16 Sunday Dinner Ideas to Serve

I love having little get together's and family dinners. Unfortunately most of my family lives far apart and we can't routinely have meals together, but in my ideal world, family and friends would gather once a week and feast upon different meals and catch up on what happened in everyone's lives over the past seven days.

Sunday dinners are a dream that I hope will someday come true for me, and I am really going to strive to create and instill this tradition with my children, so that when they are grown we can still have close family relationships with each other. 

I am always on the lookout for new food recipes or just a twist on traditional meals that I already cook. has tons of great photographs and drool-worthy food to inspire me; so much that I've already got one collection of my dream Sunday family dinners! There's not really anything that necessarily ties them together into a theme, other than the fact that they are all something that I would serve a group of guests in my home, and I'm pretty sure most people would find them delicious too!

  6. You are correct it is a fading tradition and that is very sad. As kids we would always know around 1 pm on Sunday there would be a big meal to be had. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!

  10. We used to eat supper together almost every night, and, I have to admit, I felt a bit smug about that. Look at us, living the dream! Enter this past year, in which we rarely ate supper together due to different activity schedules. I really missed it, too!
