Sunday Dinner Ideas – the weekend is for special dinners, taking a little bit more time in the kitchen, and making something together as a family.  Here are 20 of my favorite Sunday dinner recipes.

The weeks just fly by!  Every night you get home from work, get dinner on the table as fast as you can, and then are running all over the place trying to accomplish a million things. Weekends are when you get to relax just a little bit more. You can to come up with dinner ideas that actually take more than 10 minutes to throw together.

You can even meal prep some things to get ahead for the week.  Make those Easy Dinner Ideas even faster! But today is all about tasty meals that take just a little bit of extra time. Not a lot, because let’s be honest, I don’t have a lot of patience. But you know, maybe something bakes for 60 minutes, or simmers for 45 minutes. Something you can’t always do on a Tuesday.

But on Sunday, you can let it bake away, while you are folding laundry and getting the living room vacuumed. So scroll down, let me know what you are going to try next weekend!
