Roasted Chicken and potatoes is one of the easiest Sunday dinners you can do. There is less than 5 minutes of prep and everything goes into the oven at once—set a timer and in 1 1/2 – 2 hours (time will vary depending on the size of the chicken) and you’re done!
When I was kid Sunday dinner always entailed sitting down at the table, elbows off and clean up was a chore left to me my siblings. Now as an adult and dad, Sunday dinner is a fire drill 50% percent of the time, the other 50% looks like this—a homemade meal that is well made, simple, unfussy—100% doable. The only thing standing in my way of making this, or any other Sunday dinner like this from regularly appearing, is planning.
I’m working on it though. As Cole gets older, Naomi and I, are having him help us plan ahead for Sunday dinner. It’s an equal mix of holding us more accountable, and teaching him the importance of family dinners. Epecially now as he gets older and wants to spend more time with his friends than at home.
I’m a traditionalist so dinners like this is important. Along with that, I’m adding in a piece of family heirloom by way of Hawthorne Forge. This is the knife that so many of you commented on when I posted it to Instagram here.
The knife is hand made and hand carved, the beautiful etching on the blade—of me and the boys—hand etched as well. The craftsmanship is like no other from look, feel and function, it’s top notch. So for anyone looking for a gift for that person who has everything, this is it – a personalize knife that you can pass down through the generations.
Now if only I can pass down the idea of Sunday dinner to my pre-teen who would rather face time with his friends over dinner time with his family.
