You know in a good rom-com there are big, weekly family dinners?
You have the funny uncle, intelligent grandpa, sarcastic teenage cousin, etc. Well, that’s my family. Very stereotypical but there’s never a boring minute when we’re together.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I love Sundays. Waking up and relaxing with a book and big mug of coffee, not needing to rush.
Then at night, it’s time for family dinner. I look forward to it all week and I figured it was time I invite you along to be part of the family for a night.
Even I need to check my own recipes sometimes.
And make long-hair into facial hair.
What? Your family doesn’t do that?
When everyone starts complaining that they’re “so full” and “couldn’t eat another bite”, it’s time to pull out dessert.
Belts will immediately be loosened and you’ll hear a chorus of “well, maybe just a small piece . . .”.
The sun has now set and everyone has gone home.
I’m currently staring at a mountain of dishes (and I’ve already washed half) drinking a big cup of tea to counter the effects of one too many glasses of wine.
Just kidding. There really isn’t such a thing as one too many glasses of wine.
There really is nothing better than a meal shared with all your favorites.
Do you have family dinners too or some other tradition you look forward to?
