As I type this, I can smell the pancetta, garlic, and ground beef of my boyfriend's famous Sunday Ragu browning in the kitchen. (It's all I can do not to run in there and start eating the half-cooked sauce with a huge wooden spoon.) It's his one fall-back recipe, picked up from a few months living in Bologna, and it's become a Sunday tradition. We have the time to let it bubble for hours. He usually has extra red wine that wants to be finished. And as hungry as we are, there are always leftovers, perfect for a quick mid-week dinner.
For me, Sunday's the perfect time for cooking projects—no standing plans, no need to go out, and the promise of home-cooked meals all week. What about you? Do you have a Sunday night cooking tradition?
