I forgot we had a kitchen table...

Most nights for dinner, we sit in the living room (or in front of the computer) to eat dinner and watch TV. Usually there is no talking, just watching and chewing.

This is normal for us...it's what we have done for.... well, for a very long time. Tonight however, is going to be different. I have decided for the first time in months we are going to sit at the kitchen table to eat dinner (after I clean off the papers and other miscellanous items that seem to appear).

Roasted chicken with stuffing, corn on the cob, garlic mushrooms and pears. I'll let you know how it goes.

UPDATE

Dinner went well. I learned a few things.
  1. Contagion can eat corn on the cob like a cartoon character...I swear I heard the sound of typing and then a DING! when he finished eating a row!
  2. Apparently Clone claims me as his mother only because I eat butter...at least that's what I think he said
  3. Corn will stick to the forehead of a 3 year old for 30 minutes without moving
  4. Boopie actually knows how to set the table! (not sure where he learned that)
  5. There was an intense discussion about how margarine is more like plastic than butter
It was nice to actually have a sit down dinner. Maybe we should do that more often...maybe...

It went very well. The bird was delicious, the corn was perfect and the stuffing was great. The chicken was perfect... even if it was cooked upside down! :D

Yummy! Sounds nice. We try to eat at the table, even if it is just takeout.

Careful what you wish for -- you might not want to hear some things that you WILL hear over dinner... :)

I am glad you did this. I think dinner, and family at the table is IMPORTANT. We do it every night here, some nights I even insist we do it out of doors.

What Ogre said.

I mean, have you READ some of Boudicca's dinner-talk horror-stories?
