A kind of heaven

You know (a term that I’ve picked up already in my short time back home) that you can’t beat a proper English Sunday roast dinner. Roast sirloin of beef, Yorkshire puds (I made ‘em), new spuds, carrots, cabbage and peas; accompanied by home made horse radish sauce and a gravy  blended from the meat juices, onions, garlic, carrots, celery and a drop of red wine; and on top of all that, in the company of my family; I am in a kind of heaven.

In fact I’ve enjoyed it so much I’m going for a nap, but I had to write this down first 🙂

  1. C’mon Winko. New spuds? Got to be roasties, surely? Preferably in goose fat. And where were the parsnips? We had roast gammon, with a honey glaze, and all that other stuff, but no Yorkshires. When I was a youngster, in Queen Victoria’s day, we had leftover Yorkshire pud as a sweet, served cold, with home-made strawberry jam. It tastes better than it sounds, believe me! OK, it was about 1958, but still a long time ago.

  2. Eddy, Hi! Thanks for coming over to see my Tiny Cabin build blog! You are my first follower, and left my first comment. 🙂 I appreciate the positive remark more than you know.

    I like trying recipes from England and thereabouts – filling, generally inexpensive, and tasty! So far the most unexpectedly good dinner was fish pie….

  3. I haven’t had roast beef in over 30 years, but reading your account of it…I could almost taste it. Being with family makes it even better.

  4. I’m jealous…As amazingly mouthwatering as that sounds I fear I wouldnt have been able to eat it today -not in the mood for ‘proper food’ and my son is away so…my sunday diet consisted of 3 cups of coffee, a packet of cheap jelly sweets, 8 caramel digestives and a slice of spicy meat pizza…my diet is so healthly! lol
