    Just wondering if you keep up with the sunday roasts, with next day being school day...
    I love sundays roasts, but dont have them every week....
    I have fussy kids, so we take it in turn if its chicken this week, lamb for next time.

    Are you roasting the Sunday joint, or smoking it?

    Careful Jolly_Roger, you'll frighten off a newbie. ;)
    They may not quite 'get' our sense of humour on here.

    We only have them if we go out to lunch on a Sunday...so probably about twice a year.
    Mothering Sunday and OH's mother's birthday.

    Not really to do with work though, it would probably be the same if I wasn't a teacher.
    More that the huge amount of effort isn't reflected in the reward.

    Perhaps it is a workplace dilemma in that most teachers don't have time to do a Sunday roast and all its trimmings due to marking, cleaning the house and catching up on life - on Sundays ;)

    Good save sabrinakat! ;) :D

    Plus with the price of joints these days most teachers can't afford a weekly joint. ;)

    Just about every Sunday, it is not a lot of work. I have had to put more effort into cooking 4 frozen ready curries than a roast. The Keith Floyd approach to cooking makes it fun.

    Getting totally rata***d and adding the wrong ingredients you mean ?

    Nearly every Sunday but I keep it as easy as possible with frozen desserts etc. Many, many times I’ve rushed through it to get onto school work so it is an issue for teachers and workload. However, we have to eat.

    One of the joys of semiretirement is that I can relax and take my time over whatever I want to do on a Sunday without any school pressures looming. Anything that is there can wait till Monday.

    At the moment with all the s*** I've got going on at work, I'd be so happy if what I had for dinner was my only dilemma.

    We eat at about 6.00 so I could easily do a joint and still have time for a busy day. I often cook fish on a Sunday during the summer but now it's getting wintry we're on to a beef casserole which does us for Sunday and Monday. That'll be us now till Spring - more or less.
    Just spotted you posted this on Workplace Dilemmas. :p:p:p.That makes a pleasant change.

    Sometimes. The joy (well, one of many joys) of single living is if I want a roast I can cook a little one, or a venison burger, or stir fry. Sunday has no real importance to me as a "special day", so meals are generally similar to the rest of the week.

    We have a joint every Sunday, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, veg and gravy. It wouldn't be Sunday without it.

    It's probably about one in 3 weeks for us now and we have our main meal on Sunday about 6 pm.

    We had a really nice piece of lamb last weekend that we found on offer at one of the supermarkets but this weekend we are having a stir-fry this evening.

    We have to be very organized with our meals because of the lack of time we often have in the early evening to cook.

    We go round to my mum's most weeks for a Sunday roast. I am not a bad cook but, to be honest, wouldn't have clue where to start with Sunday dinner!!
