I have fond childhood memories of Sunday dinners.
Dinner was almost always served at 5:15 pm and it consisted of pot roast, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and a slice of pie with a small scoop of ice cream. We would all sit around the table discussing the events of the weekend and our finalizing plans for the upcoming week.
These days, I live far from my immediate family. However, I have remained resolute in my efforts to continue the tradition of Sunday dinner.
Here are a few suggestions for creating a great Sunday dinner:
1. Keep it simple, especially if you are cooking for just one or two people.
For example, a simple menu of pasta, salad, and a scoop of sorbet are tasty options for Sunday dinner.
2. Host a once a month, Sunday potluck meal.
Food brings us together and during this tough economy spending quality time with friends and family is very important.
3. Make enough food for lunch the next day.
