Is it sunday or sunduh?

My wife and I have this ongoing battle over the word sundae. She always pronounces it sunDUH while I say it’s sunDAY because when they were first made, one could only get the ice-cream treat on Sunday. She says I’m nuts - I say she’s kinda douchey. Who’s correct - anyone know?

Perenna, you really cannot do better than this: http://www.onelook.com/

Pay attention, though, because although they give you results from a couple dozen possible dictionaries, a few are of purely historical interest.

(cough) Ok, the matter at hand. "SundEE??" I've only EVER heard "sunday." I bet the "sundee" pronunciation is from out in the Northwest US, but truly I haven't a clue.
