Sunday Dinner, May 27, 2007

After much searching of freezer and pantry I have made an important decision regarding Sunday Dinner at Diane's Place.

I'm making a double batch of homemade chili. I'll make some cornbread when I get home from church if we end up eating here. There's always the possibility that I'll end up eating out somewhere, but the chili won't ruin. If it's not eaten for Sunday Dinner it will still be good on Monday or for supper one night next week. I usually make a double batch when I make chili so I can freeze some for later anyway.

What are your plans for Sunday Dinner this week? Are you cooking? What's on the menu? Going to Mom's or Grandma's? What's she serving?

I know a lot of people have special plans this weekend because of Memorial Day and I'd like to hear about those plans too if you'd be willing to share them with me.

I think that's about it for this edition of Diane's Sunday Dinner.

I would like to thank the men and women of our Armed Forces who served in the past and who are serving today to preserve the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States of America. Thank you also to the families who wait and pray for the safe return of their loved ones who are risking their lives for us every day.

May God richly bless them all for the sacrifices they make each day, may God bless you by meeting all your needs and may you have enough to share.

Mmmm, Chili ... I love it, but my family don't !!
My Sunday dinner consisted of Chicken Schnitzel, honeyed carrots, brussel sprouts, potatoes and mushroom gravy. Yummy. It was Hubby's birthday, and he is a Schnitzel fanatic.
Hope your weekend has been a good one.
Have a great week.
Take care, hugs, Meow xx

Now I'm torn between inviting myself to your place or Early Bird's. I love catfish but it's very expensive here. No St. Francis river around these parts and I wouldn't eat anything that came out of our local water.

I cooked a pork tri-tip yesterday and then the girls were invited out to dinner. i'll turn it into barbecue today on buns with beans and maybe a salad or slaw.

If they're home, that is. They've become quite social, especially on the weekends.

Have a great week.

P. S. Meow's sounds pretty good too. I'll have to ask her about the recipe for her chicken.

I'm going to comment on two posts in one here Diane. I think that gift package is just so delightful. Diane really did think of everything. What a sweet thing for her to do.
I think the graduation pictures you did get are just precious. Emmy will just love looking at them in a few years.
Our sunday dinner will be a new chicken recipe I found the other day. We haven't had ice cream in the house for ages (my rotten cholesterol number accounts for that), but since our daughter is coming for dinner we decided to splurge. My husband found Blue Bell Chocolate Covered Strawberry ice cream at the store. Sounds heavenly. I may just skip dinner and go straight to the ice cream!!
I add my thanks and prayers to yours.
No big plans for the weekend. We have had more rain than we've had in the past two years!!
Hope your weekend is wonderful!

You know, Diane, that's what I do when I'm not sure who's showing up for dinner around here. A big batch of something that doesn't have to be eaten that day. When I make chili or spaghetti sauce, or lasagna, I always make a double batch so I can freeze one for an easy dinner later.

This day is a little out of whack - Krissy's appointment at David's Bridal to have her dress fitted and altered is at 5 p.m., right in the middle of dinner prep time. So I decided to keep it simple today - we're grilling brats.

Tomorrow, however, I'm making barbecued pork spare ribs, corn on the cob and my Oriental spinach salad.

Our plans are simple this holiday weekend. Relax. Period. No big plans at all. Right now I'm cutting ribbon for 150 bottles of wedding bubbles. LOL

What on earth am I going to do when this wedding is over? I know! I'll start making Christmas ornaments! In July!

Hope you have a nice, easy holiday weekend yourself.

Chili does sound pretty good. I was actually reading through the comments trying to get inspired!
Our "Sunday" dinner will be the traditional Memorial Day cookout, but we're having it tomorrow. Burgers, corn on the cob, baked beans and salad. Ice cream from Cold Stone and watermelon for those who want it...
Still have to figure out tonight though!
Love and hugs!!

We had pork roast today with the usual stuff. And a yummy fruit conglomeration and some red/white/ and blue cookies (from the store).

I am behind like crazy, so just read the previous post - That is quite a sight - a high school graduate holding his new born baby! I applaud him for hanging in there, for sure.

What a wonderful package from Diane! You have certainly been blessed with gifts from blogging buddies.

Have a great week and enjoy every moment of solitude.

Chili is always good!

I had leftover meatloaf for dinner today. It was good too!

I am very excited to say we have company coming in and we are going to Cracker Barrel. Very excited to see our friends and have some yummy biscuits.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday too!

Thanks for stopping by Kev's post and my mini post. I finally got mine published - I'm kinda sad to see this series end. But there is much more to come!!
