sunday dinner

I am a big fan of Sunday dinners. They are important to me and it is a tradition that I cherish. It is a great time to sit around a table with family and friends to share a meal.

I love to cook a home cooked meal on Sunday's.  I do not consider myself a great cook but I don't mind preparing simple meals. I hate trying new recipes. Some new recipes that I have tried in the past were often fails! Therefore, I am always reluctant to try something new!

With that being said... I tried a new slow cooker recipe yesterday that I found in a magazine and it was a success. Bidou even cleaned his plate off!  Yay for me!

Burgundy Beef and Mushroom

  • 1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of cream of celery soup
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix

Brown meat and drain fat.
Combine mushrooms, soups and dry onion soup mix.
Stir in browned meat.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
I served it over fresh pasta!!!

Do you usually cook home cooked meals on Sundays?


  1. I used to have Sunday dinner with my family all the time and I really miss it. It was so nice to dedicate a day to that.

    I wish I liked mushrooms so I could like that dish!
