The meals that really stick in my memory from my childhood are the ones that we enjoyed on Sunday. Sunday dinners were always filled with family, fun, lots of love and the best food we ate all week.
Memories of my mom and dad in the kitchen wash over me as I remember those days. My daddy belting out a heartfelt 50’s tune to my mom in the kitchen still leaves me swirling.
