Family Dinner Done Easy | Food and Drink
My parents taught me that good food will bring people to the table and great company will keep them there. Despite evening swim practices, music lessons and long work hours, my family ate dinner together as often as possible. Sunday dinners were a requirement. (In fairness, with my parents cooking elaborate meals on Sundays that filled the house with tantalizing aromas hours before mealtime, none of us would want to stay away.) Weeknight meals, however, were less elaborate yet still packed with nutrition and flavor. I credit these family dinners as the reason I enjoy cooking and lingering conversation-filled meals as much as I do today.
