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????
