Personally, I think Sunday is a day of rest, and Dad should either take the family out to dinner, or everyone should fend for themselves!

However, Sunday is also family day for many families, and you can create a wonderful tradition by cooking together and spending time around the dinner table together. Find what works for your family and build some great memories.

3 Easy Sunday Meals for After Church

Taco Salad

Brown some hamburger and add a package of taco seasoning. You can do this the day before and just reheat.

Open a bag of prepared salad.

get out your favorite toppings. I like olives, cheddar cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, onions, a little ranch dressing, black beans, avocado, and even some jalapeño or banana peppers. Sprinkle a little taco sauce or picante on top and serve over a bed of lettuce and chips.

Pot Roast

stick it in the crockpot with a cup or two of water. Add some carrots, sliced onion, onion soup, and some potatoes, and dinner will greet you when you get home.

Baked ham

Place a ready-to-eat ham in a roaster with a little water, cover and bake. Slice it and serve, and use the leftover slices for lunches all week.
