I don’t do fancy, elaborate Sunday lunches. I wish I could.
I wish I had the ability to be organized enough to get together a traditional Southern after-church lunch of a meat and three veggies. Like a roast or fried chicken with a side casserole of some sort. A dish of corn or green beans swimming in butter or bacon grease. All served shortly after noon with homemade rolls or biscuits and sweet tea. That would be divine.
But, I just can’t get it together.
For example, lunch today was frozen fries and a sandwich of leftover homemade meatballs. The sandwich rolls, sauce, and cheese were all bought after church today.
Growing up, somehow my mom could make a Sunday lunch to remember happen. I can not recall having leftovers or sandwiches for Sunday lunch when she was cooking.
I am a Southern Sunday lunch failure.
Yet, I guess it really doesn’t matter as long as we are all at the table and warm and fed.
I would like the butter or bacon grease part, though.
