Third Sunday Dinner Time, March 2013

Perfect weather for dining outside.  I love this time of year.

     I love Third Sunday Dinner and can't wait each month until it comes. Last month was amazing. I really loved the Deep Fried French Toast. So good.

   My family and I  have been doing Third Sunday Dinners for over four years now. You would think we would get tired of doing it. But we don't,  we just love it more and more. It's not always easy, and sometimes we are beat from the week, but each Third Sunday comes and we end the day filled with joy.

     This Sunday I am going Italian. It's easy and everyone loves a good pasta dish. I am going to bake fresh Italian flat bread to go with the meal. Easy and amazing.

     The weather is perfect for dining outside. It makes it so much fun to have it out in the open. We have to enjoy the weather, summer comes to fast in Arizona.

     So I am getting out the large roaster and the pasta pots. Tomorrow I will cook a big pot of barley, it works great in pasta sauce and extends the meat. It helps cut the cost and makes a wonderful hearty red sauce. I have the yeast and flour and I have tons of fresh rosemary growing in the yard, for the flat bread. So I am ready for another wonderful Third Sunday Dinner.

Rosemary Flatbread

Rosemary Flat Bread is the perfect bread to fix for  large groups. It's fast and the house will smell great. I have two large pizza stones in my oven and each one of these bakes in about seven minutes.

The dough.

I can make the dough up ahead. I learned a trick. I use a sour dough starter in the dough. It allows me to make the dough ahead and the starter keeps the dough alive. Just yeast would over proof, and the dough would die.

   Tuesday I will post the recipes and everything that happened at this months Third Sunday Dinner. It is all about opening up our hearts and homes to those who need fellowship and love. I love what food can do and the power that comes when food and people unit.

     I hope your Sunday is as good as mine.  Have a great weekend.  Chef Brad~America's Grain Guy
