This wasn’t the menu we intended for our kick-off of 52 Sunday Suppers. But, I came down with the flu and my plans for the week sorta flew out the window. Plans which included meeting with Susie, brainstorming recipes, cooking and documenting the yumminess with photos. Susie has an amazing eye for photography.
This is real life. Where friends, and family, and neighbors get sick. So, we decided to roll with it. Sunday Supper Girls are all about keeping it real.
Have you ever wondered, “what should I take my neighbor, friend, or co-worker who is sick?” This week’s Sunday supper menu is an easy and delicious go-to-meal for anyone who needs a little TLC and relief from a cold, the flu, or any other icky sicky. It is also an encouragement to love your neighbor. Which is exactly what Susie did for me this week.
A few hours after our plans went awry and I went on Tamiflu, Susie showed up with a basketful of love. She texted to tell me supper was on the front porch, but I already knew. Y’all I could smell the homemade bread all the way upstairs. And, it was still warm!
Shhh. . . don’t tell, but the Littles and I each had a slice of warm, buttered bread before we even sat down for supper. I know your family will love this Sunday supper as much as we did. Even though it wasn’t exactly what we had planned, I think this meal is a perfect way to start off our revival of the Sunday supper.

The best part about this meal is that it makes plenty! The chicken & rice soup recipe easily feeds 12, or more. And the bread recipe makes two generous loaves. So you can make a meal for your family and take one to a neighbor or friend. Spread the love!
Make One, Take One.
Susie & I started using the hashtag #M1T1 on instagram & twitter if you want to join in the fun. Speaking of social media, we created a 52 Sunday Suppers Facebook page. Be sure to click over there and ‘like’ our page. We want you to be Sunday Supper Girls (& guys!), too.
Let’s keep the conversation going and encourage one another. We’d love for you to post your #M1T1 stories for the week (in the comments or on Facebook) as well as any of your favorite recipes and tips for taking meals to neighbors and friends.
Before we all go, can we give virtual hugs and cyber love to Susie for sharing such a delicious meal with me AND you this week?! She’s the real deal, y’all.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Yum! A friend brought me soup and bread last week when I was sick and I was so thankful. There’s just nothing better!
Sandra – I actually thought of you this week! Definitely a week straight out of your ebook Loving Your Neighbor!
Such a great idea – especially in flu season! So many of our church members were out today.
On another note, we need to get together some time! 🙂 We talked about it after Relevant a year or so ago and it never happened.
We SO need to get together…how has a year already passed? 🙂

One more reason to look forward to Sunday. But curious – where is the maple in the Lemon Maple dressing?
Gloria – We caught that mistake early this morning, but not before the email subscribers received the post! The pdf on my site is corrected now with 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup added! How can you have Lemon Maple Vinaigrette without the maple? Thank you for your grace and for reprinting from my website (instead of the email). 🙂
These recipes sound scrumptious! I love all of Cynthia Pedregon’s recipes. Curious if you have any good GF bread recipes? I’m finally equipping my kitchen with all kinds of GF flour. It’s a bit of a science experiment to adapt some old favorite recipes.
