Every Day

Serves: 5



From the Finding Fun in Food Traditions article.

I really love these ideas for making everyday life a little more fun.

Culture Night: We talked about this last month, but it is worth mentioning again. Choose one night a month to try different foods and learn about the culture, country, and people it comes from.

Family Movie Night: Once or twice a month (as often as works for your family) make an event of Pizza and a Movie. A simple homemade pizza and a rented movie make for a fun evening and if your family knows they can plan on it the last Friday of every month (for instance) they really do look forward to the time together.

Try It Tuesday: Every Tuesday try a new recipe. Something as simple as this can become a really fun tradition in your family and might even cut down on the moans and groans that often come with new recipes (at least at my table). If they know it is "try it Tuesday" and it is an event they can look forward to then hopefully they will be excited to try something new! If you love the new recipe then add it to your normal lineup. If you don't, well, you tried.

Traditions are meant to bring us closer together. Creating common celebration, experiences, and fun gives our families the chance to share, learn, and love, and that is what it is really all about! So, I hope whatever traditions you pick up along the way will bring love and laughter to your kitchen, home, and family!

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
