Sunday Dinner

I always remember Sunday dinner being a special occasion when I was growing up. I don’t know how my mom did it, but we always came home from the morning service at church to a delicious meal.
The menu varied each week. It was lunch time, but we had dinner. Sometimes there were guests and sometimes it was at a restaurant.
This is something that I have tried to do with my own family. In Japan, it doesn’t work. Sunday lunch is always with the church people. Once a month is potluck and the other Sundays, it is “bring your own bento.” At 2:30 we have an English service, then music practice, etc.
I really miss Sunday dinner, so I decided to do something about it! On Thursday evenings, I fix a special dinner. The first time I did it, my husband was trying to guess whose birthday it was! HA! I told him it was Sunday dinner! Today is Thursday. My favorite Sunday dinner is in the crockpot…roast beef (a rare treat here) with carrots, onions and potatoes. There will be gravy and a few sides and I’m thinking about making an apple crisp. Would you like to be a guest at our table for Sunday dinner????

    Oh, yes, can I be a guest?! My mouth is watering thinking about my mom's Sunday pot roast with carrots, potatoes, gravy, and biscuits! Our Sunday isn't quite as packed as yours (no English worship), but there sure isn't time for a meal like mom prepared for Sunday dinner. Thanks for stirring up wonderful memories!

    That sounds like a neat tradition to have a special Thursday meal.We do have a big dinner for lunch on Sundays and a big sit-down breakfast as well — that's the only day we have breakfast all together because, with one shower, we're usually eating in shifts. It can be tiring — sometimes I think the Israelites had it right in not cooking on the Sabbath so it was more restful. But I do enjoy it. And once lunch/dinner is over and the kitchen cleaned up, I'm done for the day — Sunday nights everyone heats leftovers or makes sandwiches or whatever.
