Sunday Dinner: Not Always a Feast

Hello Friends. 

I hope you are having a splendid first week of Spring 2011.  

Today I am visiting Michelle at Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday.  Have you visited Michelle lately?  Her novel Gone With a Handsomer Man is now on bookstore shelves.  You can also visit Michelle's website HERE.   
Sunday dinner at our house is normally very special.  Jordan and Ashlee are both home and I have all day to prepare something special.  This past Sunday, I went another route.  We had homemade Italian subs.  
Our local antique mall also houses a farmers market featuring Amish meats and cheeses.  Since my visits are infrequent, I tend to buy a lot when I do.  We had a nice variety of meats (ham, salami, pepperoni, bologna), cheeses (provolone, Swiss, and cheddar), and toppings (olive salad, onion, tomatoes, spinach, pickles, peppers).  Everyone could have their sub just as they like it. For dessert, we had fresh strawberries over strawberry cream rolls.  YUM!  You gotta love an easy dinner menu.
Speaking of dinner menus, Lynn announced April's celebrity chef for her monthly Celebrity Cook-along.  You may recall, March's celebrity chef was Ina Garten.  You can see my contribution HERE.  Ree Drummond, aka Pioneer Woman, is the April celebrity chef.
So start testing Ree's recipes now, that's the fun part, so you will be ready for April 15.  You can find tons of fantastic recipes on Ree's website or in her cookbook, Pioneer Woman Cooks.       



  1. We don't have big meals because it is just Don and I and love sandwiches for dinner. Heading back to NC tomorrow and my cookbook is up there so I might join you all with the Cook-along. Have a great day.

  2. You've made me remember that I need to hit the Farmer's Market in downtown Dayton on Sat. morning. Lots of cheese and breads, maybe a dessert or two, as well..... Yummy sandwich! I need hot peppers and my homemade dressing for those suckers! Thanks for the meal idea. I'm so stagnant right now. hugs, Sue

  3. Your dinner looks really good to me La! Nothing better than a hoagie every once in a while! Thanks for the Cook-Along shout out, have a great day:@)

  4. It's rare that I make homemade subs, but these look delicious {dessert, too!}.

    Thanks for the heads up on Lynn cook~along. I missed the one with Ina and I have one of her cookbooks. I must be the only person that doesn't have Pioneer Woman. Thanks for the tip on the website!


  5. The sub looks great! See you on the 15th at the party!

  6. Your meal looks fabulous...just right! Thanks for your comments about my spring mantel!

  9. I actually like a cold meal sometimes...a big sandwich or an interesting salad is perfect on some days. This looks so yummy!

  10. I miss those sunday dinners that we had when I was a kid. We dont do them here because my husband works shift work and crazy schedules. Maybe in a few years when he retires we can start.
    The sandwich looks fantastic.
    Have a great weekend

  11. Hmmm, i like italian food, very nice.

    Many greetings Anne
