What a fun challenge! Dinner, supper, the evening meal is an opportunity to establish a daily feast or celebration of sustenance, to gather your nuclear family together, share stories of the day, and unwind .
Yeah, right. I am amazed at how rushed and chaotic this time was for me when my four children were living at home and involved in extra-curricular activities!
However, they are living on their own, now. Their schedules are their own, and my schedule is that I work part-time 2 days a week and my partner works from home. I have re-claimed dinnertime for savoring food and conversation! I like to have a glass of wine or a gin cocktail or simply ginger ale with a lime wedge to wet my whistle while I prepare a meal for two in our tiny kitchen. Jazz by Chris Botti, Chet Baker, or any of the vocalists from the ’40s-’60s keeps me humming along in a great mood for evening pleasures.
My camera comes out for special dinner occasions, a new recipe or a holiday meal with family. I love the bustle of a potluck dinner with my children, and I fully acknowledge that they are better cooks than I. My mother’s dinners were elegant affairs where she was the clear Commander in Chief. (There’s one photo taken at her table – a distinct difference in style.) And I love dinner outdoors by the campfire or on the lawn of a music festival. Such a lot of delicious memories!
These pictures are great! You can feel the love and laughter around the dinner table on those occasions! 🙂
Thanks, Camila! I appreciate your visit! Just going to pop over to your site now…
Good food with lovely kin! And I gotta love those books 🙂
That’s definitely been a staple from generation to generation! Thanks, Bruce!
I see you. like I, love to set a beautiful table! Joy!
I do enjoy pulling things out of our “museum” and setting them up with the sparkly glasses and candles to create an atmosphere! A table is a great canvas!
It is! So is the stove, but I leave that to the hubby. And then there are the dishes.
Which take some time now that I do them by hand! Again, I put on some music and putter away quite happily. 🙂
You can’t have too many books or too much cheese and biscuits.. best of all you can’t have too many smiles…
I am indeed rich, then!
You are !
