Let's Eat!

I found a really fun cookbook that I'm loving.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you if the actual recipes are good because I haven't made any of them yet!

But what I can tell you is that it is so much more than just a cookbook.

It's called The Family Dinner - Great Ways to Connect With Your Kids One Meal at a Time.

Here's what it looks like:

And while it contains plenty of recipes, it's really more of a book on the importance of eating dinner together as a family - why it's important and how we can go about actually making it happen.

What I really like about The Family Dinner is that it doesn't just keep bonking us on the head about how we're such awful parents if we're not sitting down to eat family dinner.

Rather, it inspires the reader to give family dinners a try, to tweak it to make it work for you, and most importantly, how to make it doable for everyone.

But my favorite part of the book is the ideas for making family dinner fun for all ages - from reading around the table to conversation starters to silly games.

Lingering around the table and enjoying each others company is the goal.  Not simply checking dinner off your to-do list and moving on to the next item on the agenda.

Check out and see what you think!
