Closed Sunday Roasts Rule For Women Shloer Giveaway Ends 30th May


Sunday roast lunch is a big part of a lot of our weekends, it brings us all together, feeds our eyes, stomachs and as Paige says we all are so busy in the week, its a chance to be together. For a teen she constantly surprises me as she likes us to eat at the table so we can all talk about our day. Then by the end of the meal we often end up hanging around the table for longer. Seems its more of a woman thing so perhaps that is why she insists on it as much as I. I am lucky in that Chris loves cooking a roast, so I get to relax a bit too.

Shloer carried out a nationwide survey which is pretty interesting, have a read and if you stay until the end, you will spot a giveaway!

·        75% of women agree that the traditional Sunday roast lunch is still important
·        Women check their Facebook and emails on Sunday more than men 

Traditionally a day of rest, Sundays have changed significantly thanks to the wealth of choice we now have at our fingertips.  In a recent survey published as part of their‘Love your Shloer Sunday’ campaign – the makers of the sparkling juice drink, Shloer, asked 2,000 British men and women how they spend their Sundays.

Food is the ultimate way to warm the nation’s heart, and Mum's Sunday roast is still enjoyed at least once a month by three quarters of those surveyed. This much loved British dish is cherished by a notable 75% of women of all ages keeping the Sunday tradition alive in the UK.  The great British roast dinner has been passed down the generations and shows the importance of sharing a meal with family and friends on a weekly basis.

A Shloer spokesperson said, “It’s wonderful to see that Sundays still hold a special place in our hearts.  The Sunday roast is a well-loved tradition that has brought British families and their friends together for years.”

Another addition to the Sunday ritual is checking social media and email accounts.  The survey showed that a whopping 78% of females check their online accounts up to three times a day on a Sunday.

Historian Dominic Sandbrook comments, “How people spend their Sundays changed most dramatically when the Sunday shopping law was passed in 1994.  This really opened up the different types of Sundays that we see today. What was once a day for doing very little and staying at home can now be spent doing many different things.  Whether it is spending time with family and friends, relaxing at home, shopping, eating out or having some time to yourself, people have more options today and enjoy doing different things with different people.

A spokesperson from Shloer concluded, “We’re really lucky to have so many ways that we can spend a Sunday but we still need to try keep Sundays special and make it a day that family and friends can share together. With busy lifestyles and lots of commitments, it is even more important to enjoy time with the people we care about; Sundays are the perfect day for this!”

  16. I love having a lazy Sunday where you take your time in the morning with breakfast, getting ready, reading the Sunday papers. Take the kids out to the park or for a walk/cycle in the afternoon before I put on the steak pie we get from the local butchers. We then sit down as a family and have a nice meal with all the trimmings. Total Bliss!!

    I love Sundays because they are generally a day for mooching about the house, mooching about the shops, church, going out for coffee and cake. My favourite Sunday memory growing up has to be going to have waffles and ice cream after church with my mom - I was always up and dressed by 8.30am!

  27. Have to say we don't do Sunday lunch anymore, everyone is out & about now, seeing friends, going racing ( one of my boys does F2 sidecar racing he's the one throwing himself around in the sidecar) etc, I was buying a piece of meat out of shopping tradition & at first it wasn't getting eaten then used for sandwiches for the next day. So I now insist if you are in this country & don't have your own home then I expect you at my table for Christmas, New Year & Easter, they came back with aslong as you make your Lemon Meringue Pie for afters they agree.
    So thats fine by me no slaving over a hot cooker on a lovely sunny day. If theres enough around I get a piece of meat out of the freeze & do the works if not its something "simples" - sorry had to say it!
