Besides morning tea and of course the barbeque, another mealtime custom is Sunday lunch. It seems to be one of the Brit customs that has survived the colonial period. Not unlike the Sunday dinners of my childhood, except that it's not preceded by church-going, and it doesn't always feature a big piece of dead animal, at least not among people with whom I've shared it. Wikipedia says it's aka Sunday roast - but dead animals are optional. The important ingredients are food and friends, and perhaps a nice bottle or two of wine. Lovely way to spend a Sunday arvo - that's "afternoon" for those of you who don't know Strine.
