Our Family Mealtime Traditions with Ragú

March 25, 2014
Thank you to Ragú for choosing The Kitchen is My Playground as a brand representative and sponsoring this post.

Do you find it difficult to get the whole family together at mealtime? With crazy schedules, it certainly can be tough to get everyone together in the same place at the same time to enjoy a family meal. But growing up, that's exactly what my Mom and Dad did.

Yes, to my parents, family mealtime was sacred. No TV. No newspapers at the table. No phone calls answered. No interruptions. Unless it just couldn't be helped due to a schedule conflict, our entire family gathered at the table together for dinner time. We talked, shared the events of our days, and just generally spent good quality family time together.

And I have very fond memories of our family mealtime traditions. Thank you so much, Mom and Dad!

But I have a confession.

Since getting married and having crazy schedules of our own to contend with, at times the hubby and I haven't been so fabulous at honoring our family mealtime traditions. No, we've had times when we've let mealtime together slip away from us.

But not anymore. We've made the family mealtime tradition a priority once more! And I'm so glad we have. To me, nothing beats the closeness, trust, and strong sense of family developed through sharing mealtime together. Even on nights when one of us has to work extra late, we sit down together at the table for at least a few minutes. And I'm so grateful we do!
