We are big believers in eating dinner as family. We try to eat as a family for all mealtimes that we can but dinner is extra special in our house because it is always family mealtime. Ragú® sponsored this blog post. The opinions and text are all mine.
Eating Dinner As Family Means Family Bonding Time
We cherish eating dinner as family because it brings us all together, face to face, to share our stories of the day. No tablets, no phones, no books allowed. It is special family time and something that simple and sacred makes it magical. Since family meal time is a routine at our house, it can sometimes go unappreciated in exactly how wonderful it is. But when I stop to think about it, family mealtime is one of my favorite times. Everyday when we sit down and say our prayer, I really do feel thankful for the my family and for the wonderful food on our table.
Is your family eating together? Family mealtime often involves the kids helping me cook a bit before we get to the table. They don’t always help out but when they do, it makes things twice as fun. I love that extra time with them and I like knowing that they are learning how to help prepare food. My daughter usually helps me make salad because she loves chopping and sneaking pieces of red bell peppers and cucumbers! My son helps me layer the lasagna with noodles, beef, spinach, ricotta, mozzarella, andRagú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce, because that is his favorite meal. We all help out when my husband makes tortellini from scratch- he says our little fingers are perfect for the job!
Whether we are cooking with the kids or listening to them tell funny stories of what they did with their friends that day, we love family mealtime. And the magic of family mealtime is that we can count on it. We know that everyday, at least once, we get that time together as a complete family with nothing to do but enjoy our meal and talk about our day. You know what I’m talking about- the magic you feel when good food, family and friends come together. You know the feeling.
In 2015, Ragú® wants us to put the magic back in mealtime by enjoying it as a family. And that’s Saucesome! Because family time is something to celebrate every day.
