SUNDAY ROAST AND LOVE

This is my Sunday. The weather is fine and warm and I am sitting with my French doors open enjoying the sunshine while I blog. The lunch is cooking away in the kitchen and smells wonderful. Today we have chicken, sage and onion stuffing, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and YORKSHIRE PUDDING. I know, Yorkshire pudding doesn’t go with chicken, but hey, we like it so we have it every week. For pudding we have home made rice pudding (for my grandson) and shop bought vanilla and chocolate cheesecake (for our daughter).

On the stroke of 1.00 pm our daughter, SIL and two of our grandsons will arrive, full of stories about the amazing holiday they just had. Because we have such a large family we operate a “Sunday Lunch Rota”. Occasionally we will even have a mass get together, but that takes some organising and can only happen when we are all feeling very energetic. One of the reasons for the big renovation programme was to extend our kitchen so that we could all be together in one room now and again! God is in his heaven and all’s well with the world.

Thank you so much Sandi. I will have to think about this. I have so many people I want to share the love with and during the week I will name them and invite them to come over and pick it up. Now, I have to get on with the cooking otherwise I will not be the one that is loved!

Sounds like heaven.

aims said...

Of course you deserve that award!

You are definitely a 'sharing the love' kind of person. Look what you do for OG - look what you do for us....

Yup - richly and rightly deserved!

Sandi McBride said...

You are so welcome...you and your hubby remind me of Mac and me so much...dearly loved but they can really put a strain on the nerves, lol...wish I were there to have a meal and a cup of tea and take in the breeze from the french doors!

i had yorkshire pudding once and one time only--in the actual yorkshire! it was....different. (that's waht we say in minnesota when we want to be polite, but not lie.)

thanks for the award!! and congratulations to you!!!

I feel as though we could be married, your 'family' attitude towards Sunday Lunch being exactly the same as Mrs Billy's. Then, we always have yorkshire puddings every week, regardless of what the meat is, beef, pork, lamb or chicken.

Thanks for thinking of me for this kind award!

Thank you for thinking of me with this award! Surprised the heck out of me! I am - of course - humbly grateful. I knew you deserved it - I didn't think I did!

Hugs..

Lovely Sunday Roast RAC, it has encouraged me to do one this weekend - with yorkshire puds too. Thank you so much for the Award, I'll snaffle it now and wrestle with the link later. M :-)

Heaven IS a Sunday Road Carrie

Thanks aims, but I know a lot of people that would disagree with you!

Retiredandcrazy said...

Funny you should mention the breeze Sandi because we have just renamed out house Gentle Breeze.

Ah but did you ever eat Yorkshire Pudding with maple syrup Laurie? I was introduced to this by an american friend and it is strangely addictive.

We are of the same generation Billy.
