RE: The All-American Sunday Dinner
Sunday dinner: the ultimate would be late summer when fresh veggies are still to be had. Growing up we might have had:
Fried Chicken, fresh green beans cooked with a small ham hock, fresh summer squash sauted with onions and seasonings until crisp-tender(in the south we don't cook ALL veggies to death), homemade creamed corn, fried corn bread, a platter with sliced fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, and if we had dessert, peach cobbler made with a very rich pastry from homegrown fresh peaches. Winter would be pork roast, boiled potatoes dressed with a cream sauce (similar to scalloped), fresh collard greens, and crackling corn bread. Dessert? If we had it (not often), fresh apple cake. Oh gosh! I am so hungry now!
