Then, there came a time when I hated Sundays. My parents were divorced when I was 9 and my mom had full custody of my sister and I, but we spent every other weekend with my dad. Those years were very hard. Without going into too much detail, l was miserable with my mom. I would literally count off the days, hours and minutes until the next time I would see my dad. I hated Sundays because that was the day that he would bring us back to mom's. Then, I would start the count down again.
As an adult, it got better but Sundays was still the day before going back to work....usually after a very fun and active weekend with friends. Not my favorite day by any stretch of the imagination.
Now, as a wife and mother...Sundays mean so much more. It's a day for God and family. I love to have Dan's parents over for dinner. I try to do this as often as I can because I want my kids to have good memories of Sundays. During the week, we often eat off of paper plates. This really cuts down on the dishes (we don't have a dishwasher).....but NOT on Sundays. On most Sundays, I bring out the good dishes and set the table as well as serve from the table.
Tonight, we had Crockpot Cubed Steaks, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots and biscuits. For dessert....fresh sliced peaches with ice cream. I got the recipe from The Flowering Dogwood.
Here's a picture of the prepared recipe from the blog:
And here a picture of what our supper looked like tonight:
How'd I do??? (Just so ya know, I didn't need that knife to cut the steaks....the fork worked just fine!).
