As I mentioned in the first Sunday Night Dinner post, a big inspiration behind this series were the Sundays I spent as a child around a table with my loved ones. The adults would drink wine and the kids would plot out our next adventure, which usually involved checking out the “haunted” abandoned house down the street. It was a time to connect and re-energize for the rest of the week and was often my favourite part of the weekend.
Not much has changed since then. Well that isn’t necessarily true: I’ve moved to the other side of the country, have made a home with my boyfriend, and often get to host these dinners. I relish spending my whole Sunday preparing for a “simple” dinner for my family and friends. Sunday Night Dinner is truly special and I hope to carry on the tradition for years to come.
One dish that often made it’s way to the table on Sunday nights was my mom’s rendition of Chicken Marbella. I considered this “Mom’s chicken” and now often make it myself for big groups. It’s so easy, and you can’t go wrong with this recipe, so I’m not going to re-create it! Enjoy, that recipe is seriously perfect.
Check back tomorrow for the long-awaited #WineWednesday featuring wine pairings.
