The death of the Sunday roast:
How just one in 50 families enjoy
once-traditional weekend meal

Daily Mail (UK), by Craig Mackenzie

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/29/2013 2:32:53 PM

Once it was the only day of the week when the family would all sit down together for a meal. But enjoying a Sunday roast dinner is now a thing of the past with just one in 50 Britons tucking in every week, a new study has revealed. Research suggests the traditional family meal is dying out with only two per cent sitting down together, while nearly half of us (43 per cent) eat our dinner on the sofa. Nearly a third (32 per cent) prefer quick meals that take less than 20 minutes to prepare and cook. Researchers found

The Sunday roast has disappeared from our house as well and not because we don´t eat together. It´s as simple as who can afford a roast beef or leg of lamb these days.

As the article winds down it becomes a commercial for Welsh Lamb and its promotion of British Roast Dinner Week.

Well, I for one have a roast in right now. Smells good. I´ll add mashed potatoes and brown gravy and the last of the corn on the cob. I also made homemade bread yesterday. As a kid we always had a big Sunday meal and I just keep going with that tradition. I must admit that I am cooking for three and not a house full of kids My roast was on sale so it wasn´t too expensive and I will use it for more than one meal. But groceries are expensive and it could cost an arm and a leg to do it up right if you had several mouths to feed. But remember we are constantly being told that there is no inflation and grocery buying is not a problem. Does anyone in DC understand what it is like to live in the "real world"?

I think the dwindling of Sunday dinner has to do with the dwindling of church attendance by families. We came home from church to find the roast and vegetables in the oven perfectly done and ready to be enjoyed. Or, my mother would fry a couple of chickens. My brothers and I preferred the fried chicken. Sunday church attendance isn´t a widespread habit in this nation any more and we have suffered from the lack.

I think the fading of Sunday dinner may also be in our hearts. Neither my mother nor grandmother were great cooks, but boy could they bake! And make candy. I find I can put together a great meal in under 30 minutes. I think we have a better selection of foods and prep methods today. Families get together after sports on Saturday. I have some unpleasant memories of family dinners as well. I think its important to cherish what we have rather than pine for what was an illusion for many.

#3, Washington is always in its own bubble, especially the Democrats. The mystery is why the MSM is so slavish? Don´t they have homes to heat, mouths to feed and gas tanks to fill? Are their kids somehow landing great jobs righ out of college? They don´t gain anything by being the Democrats´ propaganda machine, but yet they are, despite all the hardships they must feel and see. It´s crazy!

In our family, it was fried chicken. If during hunting season, it might be quail, squirrel, or rabbit. There was no Sunday evening meal as Mother had already fixed one major meal for the day, Sunday evening was for grabbing leftovers, and popcorn, lots of popcorn.

Every family meal should be as much of an occasion as you can make it. How much trouble is it to set the dinner table nicely and prepare a healthy, tasty meal? My mother managed it with four kids underfoot, and we all carry on that tradition. And we work.

One of my best childhood memories...pancakes after Sunday Mass and then ´roast beast´ with mashed potatoes for dinner, followed by The Wonderful World of Disney at 7 pm. Grandma would come over and bring See´s Candies. Ah...good times.

I have a good memory of preparing/serving a beef roast just about every Sunday, after church, paying only about $2.00 that served 15 people - myself, husband, 12 children. Even had leftovers with lots of gravy and mashed potatoes or bone and meat for soup - always enjoyed leftovers and thankful for them. We never charged anything, but paid our bills and only bought what we could afford.

Times have changed! We pay too much and get so little! Would that we could return to the 50s and 60s, when God was honored/obeyed and we chose to live according to His Word, praying for our leaders, trusting them to only do what was right!

When we trusted God, He supplied our needs, just as His Holy Word confirms.

Today we are "dependent" upon government for everything from cradle to the grave!

About time we stand up for God´s will/way!

America has lots its way. Political-correctness has replaced good common sense and God´s favor which is promised to those who obey Him.

Most of the government laws are contrary to God´s will. We have lost our innocence and chosen to live independently of God´s will/way!

Today is a wake-up call for America to remember what we took for granted and now make a stand for the righteousness we once experienced!

Bring back the Sunday roast, shared with family/friends!

Dinner together is very much alive and well here about 4-5 nights a week and almost always on Sundays. We have fun together at these meals. I recommend it as nourishment for the body and soul.

