Sunday Night Dinner

Every Sunday we sit down for a nice family dinner (we eat dinner together every night, but Sunday we relax, enjoy ourselves, and take our time with dinner).

And since it is the new year, I thought I would try something new- Sunday Night Dinner's. 
I am always looking for new recipes to try or updates to classics.  So I thought this would be a great forum to share ideas and hopefully find new recipes.
