Simple Sunday

A Sunday tradition at our home is pancake supper. Complete with eggs and bacons. Mmmmm....breakfast for dinner! It started out of ease as I usually worked Sundays so this is never-fail dinner for my favorite husband to whip up. It's become a pretty regular event.

Do you have a Sunday tradition? Do share! I have a sister who feeds her family popcorn for dinner on Sundays and they watch a movie as a family as well.

Here's our pancake recipe. It's GFCF, sugar free and can be vegan as well. I've made it all ways and they always turn out!
1 1/4 cups flour - I use a rice & sorghum mix but have used straight rice or whole wheat
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp guar gum
1 egg beaten or 2 TBsp water & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup + 2TB rice milk or water or pineapple juice
2 TB pure canola oil.
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix together wet & dry until just mix. Thin as needed with additional milk, water or juice. Bake on nonstick grill. Serve hot with butter, fresh fruit, jam or syrup. We use Summerland Sweets syrup that is sugar free. Yum!

Sundays also include family time such as a trip to the playground, today it was the Inukshuk park, often a visit with friends, and definitely naps. Oh, sweet, sweet naps.

On this Sunday a special trip to secure W's first roller blades took place. He is so excited! It'll be a wonderful father son time while B teaches W to skate. Maybe next year this will be a right of passage for Bup too.
Fresh sand for the sand box and some TV time. It's a good day.
Do you enjoy a "simple Sunday"? What's yours look like?


  1. As a teen I thought Sundays were the most boring day. Now I love the quieter pace. We don't have a set routine (other than church) but it always feels more laid back.
    I have great memories as a kid of going to my grandma's every Sunday for dinner ( along with my cousins) and then settling in to watch Disney and the Beach Combers. Good times I tell ya!!

  2. Ahhh...I had "bath, Disney, Beachcombers and bed" in my post but removed it. I too remember that routine on Sundays. Along with Sunday School and some kind of big meal.
    Right now all I really want on a Sunday...and to SLEEP IN! ~ once the teen yrs come~
