What do others have on a Sunday


We have a good old English roast, even though we are in France

Roast if eating out (I'm rubbish at cooking roast dinner) - we had roast beef and potatoes, with stuffing, yorkshire pud and veggies today in a local Inn that's been there since the 15th century (think it's changed a lot over time though tbh). The city has had all its roads closed due to a sporting event, so it was quiet and easy to get a table last minute.

I like that place as it also sells a lovely damask roase flavour sparkly water. I'm easily pleased lol.

Oink oink.

I do love a roast dinner, probably lamb is my favourite with mint sauce, the French find this extraordinary as they drink mint and think us English are mad putting mint on meat haha

I hated Sundays growing up...and Sundays meant roast dinner (which I don't actually mind)...but as an adult I never do a roast dinner as the association is too strong. Today for dinner we're going to be having chicken shwarma with chickpeas and courgette 😊

Seeing as it's only ~8am here, we're still in breakfast mode. This morning, it's 'huevos con chorizo', eggs with spicy chorizo (Mexican sausage). Our local grocery store makes the chorizo, and it's much better than the pre-packaged product. I'm having it with tortillas, pico de gallo, and Mexican 'crema'. On elf my favorite breakfasts. I don't yet know what dinner will have in store.

Hard to beat a nice roast cooking all day in the crock pot. Reminds me, we are about due.
A nice sober day wished for all,

Sorry it's actually spelt shawarma (I missed out an 'a'). Mummyto2 it's basically a chicken kebab...the chicken is marinated with middle eastern spices and thinly sliced when cooked. It should be cooked on a vertical spit but needless to say I won't be doing that at home lol

Seeing as I'm alone, it's been coffee and cigs thus far today.
Growing up it was always pasta and sauce that cooked all day on the stove. Tons of bread and cheese, sausage and and meatballs a giant salad and icy Cokes.
Can't eat like that anymore.. 😉
I miss carbs 😵

I'm smoking a pork belly today! Not a main course since that would be way too rich, but I smoke them for 4 hours, then cut the belly into cubes and sear all sides on my outdoor griddle. Needless to say, the neighbors love to happen on over right about then. Love grilling, and it hopefully will take my mind off life for a bit.

It's so neat reading the different meals people have depending on where they are in the world. It's 9:45 am here in california (i just got up 15 minutes ago, yay for weekends lol). We'll probably get some Mexican food after church as it's my favorite. Street tacos and chile rellenos are my two fav.
