IMPRESS YOUR FAMILY BY COOKING SUNDAY SUPPER
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the past few years, it’s the importance of togetherness. Families and friends have rediscovered the healing power of spending time together. During the height of the pandemic, many families found their social circles had diminished drastically. School was conducted at home (for better or worse), groceries were delivered to your door and many families enjoyed the simple, intimate pleasure of Sunday supper.
When your every waking moment can be spent on your phone, it’s a nice change of pace to talk face to face. Believe it or not, your parents miss you! Eating a meal at least once a week gives every member of the family a chance to tell stories, laugh and spend time together.
In addition to having Sunday supper, many families use this day to prepare meals for the entire week. Use the opportunity to impress your parents with a few things you might have learned in FACS class! Whether preparing mustard glazed pork chops for Monday, tacos for Tuesday or spaghetti and meatballs for Saturday, cooking together can be a fun way to get the whole family involved. Passing down family recipes can build bonds and make memories at the same time.
One of our favorite recipes that the whole family can make is Italian Stuffed Pork Meatball Sandwiches. These delicious sandwiches are crowd-pleasers that are perfect for Sunday supper. If your family would rather enjoy a lazy Sunday without the need to prep a lot of ingredients, you could try Slow Cooked Black Bean Pork Chili. Even if your family doesn’t get a chance to make some meals together, you can find great recipes for you and your friends at Pork.org!
Now, when life is starting to return to “normal,” many families are continuing these traditions as a way to slow down, take a breath and enjoy the simple pleasures of Sunday supper.
