This just came up in conversation in the Funtime foodie household. There is a come dine with me on the telly and one of the contestants entertained the others by cooking a Sunday roast and it felt a bit weird. We regularly have a Sunday roast, usually about once a week 🙂 and it’s a nice time for all of us to spend together. Sometimes, my mother in law who is close family to us invites us for one and it is a great occasion where we often are force fed too much wine and food and throughly enjoy the experience. The common denominator is family with the roast. I would actually find it strange and a slight violation to have a none family roast. There are so many environments you can enjoy with your friends, pub, evening meal invite, whatever you have fun doing during the day, but there is a side to me that feels the Sunday roast is a special time for a busy family to spend quality time together and the roast dinner symbolises this.
So, if ever you have an invite for a Sunday roast dinner, I reckon the person giving you the invite is paying the ultimate compliment about your relationship. They see you as family 🙂
