bovine flesh on the Sabbath.

We usually accompany it with some boiled tubers and various root vegetables.

Presumably you are joined by Leonard Sachs and Stanley Unwin.

Indubitably.

sunday roast most weeks .

Posted by: broady (12560)   Report abuse
Sometimes. Days mean nothing when retired. If we want a roast on Tuesdays so be it.

Posted by: lectriclegs (2786) Report abuse
Oh, decadence of it all.

May have Fajitas today.

I enjoy a roast in the week rather than Sunday, and I like bacon and eggs for tea rather than for breakfast. As the old music-hall song says, "A little of what you fancy does you good!" x.

McDonalds is now the Sunday lunch....I blame all mums...they can't be "bothered"

Posted by: broady (12560)   Report abuse
roylew,
Sunday Roasts are another left over from the past. I used to love my Mum's but now I couldn't care if I had one or not. Times have changed and if kids want fast food then so be it. Probably not Mum's fault. They eat what they like. ( I eat McDonalds as it is convenient and cheap if I am out and about)

Would anyone believe I have had only one McDonalds in my life. I tasted one from their first Wigan branch, Standishgate and thought the buns were made of cotton wool. An aunt went in and expected to order a cup of tea.

Anne,I have only ever had one as well..and only because it was an
emergency meal halfway through work..didn't care for it but have never
seen young uns work as fast.

Posted by: jathbee (8095) Report abuse
Nothing nice or wholesome about fast food. Spoils the palate for decent food.

Posted by: broady (12560)   Report abuse
If you say so. The much vaunted fish and chips from the discussion are only fast foods.

Posted by: irene (2627)  Report abuse
I love a Mac Donald's, I admit! x.

Posted by: roylew (2354) Report abuse
All salt though....that's why they are so more ish

Posted by: PeterP (6043) Report abuse
Mcdonald's for us is a stop gap meal. Find that if you don't eat the fries very quickly they soon go coldReading today beans and sausage replacing the beef on a sunday dinner

Posted by: jathbee (8095) Report abuse
I have had one McDonald's, KFC and a Nando's. I won't be reacting any of them any time soon. Never tried Subway and no intention of doing so.

Posted by: billy (25892)  Report abuse
bad press subway.

Posted by: broady (12560)   Report abuse
Billy,
I have had Subway quite a lot over the years and no complaints. On the other hand I have had some Sunday lunches in various establishments I wouldn't feed to the dog. I have no preconceived ideas. I try something and if I like it that is it. Never had hedgehog though. Have had Alligator.

The menu from the Grizzly House in Banff.

"Exotic Fondue (7oz.)
Shark, Alligator, Rattlesnake, Ostrich, Frogs Legs, Buffalo and venison served with our special Sauces.

Very popular. Served on a Lava stone so you cook your own.

Posted by: jathbee (8095) Report abuse
