You might choose to prepare the main dish yourself but ask others to bring side dishes and dessert. Or you might choose to do it all because you love it. Just remember that you are starting this because it is meant to be fun — if you realize it’s no longer working for you, consider farming out more tasks to others to ease your burden.
Decide on the menu. Do you want to cook the same menu (with small tweaks) each week or use the Sunday lunch as an opportunity to try new things? The traditional English-style Sunday roast includes roast beef, mashed potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. But there’s no reason you couldn’t do French bistro favorites, a vegan feast, Moroccan tagine or a classic American-style turkey dinner. It’s your thing … do what sounds yummy.
