I was clearing out my cupboards today and came across a 3 tier steamer.  When Mom lived with me during the last years of her life I always used the steamer for the vegetables, especially with the traditional Sunday lunch.  Living on my own I no longer bother.  Do other members use a steamer when cooking vegetables?

Yes we have one Min, it was one of lidl's middle aisle bargains a couple of years ago. Does anyone still use a pressure cooker these days? I'm sure we got a 'prestige hi dome' one as a wedding present.
Ha ha, charade you are...

I haven't got a steamer my veg goes in a pan or the microwave, no pressure cooker either, but I do have an air fryer and that's great  !

I have one Minniemouse and must start using it again because it makes greens tasted much better.

That's a great idea Scrumpy, I think I'll try that.

We have a roast most Sundays, beef, or lamb , some times its change then it could be a nice chicken pie, with roast potatoes and vegetables and all the trimmings, as their are four of us for dinner, my son, and daughter,.

so  our Sunday roast does, and can vary,
on other occasions I'm partial to a nice couple of pork chops roasted  in apple sauce , plus roast potatoes ,vegetables, etc,

Regarding pressure cookers, my wife has several, but in recent times depending on say really cold  weather then out comes the slow cooker instead, then we could end up having a nice meaty stew instead , not a roast  but very enjoyable never the less,.

Alf,  yeah I think we are traditionalists, we also have a roast on a Sunday, for me Sunday would not b the same without a roast, and then more often than not, a kip in an armchair.

For those of you sitting down to a roast - how many at table? Once the children had left home, Veronica and I didn't think it worthwhile to have a roast just for the two of us, and obviously that is even more the case now that it is just me

Mike it just a question of having a balanced diet. We are both on our own so I know how easy it is not to eat correctly. Sunday I had a full Sunday roast for a change, Brisk, mixed veg, roast & mash potatoes and Yorkshire puddings.

I enjoy a roast dinner,  I'm also on my own  but that doesn't stop me enjoying one of life's little pleasures.
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life Mike.

When you say a roast - if you are on your own - how big a roast? The amount I eat, a roast pigeon would be adequate portion-wise.

And on the question of ready meals, when Veronica was so ill in December 2017 and her sister Mary was up here I laid in three frozen turkey dinners for us as cooking would have been a distraction. In the event, sdaly, Veronica never came back from hospital and those turkey dinners stayed in the freezer for a while. Mary came up at the Easter and we had one each, and I had the last one a month or two later. OK, they weren't as good as the turkey dinners Veronica had cooked over the years, but they were very palatable. Thinking about it, Veronica used to make gorgeouas stuffing to accompany the bird - the ready stuffing wasn't a patch of her's
