Sunday Sunday

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Every Friday is a cause for the majority of us to celebrate but I find that everyday is or should be a cause to celebrate! I enjoy Sunday because I get to cook healthy food & the food choices of my family & combine them to make them all happy! Today, I cooked ribeye steak, chicken breast, chicken thighs, broccoli, twice baked potatoes & spaghetti & meatballs.

I know what you're sayin, "Why on earth are you cooking all that food for?" Well, I found that I now I cook enough so that we have food Sunday, Monday & Tuesday & maybe stretch it to Wednesday. I only desire to turn the stove on twice a week & Sunday & maybe Wednesday are all I got. I some times make them tacos or fries or bring home take out. Even before the recession started I cut back on McDonalds & Burger King & became Queen of the Kitchen!

Now my kids call me at work & ask what am I cooking & can I cook them this or that. That is so amazing to me because my mom did cook all the time & I didn't have a happy meal until I was a teenager. I know this is shocking but most of my weight came after the birth of my 2 youngest sons. Men, they want it all & they get it! LOL I find that Sunday dinners are such a great time for us to come together after a day of worship service & hang out & have fun. I hope you all have a tradition or you should start one?! In any event, Happy Sunday, go forth & embrace the upcoming week!
Remember to dance

& also we are here to support one another!

Blessings & Enjoy EVERYDAY!

    we always have sunday dinners - i don't cook for the week but i do clean and season my chicken (or whatever the meat that week is) so that all i have to do is take it out and cook it.

    mcdonalds was a treat when i was growing up. we had it maybe a few times in the summer on the way back from some road trip. my parents were more into something like a real dinner so more often we'd have kfc.

    i have always loved the idea of sunday dinners & am jealous of families that have those big sunday dinners after church. my grandma used to do that but by the time i came along she didn't live nearby.

    nowadays, my family still isn't too nearby but i'd like to start some sort of tradition...even if it's just something *i* do on my own...a little "cc tradition"

    great blog, dee!!! mwah emoticon

    Sunday is our one day we are almost always together - yesterday that was not the case emoticon I did cook three different things. One of those meals we will be having this evening when we will all be together emoticon You never know around our house. I usually do alot of cooking in a few hours on Sunday so all I have to do is put in on to warm up during the week - a great time saver!!!

    Have a wonderful week!!!! emoticon

    Sounds like you had a busy weekend. It is hot in my neck of the woods. So I cook a Sunday meal and tell them eat up cause the kitchen is closed after dinner. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great blog - It's only me & the cat, but I cook ALOT on Sunday myself. Then I can have lunches & dinner for the rest of the week!! It's my way to really relax & I'm a great cook.
    Today I made grilled chicken, pork w/cabbage & peaches, & veal piccata, & saltimbocca.
    Got my blueberries, strawberries & pineapple all frozen. I'm good to go.
    Now it's time for a little TV - Miss Honey loves the animal channel & off to bed. Need to be up at 3:30am workout time is 4:30 Hugs!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great blog! I like to cook and eat a family dinner on Sunday after church also. It is the one day we are all at home at the same time for a sit down meal. I cooked baked chicken, cauliflower and reheated an African fried rice we had from yesterday. Made some ice tea for drinks. No dessert today. But I made some wheat and dairy free muffins - high fiber and little sugar - kids won't eat them but I froze them for me. I enjoyed your page. Thanks for the comment on my blog. See ya later!
