Archetypal Sunday Tea dishes


#1
  • soft-boiled egg and soldiers
  • beans/spaghetti hoops on toast
  • cheese on toast
  • toastie of some description

Have I missed anything?


#2

the still beating hearts of your enemies.


#3
  • Tea

#4

For avoidance of doubt, it’s perfectly fine to call it tea if you had your main meal at lunchtime.


#5

Nah.


#6

Fish fingers.


#7

This is a bit Old Boards, don’t you think?


#8

Yah.


#9

Yep, good call.


#10

This thread makes no sense


#11

thought these were archetypal lazy midweek tea dishes


#12

It makes perfect sense. It’s traditional to have a main meal at lunchtime on a Sunday, so the evening meal is typically a light meal. Well, it usually is for me.


#13

Tea is the main meal, you’re on about supper


#14

Hmmmmmmm generally if I’ve had a big Sunday lunch I won’t have dinner. Maybe I’ll have a giant pudding of some sort…

ALLO PUDDIN’

I’m pretty-much incapable skipping meals! The only real exception is if I’ve had a big cooked breakfast - in which case I’ll possibly skip lunch or maybe have a slice of cake for afternoon tea. Even if I’ve eaten a colossal Sunday roast, I’ll probably have some toast (alright Des’ree) in the evening.

you don’t have tea on sunday

you have dinner between 2 and 4.30 and then pudding a bit later

these are teas you have on a wednesday or thursday ffs (monday is leftovers, tuesday and wednesday you still put in a bit of effort but my thursday you’re clutching at the oven chips. then friday is takeaway or frozen pizza, obviously)


#18

None of these are main meals. Would you have your main meal in the middle of the day on a Wednesday or Thursday?


#19

You’ve missed out the Fray Bentos pies in my dad and brother’s meal schedule.

Also, friday is fish and chips, and saturday is takeaway. Learn the schedule.

I treat Sunday as any other day and have dinner in the evening.

But as a kid we’d have dinner earlier and a light tea. Crumpets was my tea of choice.
