I opened it up late yesterday afternoon and was inspired from the first few pages. I think this could be the book that alters my approach to our evening meal. We always eat at the table together (at least DS and I do – DH isn't always home) but I’ve been feeling depressed about the process lately and really just needed some inspiration to help me recognise all the benefits that come from entering the kitchen with a positive attitude, having a plan & sticking to it, involving DS in the process, if possible, and creating these really lovely daily rituals that I hope DS will remember throughout his life.
(how many post-it note markers?)I'm cooking a recipe from the book for tonight's supper and although I haven’t read the whole thing yet (there’s lots of content beyond the recipes – anecdotes, quotes, and other inspiration), what I’ve seen so far is filling me with enthusiasm. The Family Dinner also has a blog with recent posts (including recipes and table talk suggestions) here.
