A Sunday Roast.

Before Emilie came along, every Sunday you would find me in the kitchen cooking up a Sunday roast dinner. Whether it was Chicken, Beef, Pork or Turkey.. Without fail by 3pm we would be sat down eating mountains of food..

Then my temperamental little soul came along and honestly, just putting food on the table at the end of the day was an accomplishment, let alone a roast with all the trimmings.

Then last month after a request from James I made a Sunday dinner and we all sat down together around the table to eat. During the week with Anthony working we don't get to eat together. The kids eat first and then Anthony eats when he comes in and I just end up grazing throughout the day. That first Sunday though, whilst we were all sat down together James announced..

"This is lovely. We should do this every Sunday. I like eating with you all..."

So for the past four Sundays that is what we have done. I love waking up on a Sunday morning and putting the meat in the slow cooker and then waiting for those lovely smells to fill the house. I peel the potatoes and slice carrots whilst mixing up stuffing and rolling it into balls. It's therapeutic and even though by the time I've cooked it all and cleaned up the horrendous amounts of pots, pans and plates, I am tired..  However, I am also happy. There is nothing I like more than knowing that I have provided a nutritious meal for my family. I like that one time during the week where we all sit together. James chatters away whilst Emilie mushes more food into her hair than what actually makes it into her mouth.

I like to think about what it will be like in a few years time when Emilie is also chattering away or when they're both eager to help me cook. Sundays for us have become about battening down the hatches and family.
