My uncle has a house in Duck Key in Florida, one of the most beautiful places that I've been to in the US. While there are many tourists that come through the Keys, there is a local, laid-back attitude that permeates everything in the area, including the food. There's a restaurant in Islamorada called Lazy Days where you can sit in tables on the sand and relax while eating some of the freshest seafood around.
The Academy Awards are this Sunday and, each year, we get together with friends to celebrate the event. Each year we have a different theme and sometimes we all like to get dressed up and have a fancy party. This year, however, we are going to be very casual. My friend, who is hosting the event this year, is going to have a DIY Popcorn Bar, very similar to this one from Sarah's Cucina Bella.
To me, meatloaf is such a perfect meal for a Sunday dinner. It's easy, everyone eats it, and, with a side of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, it's a classic. I love this version from Back to her Roots and I usual double the recipe so I have leftovers for the week.
I make a lot of chicken for dinner in our house. I realized this when, inquiring about the evening meal one day, my son asked, "What's for chicken tonight?" :-) I was excited to find this recipe as my kids really enjoy honey-mustard sauces and this one, from Recipe Girl, is super easy and delicious. Serve with rice, pasta, or a vegetable for a perfect meal.
Nothing says "Sunday Suppers" like a big Italian meal with lots of talking and laughing around the table. Even if your meals are on the smaller side, this dish, from The Skinny Fork, will make you feel like your meal is a huge family feast. The only thing I do differently is that I like to brown the meatballs before I put them into the crockpot.
