I am excited today to be participating in the #SundaySupper movement started by Isabel, the FamilyFoodie. I’ve been following this for several months now and the idea is that we all need to take the time, even if it’s just once a week, to get back to the family dinner table and share our time with family. For generations before ours, it was a weekly tradition and it’s something that we hope to make a tradition once again in households across the globe.
This week, we are cooking from The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman. The conversational tone of the intro and notes throughout make you feel like you’re listening to a friend who’s just sharing some tips that have worked for her and her family. The recipes include updated versions of old standbys like Macaroni & Cheese or Lasagna with Chicken Piccata-ed (with or without the sauce) but also a variety of other recipes that are sure to become new favorites. Sprinkled throughout the book are Cooking Tips for Make Ahead or Vegetarian options as well as a “What the Kids Can Do” section for every recipe.
This week I chose to make the Lasagna with Turkey Meat Sauce. We love lasagna and I especially love that you can make it ahead—either to store in the refrigerator or freezer—to pull out when company’s coming. Pair it with a yummy garden salad and some fresh bread and you’ve got a quick, company-ready meal that is a cinch to put together. The Turkey Meat sauce makes A LOT (like about 12 cups) so it’s perfect to make ahead and serve over pasta anytime or store in 5 cup quantities so you can assemble a lasagna at the last minute. Perfect!
