When I was growing up, Sunday dinner was my favourite meal of the week. More often than not, at least one set of grandparents was with us which always made it feel like a party. We ate in the dining room on the good china and there was always dessert.
Sunday dinner was roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy, roast chicken, pork roast or lamb chops. I would be hard-pressed to pick my favourite because each meal had its own particular character and yummy-ness!
With Simon and Zachary away for a week, I am down two men in my house which makes dinner 50% easier. I made Max and Michael a nice steak dinner with the requested trimmings. And while their dinner was cooking I was preparing my own Sunday dinner. But instead of roasting, steaming, boiling, baking or frying, I was juicing my dinner.
- 1 cucumber
- 2 lemons
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 thumb ginger
- 2 small celery stalks
- 1/4 tray of sprouts
My recipe is borrowed from my raw foodie friend, Loren, and it is absolutely delicious. I maybe went a bit overboard on the ginger but it’s got a good little kick to it.
And to finish? Rather than pie, cake, cookies or ice cream, I am going to indulge in an heirloom tomato that I bought at a local farm today with an avocado and some cold-pressed olive oil.
Not sure what my grandparents would have to say about this Radical departure from tradition, but I know what I say…yum!
Happy Sunday! 🙂
