I haven’t posted any Sunday Supper entries for a while, for various reasons (none of which being “I forgot”).
Today, however, I want to bring to your attention a great idea I saw in the “Power Player of the Week” segment on Fox News Sunday, hosted by Chris Wallace.
Mr. Sunday’s Soups. “More than 75 delicious homemade recipes to bring your family together.”
Because of their busy Sunday schedule – for a long time – the Wallaces have had soups on Sundays. Soup is always, easy to make in large or small quantities, of infinite variety and provides great flexibility for serving times. Their custom of having soups helped them maximize the potential of having the whole family eat together.
On a personal note, I had the opportunity to work with Chris Wallace pretty closely for several days in Rome when Bl. John Paul II. I was a Fox News contributor at that time. Mr. Wallace is a great gentleman. I have a sense from having known him a little that the family dimension of this book will also be edifying and worthy in its own right.
Eating together is one of the points behind my Supper Supper posts. We have to eat together more often, strengthen those ties which bond so well at the table.
The point Lorraine Wallace is making with her book is underscored by the inclusion of lots of photos and items about their family life, not just recipes.
For various reasons right now, haven’t been posting Sunday Supper posts, though I would like to. I welcome this “guest spot”.
I would be happy to have guest spots from readers in the future. If you would like to contact me, maybe we can set up a schedule for guest contributions. There would have to be notes about how to make what you make, why you chose it, where it comes from, and, of course, photos and tips.
