Cooking for Sunday Dinner

For as long as I can remember, there have been special church occasions and having dinner on the church grounds has been the order of the day. I often see person after person walking in with store bought fried chicken. I've never been quite sure if it was a lack of time, a lack of planning, or a lack of ideas. However, I am sure this is not limited to my church.

This may seem strange, but I've traveled all over the country and lived in many different cultures. No matter where I live, one thing that seems to be constant is that someone will inevitably bring in fried chicken from a local restaurant or deli as his or her potluck. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but there are so many great Sunday cooking recipes that so many people will fall back on this boring old tradition instead of topping it up or adding to the deal with a delicious taco casserole Sweet, which might seem odd, is a delicious and easy-to-prepare dessert.

Sunday dinner is obviously not the only occasion, and making a casserole or preparing a dessert is a good decision of the day. However, they are the most common from childhood, which is why I refer to them often. There are also "pitch-ins" that need to be contributed at work. This is a good opportunity to make your colleagues envious of your cooking skills. But even for the health-conscious, there are many delicious salads that can be prepared for such an occasion, allowing you to enter guilt-free into the event you're preparing.

You don't have to choose high-calorie or high-fat dishes for Sunday lunch. In fact, when cooking, you should cook what you like to eat. Most of us are more likely to put our best effort into preparing foods we love rather than those that feel like a chore to us. The same goes for cooking for potlucks etc. Just make sure you don't cook the exact same dish every time, or people will think it's the only dish you can cook.

I recommend reading casserole recipes online and in your favorite magazines. Even magazines that offer healthier eating options often have casseroles, great salads, and even healthy desserts that you can prepare for these events. My personal solution has been to collect over time recipes I want to try and use the potluck crowd as my recipe guinea pigs. If my family or I don't like it, we don't eat leftovers during the week, and if we like it, we can add it to our recipe rotation to take home.

Cooking Sunday night isn't as stressful as many of us think it is. In fact, you can make many wonderful crock pot recipes while you sleep. Just add the right ingredients to your slow cooker and turn it on right before portioning. You should wake up to the wonderful aroma of delicious food being prepared and still manage to get ready for church in record time. This time-tested technique is a great way to make Sunday lunch quick and easy.

Even if you're one of the many people with very limited culinary talents, it's entirely possible to wow your friends, family, and church colleagues with the right "easy-to-make" recipes. Desserts are by far the best option, and (in many cases) can be made the night before and kept in the fridge. Desserts are almost always a good choice, but few people complain about them. The Kraft Foods website has some super easy-to-make and delicious desserts when you need them. The next time it's your turn to help out with a potluck, skip the fried chicken. Instead, offer something that really grabs attention.
