Sunday Dinner

Now that the elder Hearnes are officially snowbirds summering Minnesota, we’ve reinstated a tradition both Mike and I grew up with: Sunday family dinner.

As a kid, Mike’s Sunday dinners were the best meal of the week for his family of four, usually featuring a roast and other deliciousness. Mine were a larger affair of 10-12 aunts, uncles and grandparents starring brisket, a thriving “dessert club” and Nana at the kitchen sink wearing yellow rubber gloves, refusing to let anyone else do the dishes.

In both cases, Sunday family dinner was splendid, and I’m happy it’s back in my life.

This Sunday, Leanne pulled out all the stops on an incredibly fresh and lovely Greek feast. Note that there were 8 dishes for 4 people, this is how she rolls. For real, she is amazing:
Greek Salad
Grilled Leg of Lamb
Raisin Caper Salsa Verde (Don’t judge… It is so good!)
Ina’s Easy Tzaziki
Ina’s Crispy Roasted Kale
Roasted veggie kebabs
Fresh tomatoes with basil and homemade pesto
Warm chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream

Sunday dinner = awesome. We’ll be trying out this menu again soon.

Until We Eat Again,
Two Happy Cooks
