In my family it’s always a tradition to cook big meals on Sunday’s, we all gather together and eat and talk about our week or what’s been going on with each other, I use to go to my grandmas every Sunday after church as a little girl she would cook the best meals and always made sure everything was perfect. I miss that now but try my best to keep the tradition up so let me tell you/share some of my favorite meals to make/eat on Sunday.
1.baked chicken w/greens and Mac and cheese
This is one of my favorite meals of all time for one I love chicken it’s good for the body has lots of protein and yes I will eat it baked or fried but of course baked is healthier. I love collard greens as well they taste good and are healthy for the body not to mention my dad makes the best Mac and cheese it’s so good and cheesy, I wish my Mac and cheese tasted that good but I wanna one lie it needs some work but I do try so that should count for something? Right? Lol don’t leave me hanging.
2. Baked spaghetti w/ground turkey
I love love love spaghetti it’s so good so I basically take a recipe that I got from my grandma she use to alway make a big pot of spaghetti when I was growing up and it was delicious to say the least and I love adding meatballs as well I also add sugar for that little extra flavor with some Italian seasoning, onions, peppers, mushrooms and that beautiful tomato sauce it’s so good. My dad makes the best baked spaghetti he will make a big tray of it that last for days and of course garlic bread can’t go wrong with that either. I’m trying to get better with baked spaghetti I always feel like I put too many noodles 🤦♀️ so I’m learning lol but I do better with pot spaghetti.
3. Turkey wings
I love love turkey wings they are so good especially with a little bit of gravy on them as well, my favorite is the wing part and the skin sooo good with some green beans and mash potatoes and rolls to go with it, i absolutely love anything turkey anyway to be honest because it’s light and healthier for your body anyway it’s rare that I cook that during the week but it’s definitely one of my Sunday favorites al though it’s always hard to find in the grocery store sometimes so whenever I see it gotta grab it and stock up so yes that is great plus it’s a family favorite. You can either bake them or even fry them either way it’s good and once they are done you will love it!
4. Beef roast( my favorite before I stopped eating beef/pork.
My mom use to make this all the time still does and it use to be one of my favorites until I stopped eating beef/pork so she would bake it in the oven and put gravy with potatoes and carrots around it and it was always so yummy with rice or cabbage it was my favorite but of course my health comes first now so al though I miss it, it’s not that end of the world but yes it’s yummy and it’s always moist if you remember to always cover it first so always cover your beef to make it tender otherwise it will be tough that has happened to me before and it sucked so bad but hey you live and you learn I was a beginner cook back then now I’m a little more advanced well some what lol I try my best to cook good food always I really do.
So I actually made this today and it was good al though my dad didn’t like it but my mom and daughter did, of course turkey ground been isn’t going to taste as good as regular beef to some it’s healthier and I’m use to it at this point. You can’t miss what you really did eat a lot! I also made cabbage and potatoes with butter and parsley that I baked last night so I think my Sunday dinner was good and healthy, I usually don’t cook on Sunday because my mom does it but for some reason she wanted me to cook so I agreed even though I didn’t want too but glad I did now because it feels good knowing I made something different for my family since they are so used to eating a certain way so yayhhh proud of me 😊
Family time is so important and growing up Sunday was always my family time to relax and be around family and friends and these are just a few of the meals that I love of course there is more so as alway their will probably be a part two for this so look out for it and enjoy you Sunday’s while I continue too wait for my YouTube video to upload, I really need faster internet like ASAP. Until next time sweeties I’m off to relax and watch some tv.
