Sunday Roasts are a comforting & nourishing reminder of those long & uncomplicated Sundays when I was a kid. Actually, my memory of Sunday lunches was all about slow, take-your-time-in-the-kitchen type of meals. From roasts & baked potatoes to a gently cooked Osso Bucco bubbling on the stove for 3 hours, our meals were rituals & highlights of the week, aimed at bringing us all together as a family. In fact, our Sunday lunches started at around 12 noon & went well into the late afternoon (almost evening). Eventually, the table was cleared to make room for a light & effortless supper.
“Nothing beats a cosy lunch with friends, while talking about life”
Today, we’re living faster, more convoluted lives & eating on the run. Without a doubt, this leaves us with very little time to enjoy the simple ritual of coming together & connecting. Our lives are more complicated & intricate. Our thoughts are constantly in motion. In spite of the fact that we live in a world of high tech computers & machines designed to free up our time, the contrary is actually happening. Actually, we are, instead, far busier than ever. we live in a world of high tech computer. Working in the corporate world between Monday to Friday, I’m constantly on the go, working long hours & sometimes late nights. I’m pretty sure that’s the case for most of us these days.
With this intention in mind, since starting Sunday Calm, I’ve made a point to slow down, drop the pace a notch & make time for myself & the things that are pleasurable to me. In fact, I’ve set out to ensure that I enjoy my weekends without any feelings of rush. Needless to say, there are still many ample manic and rushed moments between Monday to Friday. On the whole, it is my intention to bring back a little piece of my simple childhood into my present. It is that gentler, simpler life that I miss today.
“I share my meal ideas so that I can encourage more people to gather around the table & bond.”
Whether you have children, work 9-5, run a business or do all of the above, time is always scarce. I’m always looking for super simple, speedy weeknight meals that are wholesome & nutritious for the family. Also, they MUST be satisfying, tasty &, above all, nutritious.
I’m always seeking new ideas & thinking up ways to better manage my time. Part of juggling the already very limited time I have, I need to be creative in the kitchen & make extra batches of food. After all, extra servings means I have an extra meal on hand, stored in the freezer and ready to be enjoyed. Furthermore, it also means I have a packed lunch, ready to bring to work the next day. Basically, the problem of what to have for lunch is solved. I’d like to share more about this in future posts, but today, I want to share with you a firm Sunday favourite.
The weekend is upon us, yeahh! For this reason, I thought you would enjoy what I consider to be the ultimate Lamb Roast recipe. It’s the perfect way to slow things down this weekend, to loosen you up & get you in the zen relaxed mode after what I’m sure was a long & busy week.
