There are precious few constants in most of our lives. However, our family is blessed to be able to stop everything and gather around the dinner table in the formal dining room for a meal each Sunday. The funny thing is that we tend to eat off paper plates...after all who wants to wash dishes after a feast?
Today was my day to cook. My Sunday menu: Roasted Chicken, Cheesy Potato Casserole, Vegetable Gumbo and hot rolls. I made a homemade Sweet Potato Pie for dessert.
Here's a look at the bird before carving. That's not burnt skin... that delicious seasonings and flavor!
Next, I'll show you the veggies in the pot. Yummers! It was a delightful mix of lima beans, okra, corn, tomatoes, green beans, zucchini and red bell peppers. Delicious!
Here's a picture of my loaded plate. I'm not much of a meat eater... so I usually just pick up a wing.
Another angle... Look at that yumminess!
And because I just can't leave it alone... a close up of the casserole and veggies.
Dessert was a southern classic: Sweet Potato Pie!
Well, this post is getting long. So, I'll be back with recipes for the Potato Casserole and the Vegetable Gumbo this week.
