Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

A couple of days ago, on the way home, I made a detour. Due to the hectic day at work, I stopped (not for take-out, as one might first think) at my favorite thrift store and took a look around for a little time out. As it turns out, it was a splendid day to stop, because I found this lovely cookbook.....

Portland's Palate Cookbook, inside you, will find delicious recipes!
When I got home, Terry said, I think I have seen this book before and he proceeded to read through it once again. A few minutes later, I heard things like "wow this looks good", "that sure sounds good" and finally, "You know, I think I have the bug now.".

Since the man is healthy and I knew he wasn't sick, I pretty much knew which bug he was referring to...the cooking bug. Tonight we had a delicious Hamburger Pie. Now don't let the generic name fool you, this is wonderful.

Hamburger Pie, with mushrooms, tomatoes, and cheese.
Hamburger Pie, so very delicious!

Hamburger Pie
adapted from:  Portland's Palate
375-degree oven

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 c dry seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c tomato sauce (1/2 of an 8 oz. can)
1 T dried minced onion
1/2 t chili powder 
1 egg

1 egg
1 c sliced mushrooms
1 green pepper, seeded and diced (we used a roasted pepper - love that flavor)
2 c seasoned croutons* (we made our own, see below)
1 c shredded cheddar cheese

1 large tomato, sliced

Combine the ground beef through eggs, combine well. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg, and combine with remaining ingredients except for the sliced tomato. Mix well, layer on top of the meat mixture. Top with sliced tomatoes.

Have a wonderful dinner!

*Early in the day: Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter 2 slices of bread, sprinkle with your favorite seasoning. Cut into small squares. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet or pan. Place in the oven, and turn the oven off. Let them dry while you are free to go about your day. When you need croutons to make dinner, just open the oven!
