I appreciate the suggestion but I simply cannot abide lamb.Red wine from my cellar sounds a splendid idea. !
Furthermore if I informed my dear wife that I was cooking a roast dinner she would firmly believe I had taken leave of my senses or that I had a guilty conscience.

Buy her a bunch of half-dead flowers from the local petrol station as well and really give her something to worry about then.......

Sunday roasts belong to the time when everything was closed on Sunday (except the churches) all the family, and extended family or guests, all sat down at the table to eat at the same time. These days, with people off doing different things, children off to various sports events or clubs, it's less practical for many families. Shame, but life changes!

Perhaps you ought to take a lead and show here exactly what she has been missing all these years a 'Willo' Easter themed roast meal of your own!
marsh fed Welsh lamb, a fine array of 'al dente' spring vegetables, your own slant on roasted potatoes, fresh mint sauce & redcurrant jelly served with a fine jus and a nice bottle of red wine from your own cellar!

Not for the goose or duck!

To be truthful I have not purchased any flowers for the dear lady since she was recovering from a heart attack over 25 years ago.
I think she would suffer another one if I presented her with a bunch of roses !

Yes, but not necessarily on a Sunday so I suppose it is a roast not a Sunday roast Roast lamb is by far and away my favourite - roast parsnips, peas, sprouts and roast potatoes being the ideal accompaniment.

Once upon a time when I was a youngster, and we are talking about late 50s, and 1960s, if you stuck your head outside the door at anytime from 12 onwards on a Sunday, there would be the smell of roast meats and gravy wafting over the neighbourhood - particularly in the summer when peoples doors and windows would be open. These days it is more likely to be the smell of barbecue coals.

As a kid mums budget was tight , we would have a starter of sliced suet pudding and gravy then the main dinner just to make the roast stretch between 6 , happy times , i still only go to the pub at 12 and leave at 2ish like i did with my dad , I do all the cooking and would have prepared and what im going to cook , and i have a hostess trolley so helps to keep all the food for the table hot

Many years ago I went to see our team play at Luton.
I parked my car in a road of terraced houses and when I opened the door all I could smell was aroma of curry wafting through the air.It was a rather pleasant given that I have always enjoyed such culinary delights.
I believe we won that game 1-0 with an early Chris Coleman goal.

I'm not a gambling man, but I wouldn't mind betting that there are one or two of us on here who won't be having a roast this coming Sunday!

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.
