Note: This edition of Sunday Night Suppers has been updated to include Metric equivalents.
Sunday night suppers have a charm all their own—a warm, informal intimacy that sets them apart from all the other meals of the week. Six and a half days of serious menu labors are out of the way. Now is the perfect time for a bit of frivolity, for creative experiment, for sharpening the special knack of cooking in a chafing dish.
The whole family can be included in the casual preparation of Sunday night suppers. Tie an apron on Pop. Let Sis stir up a batch of cookies or a quick bread. Invite a couple of guests or a whole roomful. Everything is easier, simpler, more friendly in the relaxed pause of a quiet Sunday evening.
