From the Sunday Dinner chapter in How to Celebrate Everything:
“As far back as I can remember, it’s been a given that we end the weekend with family at our own table, whether that table has been in our Brooklyn apartment, in our first house in the suburbs, or in my parents’ or sister’s house across the county. Only under special circumstances—Super Bowls, Oscar Nights, invitations we can’t weasel our way out of—do we stray from this policy. I realize I’m not alone here. No matter what Sunday dinner looks like in your house, whether it involves a proper roast on a Wedgwood platter, some dogs on the backyard grill, or the ambient roar of an NFL crowd on TV pulsing in the background, I’m guessing the philosophy behind it is most likely the same: Rest, recalibrate, reconnect. We’ve got a long week ahead of us.”
Pork Lettuce Wraps with Pomegranate are just the thing to make this weekend. For book owners, the recipe is on page 238. For the rest of you, check out this nifty little video tutorial.
