Setting Intentions for Family Meals

| 1/9/2013 11:02:00 AM

At our house, Sundays will be about setting an intention or focus for the week to come. Last year we focused on more of the practical matters of family meals. We still want to think about meal planning and healthy ingredients, but our most important mission is to celebrate the time we have together. For our family, for the coming week and beyond, our focus will be bringing joy and celebration to our everyday family meals.

We're rolling back into a normal routine with all of us spending long days at work and school. Our time together each morning and evening rushes by and is often diminished by stress, frustration, complaints and exhaustion. We've just had two weeks of beautifully slow mornings and evenings, and I'm hopeful that we can carry our vacation ways back to real life.

Celebrating Kings Day last Sunday was a foundation for our intention. Our pseudo-party was low key, not too fancy, and didn't require hours of sweating in the kitchen. The celebratory atmosphere was stoked by four kids running around the house with flashlights, a few felt crowns and one delicious, crumby cake.

It’s always fun to host a family meal what’s even better is the joy kids get from it. Its a way for all the family members to get together. For such family meals it’s always important to have great foods on table. You have to take care of everyone from the kids to the old ones of-course including young and adult people. But having only good food isn't all you need for such family meals you need to bring much more fun to it. And one of the ways to do so in recent days have been you can call them and will have a great service. It’s fun for everyone starting from kids to old members of the family.
