With all the tasty baked goods on Pass the Sushi it’s hard to give the day to day dinners any of the limelight but I feel really strongly on solid family dinners and almost every night I try to have something on the table.
I grew up with family dinner – every night. It was nothing fancy (most nights just Shake and Bake) but it was a meat, starch and vegetable – the basics for any solid meal. I’m grateful for those dinners and not nights eating in front of the television. Now a days, not every meal I put on the table is complicated (heck, we know I’m not the next Food Network Star) or photo worthy, but they are good and I can’t imagine not having them.
Not only is a good dinner healthy and rewarding but its great unwind time with the people you share your space with – or if you’re solo, just unwind time. No TV, phones or other media – just simple, quiet time to decompress. Some of my favorite nights are the ones we spend just sitting at the table laughing at the pets. I wouldn’t trade those moments for the world.
