Sunday Dinner was always after church
And more often than not
Mother (and Grandmother)
served either roast beef or fried chicken
Always eaten in the dining room
Always with a tablecloth and real napkins
And the good china and silver
And I loved mother's fried chicken
And with the chicken she would serve mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans (usually her home canned ones from that summer), hot rolls (brown and serve -- Mother was not a bread baker), and my other grandmother's coleslaw.
We always had dessert for Sunday, too.
Either a pie or cake
Last Sunday, I channeled my mother
A traditional fried chicken dinner
Potatoes and gravy
Alas, no rolls nor coleslaw nor dessert.
(We're trying to be good!)
But it wasn't just Sunday dinner
It was memories on a plate.
It's Sunday and I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday.
Oh, YUM, your post brought back fond memories of Sunday dinner for me as well. Things I hadn't thought about in a very long time. Those Sunday dinners were fabulous and my mother's Fried Chicken I remember fondly. I almost never fry chicken anymore but your post surely made me want to. Loved you post, Martha.
This was my mother-in-law's menu. It was so good. Everyone wanted to stop by after church to wheedle an invitation. She always seemed to cook enough for everyone.
Yes, that would truly be a memory on a plate.
I love memories on a plate!!! Our Sunday dinner was always roasted chicken served at 2:00.....and if you weren't there it had better be because you were dead!!!
Ah~h~h. . .comfort food!!!
My MoMa usually had fried chicken or ham dinners on Sundays. We usually had roast beef (pot roast). This way, I could teach Sunday School Class, sing in the Choir and easily put the meal on the table after returning from Worship!
Your Sunday Dinner looks simply divine plated!!!
Ummm, mmmm. It all looks delicious! Wonderful memories of a favorite family meal.
Thanks for bringing your memories to Seasonal Sundays.
