Yesterday’s dinner was such a breeze to put together I even forgot to get pictures! Trust me when I tell you that I cooked, and even shared our meal with guests. Our dinner was not really the typical kind of Sunday dinner I usually make. I had made a pasta dish a couple weeks ago and it makes a huge amount, so I did two separate dishes when I made it. I baked one for our supper that night and froze the other dish that had the remaining 2/3 of the recipe. Having that dish already made was such a blessing.
- took the pasta out of the freezer and thawed it
- made our favorite pear/Blue Cheese Salad (minus the pears so they wouldn’t brown)
- thawed French bread to broil
- made an apple crisp
- set the table
Sunday morning I put the pasta in the oven on Time Bake so it wouldn’t be baking the whole time we were at church. If you don’t have that feature on your oven wait and heat the pasta in your microwave on about 80% power.
When we got home from church all I had to do was add the pears to the salad and broil the bread! The meal was very filling and so simple. I will definitely do this type of meal again for a Sunday dinner!
Here are my recipes: Baked Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cheese I add extra tomatoes and not quite as much pasta so this will be nice and moist.
My salad was one I’ve shared before: Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad
The Apple Crisp was a new recipe and must be the easiest dessert on the earth! I served it with Praline ice cream by Blue Bell. Yum!
Any recipe that you could double and pop an extra into the freezer would be a blessing on a busy weekend! That’s a great lesson learned. What did you have for Sunday dinner? I’d love to hear!
