Sunday Dinner 1 June

Growing up, we always had Sunday dinner at 2pm. My grandparents usually visited, bringing pastries for dessert.
Once I had my own kids, we ate a bit later on Sunday. My exhusband never understood the early dinner time, either. I'm always nostalgic for it...

Today, it's dinner at 2, like it used to be. (then off to the train station so Lou can get back to Philly)

Rigatoni with meatballs and sausage, with big dollops of ricotta cheese.
Tossed salad with oil and vinegar
Garlic bread
More of the chocolate roll with the raspberries and cream cheese mousse.

just turned on the computer to see what's for dinner tonight and didn't see your post. thanks for starting [now that my eyes are working].

it'll be who knows what for me. too early to think about eating after babysitting little guy last night and now sleeping due to their darling bulldog snoring in my ear all night and still

Going to my niece's graduation party. I believe salmon to be on the menu but don't know what else. It's beautiful day here and I am looking forward to being with the family.

Snapper with some Baja Fried Rice and Guacamole. And of course, a Cadillac Margarita!

Music will be turned up - how can people eat without music???

I want to go to Katie E's, I've never had chicken fried steak! Not a real big seller up here.

I have a little slab of country style pork ribs. So, rubbed them down with Herbes de Provence, in the oven with little new poratoes, on a bed of thick cut vidallia onion, OO, S&P. I'll try ( note the word try!) to make a sauce with Marsala and cream.
