I remember doing this when I was very young and my great grandparents were still alive. The whole family- my grandma and grandpa, my immediate family, my great aunts and their families, etc.- would often get together for Sunday dinner. And, of course, my great grandma went all out- fried chicken, homemade rolls, lots and lots of veggies, homemade apple pie, you name it! Things have changed- they're no longer living, I've moved an hour away, everyone's too busy, restaurants, along with everything else, are open, so we never have the *official* Sunday dinner anymore. I'm thinking that I might resurrect something like it when we finally move into a house- attendance not necessary, but everyone is always invited kind of thing. Does anyone still get together for an official Sunday dinner? How do you go all out? Do people love it or is it a chore for them (and you)? Sort of a back to the future challenge for me!
