Pot Roast Sundays @CanadianBeef #LoveCDNBeef


We try to make Sunday more of a family day in our house.  Every day is a busy day on the farm, so Sundays are great for spending a few hours of quality time together.  This means having a leisurely dinner together. I guess I should say "supper", because if you're a farmer, most likely "dinner" is normally your earlier meal and the main meal of the day. Even after eight years of living on the Island, I am constantly being corrected on this. Coming from the city, I've always used "dinner" and "supper" interchangeably. My question to my husband and my mother-in-law is always, "So, you mean dinner is lunch?"

Okay, we don't always have pot roasts on Sundays. There are so many other things we can make with beef. Here are but a few:



All of these recipes can be found here on the blog under recipes. For more beef recipes, visit the Canadian Beef website and peruse their many delicious beef recipes.

{Here's a question for you}
I remember doing a quiz from a magazine when I was a teen in the 90s. One of the questions was "What's your favourite food and three reasons why?"

You're supposed to describe the way the food makes you feel. Leave me your favourite food and three reasons, and come back tomorrow. I'll tell you what it's "supposed" to mean. It's actually quite funny!

* Edited to include: Your favourite food is supposed to symbolize what kind of person you are attracted to! I had to laugh when my friend said his favourite food was poutine because it's cheap, easy, cheesy, and greasy!

I am drooling at all the food in your pictures. Yum. My favourite meal is Roast Beef with potatoes, carrots, onions and celery, gravy and Yorkshire pudding. YUM!
