Supper Sundays: An Introduction

suppersundaysintroduction

Sunday is a day of rest in our house. We like to relax and try to stay home and enjoy our time off from the busy week. I have always found that I like to make nice homemade meals on Sundays. I don’t know if it’s the way I grew up or what, but cooking supper on Sundays, for the most part, relaxes me.

This year I want to continue to strive to eat healthy and to write more. To accomplish this I’ve given myself the goal of Supper Sundays. I definitely do not consider myself an elite chef and don’t ask me to go near exotic foods, but I love a good recipe for Grandma’s crock pot chicken and I particularly like making desserts from scratch. I plan to make at least one, wholesome meal a week. I’m sure there will be other meals during the week when I accomplish this, but a Sunday is for sure on the list.

What do I mean by wholesome? First, I plan to use Lisa’s “Real Food Defined” list from 100daysofrealfood.com. I love this list (and I LOVE her site!)! Ever since I came across her site I have really tried to stick to “5 Ingredients or less” on items that come in box, bottle, etc. Anything that isn’t fresh gets the look over for 5 ingredients or less. For Sunday supper, this is a must. I also plan to buy as much organic ingredients as possible and make the meal as much from “scratch” as possible.

Wholesome Cooking and Wholesome Eating Recipes and chat on Supper Sundays

I can’t guarantee that I will always get this done on Sunday because you know, life happens, but it will be the goal. Some weeks I might cook on Saturday, or if I know we’re going to be out of town or have plans, schedule it for a different day of the week. Generally, I will post my experiences on Sundays for whatever wholesome meal I cooked the previous week.

Ladies and gentleman, I pledge to cook at least one wholesome, as organic as possible, meal a week and post my experiences. Would anyone care to join me? Have any recipes I need to try?

Cheers!
