What could be better than a hot homemade crescent roll slathered in butter accompanied by lively and engaging dinnertime conversation? The clinking and clanking of cups, forks, and plates along with the musical hum of excited voices fill the kitchen as everyone sits around the dinner table. It seems these scenarios are happening less and less in today's busy world. The sacred hour of dinnertime has been replaced by scattered kitchen snacking, frantic frozen meals, and late arrivals home from work. This time in which family members bond, tummies are fed, and souls are nourished is often set aside for only special occasions.
I'm not saying dinnertime at our house always looks like a picturesque painting of happy family life because it certainly does not. I do know, however, that the effort to sit down and have dinner together each night has rewarded our family tenfold. What is the key? Conversation.
There is no need to make conversation at the dinner table exceptionally stimulating unless this is your preference. Often the simplest of questions can lead to the most heart-warming moments. By simply asking "How was your day?", "What did you do today?" "How are you feeling?" you can make someone feel validated and loved and give them the opportunity to reciprocate that love.
Here is a list of fun ideas for dinnertime conversation to get you rolling?
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."
"Your DVO cookbook software saves me time and money!"
"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!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
