What’s Cookin’ in the Parsonage?

Dinner was special yesterday…a few Knock Out Roses in a pitcher, crystal glasses, china, and linen.  But that wasn’t the special part…it was our dinner companions!  It should always be about the people, shouldn’t it?  A meal can be good, but sharing it makes it really good!

Camp is over and we had two special girls joining us!
Here’s our Alli with her friend from camp, Yvette.  Both of them are so pretty, so young, so sweet with a heart for the Lord.

My menu:
Fresh Green Beans
Angel Biscuits
Chocolate Cake and ice cream

I made one of Alli’s favorite dishes – Lemon Greek Chicken. 

I tried a new side dish from Ina Garten – my favorite chef on The Food Network.  These are  the tomatoes with pesto.  They were really good!  If you’ve got fresh tomatoes coming out your ears, this is a great way to use them!  You won’t be sharing any extra tomatoes with your neighbors when you try these!  Oops, maybe I shouldn’t be sharing this recipe,  I get all my fresh veggies from generous friends!  =)

I repeat recipes more often on Sunday than I do any other day of the week.  That’s okay, and it really makes things simpler to do a dish everyone loves and then add a new side dish, salad or dessert.  It’s more about making things special for those you’ve invited in, making them know you’re glad they are there with you.  Serving something yummy – new or not is just icing on the cake!

I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive, quick Sunday main dishes though!  Do you have one to share?  I’d love to hear about it!  Tell me what was cooking in your kitchen this past week!

From my parsonage kitchen,

  1. I love that pitcher! Your table looked so pretty.

    We had roast and potatoes with gravy (no carrots!), green beans, fresh tomatoes (I finally got some!) and french bread. Didn't take very long to get on the table after church.
