When I moved to Maryland four years ago, my dad and I started a “Sunday Supper” tradition that we have stuck to nearly every week since. It’s so standard at this point that we barely even confirm that it’s happening. At most, we have a brief conversation on either Saturday or Sunday morning about who’s making what and what time the first glass of wine will be served.
Sometimes we experiment with new recipes, and other times we rely on our old standbys. Sometimes we make a really rich, heavy meal, and other times we just have a salad. Sometimes Dad cooks, sometimes I cook, sometimes we share the duty (he is my favorite sous chef, after all!), and other times, like tonight, he’ll make the main course and I’ll make dessert.
Sunday Supper is always good, but tonight it was outstanding.
(L-Dogs: so proud of himself!)
Dad really outdid himself tonight. He used Dom Deluise’s recipe for eggplant-stuffed peppers, and they came out perfectly.
Red peppers, eggplant, breadcrumbs, garlic, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
Meaty (and yet meatless), gooey, and flavorful.
Served with an arugula and tomato salad, this meal was simple, filling, and delicious—exactly what Sunday Supper should be!
