5 O'Clock On Any Given Sunday

Once again our family was blessed to gather around the table for Sunday Dinner. I can not recommend highly enough this tradition to you, my readers. Our family knows that on any given Sunday at five o'clock exactly where they will be, if at all possible. Not only are appetites fed there, but spirits nourished.

Our menu today was: BBQ Pork Ribs, Potato Casserole, Marinated Spring Vegetables and for dessert a delicious homemade Strawberry Shortcake.

It was obvious by the foods on our table that Spring has sprung! We had fresh vegetables galore in a tangy marinade. I couldn't help but smile at all of the different colors as I cut the fresh vegetables into bite sized pieces.

My sister made the BBQ Ribs. They were so tender that they fell off of the bones. There was no way to pick them up. It was more like delicious morsels of pulled pork. Yum! One of our favorite Sunday Sides, Potato Casserole was the perfect foil with it's cheesy creaminess to the BBQ's piquant bite.

After all that delicousness... the family still had one more treat to come. We had gorgeous Strawberry Shortcakes to take advantage of the beautiful berries available in the stores now. I made the short cakes from scratch with fresh butter and flavored them with orange zest and real vanilla. Sliced open, and filled with berries and cream, they were mind-blowingly good.

I hope to get back to post recipes. However, please feel free to message me if I am delayed and you would like to try any of the recipes.

Sundays are my favorite days! See you soon!
