used to do Sunday lunch every week till the kids grew up....now there is just me and OH and he wouldn't eat it if I could cook it. The two kids who are still at home are both restaurant workers so they work Sundays sometimes till the early hours of Monday. Yes always yorkshire puddings but then I am a Yorkshire lass![/b]

we only have this occasionally now. But when we do, it's usually later in teh day, around 4.30. I can't cope with doing it, OH isn't that fussed on it and my son couldn't care less so hardly makes it worth the effort. I actually enjoy it.

well I love Yorkshires with gravy on but I'd never thought of trying them with cream instead :? mind you, when you think about it, they probably would work.

We always have Sunday Dinner (at lunchtime... dinner is the main meal of the day no matter when you eat it) Hubby makes it. We always have yorkshire puddings.. it's one of my favourite bits but then both families are from the NE so maybe that's why.

Managed to get some cheap beef this week so horseradish sauce as well Yum :D

Must admit I do like yorkie puds so do hubby and young son - I often ready to bake/heat up ones instead of puff pastry if I am doing a casserole (hubby likes steak pie so this is a compromise) - saves time and is less messy than pastry.

Used to go out with someone who's Mum was from Yorkshire. When she did Sunday lunch she always served the yorkshire pud with gravy as a starter before the meal and not with the roast itself. She said it was traditional to do it that way.

that is the traditional "yorkshire" way of serving it, but a lot of people dont bother. the first time my hubby came round to my mums an we had sunday dinner, she served the yorkshires first amd hubby recently confesses, thats all he thought we were giving him!

Depends on the family tradition My family always have it with the meal whereas my friends family serve it first.Either way it goes down well.My mom use to put onion in sometimes. Do you have little individual ones or big one cut in pieces ,we have big one. motherelle.x

sunday lunch on a saturday

Postby ellen b » Sun Mar 08, 2009 1:37 pm

We went down the bungalow that we are swapping with and got invited totally unexpectedly to dinner turns out it was the best sunday roast including all the trimming we had eaten in ages and with some really wonderful company, not only are we swapping for an adapted bungalow which will make life easier but have gained two lovely friends.

Well reading this post was well timed cos me & my hubby have just finished the washing up. We have sunday dinner EVERY sunday. We always have a joint of meat & yorkshires home made small round ones made in a muffin tray. My family as you can tell are creatures of habit.I have to admit sometimes i wish i could just lie in. My husband will say "lie in and i will do it but i feel soooo guilty and cant relax. Mad arent I :roll:
