Sunday Family Dinner


"You know what we do every Sunday?"

It was the voice of a teenager from  New York City
talking to one of her teenage peers.

"We have Sunday dinner  ~~~  I  just love it!"

If you want the images to stop - Just put your mouse over the image.

Some Picture Ideas for a Sunday Dinner

BBQ, Roast Turkey, Turducken, Pumpkin Pie, Corn On the Cob, Apple Pie, Lobster, Oysters Rockerfeller, Pancakes, Chocolate Cake, Clam Chowder, Strawberries and Cream, Fried Chicken, Shrimps, Homemade Ice Cream, Roast Duck, Hamburgers ...

Today, everybody in the family works and there is very little time set aside when the family just sits down to enjoy doing things together. 

The above conversation was a pleasant surprise especially with the marketing pressures that are put upon our society for instant food and enjoyment.

Maybe it is time again to rethink our priorities and bring that focus around a family Sunday dinner based upon food grown and processed around us.

 The aroma of real food cooking in an oven or stovetop certainly is preferred to  that of the pizza man showing up at your door or eating snack food in a car.

It's now Winter (Corned Beef and Cabbage, Salmon, Deep Fried Chicken, Meat Loaf , Pot Roast, Turducken, Cole Slaw )  and a great time to invite friends and family over for Sunday dinner and add in a little Wine and Beer Tasting.

You know the event where you invite your friends and family to get together and chat, the kids are in the basement, someone brings the drinks, you bring out the appetizers, sit back to discuss movies seen, books read, places been, past holidays and provide opinions on the local  and world problems.

It could be pot luck, bring a bottle of wine, some cold beer and everyone brings a little of this and a little of that with the host supplying the friendly ambiance of course. 

If you don't want to cook, think about ordering takeout Chinese Food.

Here are some of our suggestions for bringing to the dinner.... Lobster Tails, Baked Ham, Potato and Leek Soup, Shrimp, Corn on the Cob,  Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Roast Goose, Roast Turkey, Cole Slaw, Irish Stew ..

     If you are cooking vegetables and want to make them as tasty and full of nutrients as possible - buy them in season from your local

   Farmers ' Markets in Eastern Ontario and then steam them. - Yum!!

For B.B.Q. season! Here is a simple and very efficient way to prevent the food from sticking to the grill:

Purchase a spray bottle (at the dollar store) and fill up with olive oil or canola oil to spray on the grill once it is hot. Remember that olive and canola oils are non saturated fats and are a very healthy choice. Happy grilling!
