Setting Family Traditions

My wife, Heather, is all about traditions (she can remember events that happened in her younger life according to what tradition that event centered around). Of course she would want to do the same for her children. Enter:

The Family Favorite Things Supper

Now, she will be the first to admit that she totally stole the idea from one of her college buddies. But, boy did she take off with it.

So, what is it?

During the holiday season, every single member of our family is allowed to choose their favorite dish that was prepared at some point during the year. Heather prepares the dish and places the finished product on the dinner table – family style. Before totally devouring our own choice meal (why wouldn’t we), we must first fill our plates with a small sampling of each dish.

Dish 1: Spaghetti & Meatballs

Dish 2: Mac & Cheese
