Sunday Supper / Cena Domenicale

When Renee Plummer makes Sunday Supper at her house, the whole family shows up-and not just the immediate one. For good reason, her Sunday Sauce with Meatballs is fantastic, and so are her Lambchop Lollipops, not to mention her terrific Tomato Salad. Mary Ann lends a hand, to make this a Super Sunday.
