Home For Dinner

 

Dr. Anne Fishel, co-founder of the Family Dinner Project has written the most thought-provoking book entitled Home for Dinner.  The reading is conversational and so interesting as she shares comments from her private practice in Family Therapy.  She says often she will tell a family to go home and have a meal together as this will benefit them more than sitting in her office for a session! Is that powerful or what!  Who would have ever guessed the power of family meals.  For years, family and child specialists have proposed meals together, but recently, the research is finally in that backs this recommendation 100 %.

One conundrum now is that many young adults/parents have no clue how to plan and prepare meals at home.  Reared on fast foods and drive through meals, they are clueless when it comes to preparing a meal with more than one dish.  Fortunately, with access to the internet, help is available.  A simple Google, Bing or Pinterest search will yield more than enough information to get started.  Local Family and Consumer Sciences Cooperative Extension faculty often teach classes in preparing and shopping for healthy food.  Many are no cost.

Dining in with long time friends in their new

“ retirement home” in Atlanta.  Three generations left to right, Shirley, daughter, Dawn and  her  son, Quentin and Bob and Joyce Miles.   We don’t feel any older, but we remember the day Quentin was born!!  We so much enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere eating at their lovely new home.
