Fajita Sunday”

“scatter kindness Anthony’s suggestion for Sunday dinner, Fajitas and nachos, Allie chimed in and said she would make steak egg rolls; not the typical food for Sunday but I loved the ideas. Allie asked if I would also make pizza because she loves the way the house smells when she walks in, she says it…

Sunday Sunday

“sweet little Sunday” I usually send out a text a few days before Sunday for ideas on what we should eat for dinner. Mia being the only one with an idea, asked for ribs. So I made ribs, a small “gravy” with pasta and roasted vegetables. Isaiah always prepares the ribs, and today he has…

Nostalgic Sunday Dinner

“…. and the leaves fall from the trees without regret….” Today is a good day to make the real Italian “gravy” made with braciola, which are thin slices of meat, typically pork, chicken, beef, or swordfish that are rolled as a roulade. My dad used to start his gravy this way for Sunday dinner, which…

A Beautiful Sunday in October

“today is going to be amazing” Since today will be a quiet Sunday, we decided to make an easy dinner. Although I say it is quiet, two out of four of my kids, my son-in-law and my three granddaughters are all eating over. The weather is perfect so the girls get to play outside while…

Another Beautiful Sunday

“Sunday is good for the soul” Weather in September goes from one extreme to the next. This past week we had 50° weather, today it’s 80°. I love the 4 seasons, but as everyone knows, fall is my favorite. Since I knew the weather was going to be warm, I couldn’t decide what to make…

Sunday – Time to close the Pool

“and all at once, summer collapsed into fall” It’s always sad to see summer leave, but for me fall is the most wonderful time of year. Everything about fall is wonderful, the smells, the crisp air, and the delicious food. Today we closed the pool; it’s both sad and exciting at the same time. Our…

Sunday’s Meatloaf

“good bye summer, hello autumn” This is the meatloaf I made on Sunday. I usually make my grandmothers version, which is totally different from your typical meatloaf; I will save that one for another day. I looked in my refrigerator to see what I had and this is what I came up with. I hope…

Sunday’s in September

I love everything about Autumn; the weather is perfect, the delicious comfort food, Halloween, Thanksgiving, football, and the excitement of getting ready for Christmas. When September comes around, I want to start decorating for Fall but I…
