I received a copy of "The Family Dinner" for Christmas.  We have always enjoyed our meals together crowded around our small wooden table nestled in the kitchen. So, while having a family dinner is nothing new for us, the book reminded me of the importance of including the kids in meal prep and presentation. They enjoy chopping veggies, stirring, or adding ingredients to a bowl. They take pride in setting a simple yet special table. Cups filled? Check. Napkins out? Check. An extra towel for spills? Candles lit? Check check.

Sometimes dinner might be prepared by hands other than your own. Go ahead. Order curried chicken and butternut squash. Pull up a chair and take a load off. You're home.
