Sunday Supper


     This morning during church I leaned over and whispered to my husband, “Can we stop at Bob Stark’s after church ,and will you cook this afternoon?”

Silence (except for the sermon).


I smiled and re-focused my thoughts on the message.

     Bob Stark’s is a local meat market that has wonderful cuts of meat. These Sunday evening meals always include my father, who is the perfect dinner guest.

     Although he arrives really early, he leaves the minute he puts his fork down- usually saying,

I better go get my shot.” (He is diabetic.)

     My husband is a great cook and our menu tonight included his beans. Oh my gosh. They are amazing.



     He then barbecued sirloins and pork ribs.


     I sliced some tomatoes, made a green salad with ranch dressing, prepared some corn and steak fries.

IMGP0298      I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday afternoon.  I am off to clean the kitchen and find some ice cream.

Yummy! You are lucky to have a husband that cooks. Mine can boil water.....I think. :-) Have a great evening!

Looks like it was a wonderful Sunday supper! I'd love it if my husband could/would cook something! Hope you found that ice cream!

Marguerite said...

While you are off cleaning the kitchen, mind if I look around for leftovers? Those tomatoes, corn and beans are whupping this chubby girl!
I will agree with Marguerite, y'all are both blessed to have your Dads at Sunday dinner. I miss mine...he did the cooking at our Sunday get togethers!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh, you sweet thing!! I would have been downing the ice cream as an incentive to clean up the kitchen!!

So happy you had a fun filled family meal, Laura!


Kelly said...

Those beans look so good. Is it a recipe you can share or is it an old family secret?

Stacey said...

That sounds like the perfect summer dinner. Might do something similar today. Have a great Monday. :)

Looks like a great Sunday dinner. It's is always better when someone else cooks it:)

Joy said...

Oh those beans look wonderful. Everything does. That is so neat that your daddy gets to come and eat with you.
Those tomatoes..did you grow them. Or are your tomatoe plants like mine. Fried!


Debbie's Garden said...

Wellll, we were doing the same thing Sunday, cookin. It looks yum-o-licious! The cleaning at the end definitely stinks.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh wow! Did you save some for me?

Barbara said...

Laura, I am always on the lookoout for other Texas bloggers, so it is very nice to find you.

Your Sunday supper looks and sounds wonderful, my husband is the cook in our house except for the cajun dishes like gumbo, dirty rice, etc.

I am compiling a list of Texas bloggers and the list is growing in leaps and bounds.

Please come and see me and add your name as a follower.

Purple hugs,

Fabulous supper, Laura - We do our family thing on Saturday night usually. Looks like we have the same tastes in food, too!

Is that bean recipe one you can share? If not, that's fine. They just look so yummy! I've got some beans at home I need to cook. Have a good week!
