Do any of you plan a special dinner each week for Sunday? Or a special Sunday dinner routine, for example: eating in the dining room, bringing out the china, or just making time to eat together?
For the past few years, I somehow gravitated to making the fancier meal of the week on Sundays. I think it was when meat prices started going through the roof, and I had to keep our food budget in check.
For awhile there, we ate every Sunday meal in the dining room, but we have not done that in a long time. (I'm not sure why.) Oh wait! I remember. It was just easier to feed the baby in the kitchen where her high chair was located rather then moving her (and her messes) to the dining room.
Where we are definitely not like this on Sundays...
... I still am old fashioned in the sense where I enjoy our Sunday family dinners even if we are in shorts and t-shirts at the table. I like cooking and baking on Sundays, and have been trying to save Sundays as our dessert day, (keeping healthy snacks for the rest of the week.)
I usually grocery shop on Thursday, when it is most convenient for me. Do any of you have a regular shopping day? The one thing I love about making the menu is planning for Sunday dinner (and dessert!)
This Sunday I am planning on making Beef Brisket, recipe here.
David's Cole Slaw, recipe here.
And for dessert, it will be provided by Miss Ester who wants to try a new dark chocolate chip cookie recipe. (Yes, I'll post it ;)
So what is for Sunday dinner at your house this week?
