Make Sunday Count Print Recipe Print Recipe

[recipe found HERE]


It’s Sunday.

Usually a time when we start to dread going back to work.  Realizing nothing was crossed off your to do list.  Feeling stressed just at the thought tomorrow is Monday.

Forget all that.

You’ve probably heard me say this on Twitter or Facebook, but it’s Sunday, it’s still the weekend so make it count. My dad started this a few years back when we got consumed with a little something called life and stopped appreciating the little things.  That quickly changed. We started gathering for family dinner again and some nights open a special bottle of wine.  I can just hear my dad now. “Common, lets open this ’99, it’s Sunday. We should make it count, right?” If you know him, you probably have the perfect visual, don’t you?

Other little things we started to do were morning walks, coffee breaks, fresh flowers from the market, etc.

So, whatever you decide to do, whether it’s new or part of your Sunday routine, make it count.

If you’re on twitter, I would love for you to share and use the hashtag #makesundaycount.


Today, I’ll be. . .

Driving up to San Francisco with my husband. Usually involves coffee stops, good music, crazy dance moves that shouldn’t be allowed in public and most always ends with a stop at Whole Foods.

Listening to She and Him [Holiday] on Pandora while I bake these cookies. New favorite Holiday station, thank you Kasey!

Making a big pot of this Kale and White Bean Stew [photo above], recipe found HERE. You may have seen or eaten this at Whole Foods.

and making every bit of it count.

What are you up to on this beautiful Sunday?

I’m on a mission to Make Sunday’s Count in every household.

    Love this idea! Sunday is honestly my least favorite day because it’s stressful when you’re anticipating the start of a new week and all the responsibilities that come with that. But, you’re right. Sunday is still a day and EVERY day should count. So make Sunday count most of all because, hey, it’s still a weekend so why waste it? I posted on Twitter with your hashtag!

    What a great mission! I love Sunday, and plant to enjoy the morning on the couch with my husband catching up on magazines with a cup of tea. I’m thinking about stew simmering on the stove for supper. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Thanks for the reminder, Lisa. I’m headed off to get some fresh flowers at the farmer’s market, get in some pampering time, and then enjoy a friend’s BBQ. Yay for Sundays!

    That soup looks soooo delicious. I would love a bowl of that right now. It’s cold and raining outside and I’m sure that would warm me right up. 🙂

    Fun! The kids headed to the in-laws for Christmas program practice while I got work done, then dinner with the neighbors and storytime with my four little people.
