An Autumn Sunday Supper

It's that time again. Time to move the furniture onto the back porch, turn the music up, friends and family join us with their dishes, we gather around the table laugh, nourish our bodies and souls, reconnect.  The food is rarely fancy, just a good meal served up family style.

This what our family does often, we eat. 




The weather is perfect-warm enough to keep the Thai peppers a fiery red


But, cool enough to add some color to landscape


Two of my boys getting ready to chow down



Thanks for joining us. See you next Sunday.

My favorite thing in the world is cooking and serving a meal to my family. Seems like we have a lot in common. Your blog is lovely and I am so happy you visited me on my blog. I hope you stop by again and perhaps decide to follow. Your corn bread is making my mouth water.

I love those red thai chilis. I'm going to have to plant some next year. Too far to drive to the oriental market. Everything looks so wonderful. I love family style buffet served meals.

Every Sunday growing up was spent at my great aunt's or grandma's house, eating spaghetti, Italian sausage, meatballs, escarole salad, fresh Italian bread, pignola cookies! It's nice that you continue this sort of tradition with your own family, Velva, they will always remember these days.

This is my first visit to your blog and it's lovely! What is in that casserole dish? It looks divine! There is nothing better than feeding family and friends, I truly enjoy it. And I've come to the realization that I'm a "Feeder" I love to and have a need to feed people when they visit! If you'd like to "visit" me in New England, and my fairly new blog - I love company and new Followers are always welcome!

That's a perfect weekend!

Stella said...

Awe, that's a nice line up of food, Velva! Ooh, and are those peppers called 'Thai Peppers' at the garden shop? I'm in South Florida and I just sprouted some jalapenos. I need to start more peppers, as I hear they grow well here?!

Tuula said...

What a lovely dinner, love the colors & I can just feel the "coziness" of this meal! Glad to share in your delicious Sunday :)

UrMomCooks said...

Looks a little like my house... Sunday brunch and dinner are pretty much a sure thing for my 3 grown-up kids! Like you, I luv to do it!
