Sundays go one of two ways in my home…
1. I go all out and cook probably the best meal of the week. This could be in my crock pot, oven, grill.. you name it and it is FABULOUS!
2. Dinner is leftovers and you fend for your self because after church, all I want to do is take nap :) (yes even food bloggers need a break from the kitchen)
I love Sundays for both those reasons, depending on my mood.
Growing up, my mom always called Sunday our Paper Plate meal, which is so funny to me because Sundays for most people is the “pull out the nice serve ware” day. I LOVE my mom’s tradition and have carried it into my own home. Why?.. well, because if you are cooking a very nice meal, it probably means there will be a lot of dishes… and if you know the first thing about me, I HATE dishes!
One side dish I tend to always serve for Sunday meals are rolls. Fresh baked yummy dinner rolls. Rolls are a side dish almost everyone loves- kids and adults alike! Heck, even my 10 month old loves rolls :) This dinner roll recipe is absolutely amazing! It is the dinner roll recipe my mom grew up on and the dinner roll recipe I grew up on. It comes from my grandma’s cookbook and it will definitely be a hit in your home, too!
