What's SUNDAY DINNER at your house? Or, what was it growing up?

..........and, if it was good enough for then, why not NOW? :-)
Did you have a meal every single Sunday after church, for example? Mr. Z's aunt made the same exact meal every single week...pork, peas and mashed potatoes, I think it was. Do you have a family meal or two that were traditional meals every week? I love hearing about things like that...please share!
Do you call it SUPPER or DINNER? And what time was the main Sunday family meal?

Olive Oil.............who knew?

I can't imagine stir frying Asian recipes with olive oil, but I do quite a lot of sauteeing with it....THIS ARTICLE tells us that's even BAD for us...the article is interesting and has some good tips in it. It tells what oils to use for what............some are surprising. It omits using olive oil in salads and I believe that's one of the healthiest ways of using it. Anyway, very interesting.....Check it out! (if anybody reading here is too young to recognize the lady to your left, do NOT let me know....!)