And as long as we´re having a combination nostalgia and kvetch-fest, don´t you yearn for the days when people dressed up to go to church? Actually, the vast majority of people in my neck of the woods do dress nicely for Sunday services, and for temple on Friday, but sweet heaven, I´ve been some places where people turn up looking as if they´d just cleaned the garage. And kids still in their pajamas? Please.

Anyone try Saturday morning breakfast? Bacon or sausage and eggs with hash browns and toast. Pre-cook the sausage and hashbrowns during the week. Breakfast can be done in 15 minutes.

When my 2 kids were in school (grad ´02 and ´04) we had their friends stay for dinner at times. It shocked them that we actually sat down together and ate dinner as a family. I cannot imagine not cooking a meal. Even with just the two of us now I almost always have a planned meal every night. And try to have the entire 4 generations here at least once/month - my 87 yr old parents, daughter, son-in-law, grandson, and son. Sometimes have son in for dinner during the week since he drives right past on his way home from work.

We as a nation are poorer spiritually for not sitting down together as families and eating together, whenever, even if it is not a big Sunday roast.

We had brunch after church when I was growing up. We´d often stop by the donut shop on the way home and it would be the side for the scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage. Sometimes my dad would make corned beef hash and eggs (my favorite!). Then we´d all go our different ways and usually meet back up for soup and sandwiches at supper.

We don´t do that. We do go to church together, but meal time is scattered. It´s just the way it is.

I stopped back to let you know the beef roast turned out tender and juicy but the gravy was a bit salty. The bread was great. We will have apple pie a bit later. I think fried chicken next weekend. My son´s fiance is always amazed that I cook. No one had ever cooked for her before. It was drive-in carry-out or microwave. Now that schools no longer have Home Ec I doubt most kids could crack an egg. If you ask them if they can cook they say yes. "I can make microwave popcorn". Get dressed up, pop a roast in the oven, go to church, house smells good when you get home, have choc. cake and ice cream, enjoy your family. Happy Sunday to everyone.

When I was a kid Mom used to make a Sunday dinner every week, and started working on it right after church. Every now and then it was a real treat to have a standing rib roast with Yorkshire pudding (pastery made in the juices) and with her home-made pies, boy was it ever good!
As a father blessed with a great wife, we always had home cooked dinners all through the week with the kids. We don´t do the roast on Sundays, but - #18 - I usually made breakfast on Saturdays and/or Sundays - eggs, bacon, or buckwheat pancakes, belgian waffles, omelets, etc. We didn´t realize how unusual that was until the kids told us that most families eat out, and fast-food it a lot at that!
It was an important part of the family to gather together and talk, and still is. As a result the kids know how to plan, shop and cook for themselves and enjoy it.

I live alone and I still cook because it´s not only more tasty, and I can control the fat and sodium content but it is far cheaper. That roast becomes a week´s worth of sandwiches, homemade hash and the bone goes into the stockpot for homemade soup. Those premade microwave entrees can cost $4-5 each and some of the pasts based entrees often have less than $.50 worth of ingredients in them- if you know how to cook.

No. 7: that was my experience as well. Mama cooked exactly 19 meals per week: 3 a day Monday through Saturday and Sunday dinner. Boxed cereal Sunday morning and fend for yourself Sunday night--leftover Jello, cake, coffee cake, pie. Sunday was pot roast or roast poultry of some kind, with half a dozen sides.
All this was comforting because it was predictable! Heavenly!! Somebody said it before me, and I paraphrase: Hell is a place where nobody´s cooking and nobody´s home.

Usually roast w/potatoes and carrots right out of the oven after church, which was oh so good. But my favorite this time of year was to come home after the Sunday drive in the country to see the leaves to mom´s kidney stew or navy bean soup.
I still have church and dinners, pancakes for breakfast once a week, bacon and eggs once within every 10 days.
It has not died, it´s just that some people don´t know how to live.

That´s ´cause Sunday roast has been replaced by Sunday grill´n! Fire-up the briquettes and get the meats ready! Lather squash, ears of corn, and potatoes in butter and wrap them in aluminum foil, then put them on the highest rack in the back for a long cook with the meats. Yum!

#16, same at our house. The young people we occasionally host are agog that the whole family sits down and eats dinner together. Several have commented that in their families, everyone either gets their own takeout or nukes something in the microwave.

In our house, you´re expected to be at the dinner table unless you have school or work or a social obligation. It might be ordinary fare, but we eat together as a family almost every night.

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
