    Does anyone make Sunday dinner anymore?

    When I grew up, if I went to my Grandma's on Sunday, I could expect a feast.  I don't hear of people having Sunday dinners anymore.  Do you know of any families who have Sunday dinners consistently?

    Some of my fondest childhood memories are of Sunday family dinners. We went to my grandmother's house every Sunday. How I miss those days! Unfortunately, I find that many family members are now scattered all over the country and getting together every Sunday (or even more than once a year) is impossible. It's sad, because studies show that eating together as a family has some huge relationship-building benefits. Great question!

    I always loved Sunday brunch or dinner growing up- just loved spending that time with family.

    Unfortunately, I live far away from extended family now, and my immediate family has to work on Sunday.

    I'm sure that Michelle Obama is against the "feast" and "sunday dinners" since she's very vocal about fighting the obesity epidemic.

    It's not much of a dinner. Every week day night, we feast. Then comes the weekend...

    I think the reason you don't hear about people having big family Sunday dinners is due to family living long distances from each other. I make Sunday dinner fairly often, but not for a huge crowd anymore. That does happen on all major holidays. I remember loving the Sunday dinners when I was young also.

    I make Sunday dinner every week. Sometimes it is just my husband, daughter, and I. Sometimes my two sons and the kids of one of them. We live far from the extended family but we are still our own extended family. We even sit at the table to eat every night. It is definitely a family builder. Our kids all had their orders. Sit at the table and eat with us or be grounded and eat with us.

    Me and my gang go to the bowling alley where we get "breakfast and bowling" for just $12.75.... It includes 3 strings of bowling, shoes, a house ball, AND an "adequate" breakfast (eggs, pancakes, French toast..... your choice)... and coffee or a soft drink.  Does this count?????

      That sounds like a good deal . We used to pay that for the game without the breakfast !

    My mom still does it ! But she's French and I guess it's more traditional back in my country.
    I'm still under the illusion that eventually, I'll do it too :p
    It usually starts with a small plate of appetizers, then there's the main meal (fairly fancy because it's Sunday) and then desert (usually heavy enough to not make you want any food for dinner) and that's it, another week went by and another one shall start tomorrow.

    Yes! Like many of the Hubbers that have answered, I too have many fond memories from having Sunday Dinner with family. I will always associate Sunday Evenings at home with joy, humor and lots of love. It also reminds me of fried chicken! Yum! I don't have a lot of Sunday Dinners anymore, but whenever possible-I try to make it home for them. smile

    We don't and it is because we are always too busy doing something else. Most people no longer sit down to eat at a dinner table anymore.
