Sunday has always been my favorite day of the week!
When I was a young girl Dad and Mom helped each other make breakfast on Sunday. My brothers and sister and I scoured the Sunday Funnies while we waited for breakfast. We went to Church and then came home to the smell of Mom’s pot roast. In my mind it has always been a day for worship and for family. Even if I don’t go to Church…I feel gratitude and count my blessings. It’s a Sunday thing!
There is just something about Sunday! The words in the song, Easy, that Lionel Richie sings (easy like Sunday morning) strikes a chord with me. Just hearing those words makes me feel like it is Sunday…or makes me long for Sunday! It reminds me of days spent with Dad and Mom, my kids and grandkids and those easy peaceful Sundays that I spend now with Poppy (my husband).
Sunday breakfast and dinner traditions remained a constant while raising my family. Even when some of the kids had grown and moved away from the nest, for many years Sunday dinner was still at Mom’s! Growing and ‘grown’ children with their own families have busy lives. Sunday was generally the easiest day to get everyone together! I loved those days!
Now…my family lives ‘out West’ and Poppy and I are living in Kentucky.
Sunday is our day. We enjoy easy, peaceful Sunday mornings here in our empty nest and I enjoy making us a special breakfast.
Let me see if Poppy enjoyed it….
Inspired by an item on a restaurant menu here in Kentucky, I created some Kentucky style french toast this morning. It is delicious! It’s texture and flavor remind me of bread pudding. A bit of bourbon is added to the egg and milk mixture. I made a bourbon butter sauce last weekend for my hummingbird cupcakes and had some leftover that I froze. It made an outstanding syrup for the french toast.
The following link will take you to a printable version of the Bourbon Sauce…
It was an ‘easy like Sunday morning’ breakfast!
I thought of my brother-in-law this morning. He makes french toast for his family every Sunday!
I think each of us must have a favorite day of the week and a favorite family tradition that goes along with it.
‘Til we meet again…
Wishing you a day that fills you with that …
‘Easy like Sunday morning’ feeling,
A day that is blessed simply….and simply blessed with
family and tradition!
