So I'm enjoying my usual Sunday confused by what Sundays have actually become now that I am a mom. In the past, Sundays were referred to as Sunday Fundays in which we would start the morning off by drinking and spend the day drinking, ended with drinking. We would watch whatever sport happened to be playing and act like this was the whole reason for the celebration knowing full well that nobody cared about the teams or the score or anything else. Now that I am a mom, Sundays are traditionally "family days" right? You know, the day when families go on outtings and bond or whatever you are supposed to do. Sundays are supposed to be relaxing and calm where nobody is working and all the errands have been done. Lazy Sunday that ends with a nice big family meal. Stop the music! This is what I don't get. How do you end a lazy Sunday with a nice big family meal? Isn't that the opposite of a lazy Sunday when you have to shop, prep, cook, and clean?! How does this work? This revelation of the irony of lazy Sunday has lead me here. I am going to post an easy recipe that moms can cook with little to no time or prep so that they can achieve their lazy Sunday while still holding to the traditional Sunday family meal. If you have a recipe comment on this post and next Sunday I will bring you my first Lazy Sunday recipe. Hopefully each week we will all have a collection of easy meals that us haute moms can use every day, and not just on Sunday!
