Sunday Dinner

Nothing smells like Sunday more than roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas, and rolls. Every Sunday without fail, my mom would make this meal. Sometimes we added a salad, but otherwise the menu never varied. It was delicious. It was one of the things I missed most about home when I went away to college and on my mission. In the past year, I have instated "Sunday Dinner" at my house. It's comfort food of the most comfortable kind. My family loves it. The Flower raves about my cooking. Mini-me clears her plate. Curly goes back for seconds. Honestly, nothing makes you feel better than your husband going back for seconds. So here's a toast to Sunday Dinner: may your roast be beefy and your potatoes mashed. Bon apetit.

So, do you do the same dinner each Sunday, or does your menu vary?

We sometimes do steak or chicken on the grill when the weather's nice. It gets harder to do it every Sunday when I'm on Jenny Craig. If you can take a break from highlighting, you can come over and eat with us one week :)

Goodness, you DO know how to make someone's mouth water. I, too, recall the Sunday roast beef dinners, only my mom would make Yorkshire pudding to go with it. Well, we're a generation apart on this now; and I somehow never got into the roast beef routine, unfortunately for my family. Lucky Curly to have married a gal with such good culinary talent (and good taste in men!).
Love, Mama-san

Shamefacedly I add to this blog: we had pizza for Sunday dinner, and our relative from Ohio was sorely disappointed.

We rarely do Sunday dinner. Naps are a top priority for me so we oftentimes do leftovers or "fend for yourself" meals. M grew up with big Sunday dinners, so I know it is hard on him, but I tell him all the time that he is welcome to cook for us. . . he doesn't seem to like that suggestion!
