What to fix for Sunday Dinner after Church?

May 5, 2007 4:14pm CST
I have about ran out of ideas. I have fixed pot roast with potato and carrots on Saturday and then put on very low heat while we are at church and it is ready for us when we get home. We have BBQ sandwiches sometimes, but not often. I have made potatoe soup, veggie soup, taco soup on Sat and turn eye on low for our Sunday Dinner or have it in the crockpot. Today I cooked Mexican cornbread and potato casserole and will put tinfoil on and on low heat tomorrow while we are at church. I have ran out of ideas, any you can suggest will be greatly appreciated.

You sound like you have things well under control. I like fixing things in the crockpot and then having it ready to eat when we get home from church. Really like your idea of cooking on Sat. and leaving in oven on low.

Hi, well for Sunday dinner normally this is the time where we normally have a bake dinner although I am quite sure tonight that I shall not be eating anything like that so I am not sure what I can eat but I can hear my husband preparing some thing to eat for dinner tonight as it is Sunday night here right now.

Do you know how to make Taco Salad? 1 pd hamburger 1 pkg taco seasoning 1 bag fritos 1 can kidney beans 2 avocado's green onion to taste 1/2 a pkg Cheddar Cheese grated 2 tomatoes 1 small can diced black olives Cook the hamburger (on saturday), drain off grease, add in the taco seasoning and fix accorging to package directions. Set aside till cool then put in the refrigderator. Sunday when you get back from church make the salad with everything else. While your doing that put the hamburger in the microwave for a couple minutes to heat. Add it to the top of the salad and your done. Some people like french dressing, some italian but I like thousand dressing on it. Put the dressings you have on the table and let people decide for themselves. This recipe can be doubled or tripled for more peole. This in itself will feed 4-6 happily. I usually like to add refried beans and mexican rice also which can be cooked the day before and reheated in micro or low oven. Mexican corn bread will also fill people up.. Hope this helps for an idea.. Tammy

When I was an idiot and went to church, I used to stick a roast in the oven before going to church and would come hometo thedelectable smell fo roast dinner ready to eat. Now, sunday dinner is usually a large pot of thick stew and homemade bread, if I'm not working or babysitting.

Yes, stew is really easy to serve after church. Yummy, homemade bread, we love that too. I have about burned us out on roast because we have had it so much. LOL I don't think you were an idiot because you went to church, church is a good thing.
