Do you have weekly family dinners?

We go to my mom's once a week & his mom's once a week. Usually there are grandparents there, too. What do you usually have for dinner? My mom normally cooks at her house. At my SO's house, his mother & I usually do it together. Last night we went over & I made chicken pot pie, a giant salad, and some pecan pumpkin pie for dessert - so yummy!

  • Oh that is so nice that you get together with your family like that!
    We dont but I am planning a get together (a Wii party) soon with my hubby's mom, unc and aunt and cousins soon. Maybe we could start doing this at least once a month or something. You planted a great idea for me....thanks!

  • No, we have nightly family dinners right here at home. I do all of the cooking & baking and we all sit down at the table together to eat (me, DH, DS, and my Dad), then we all pitch in to clean up.

  • Oh, that sounds really good, blueyedgrl!

    That sounds so much fun 3gigglemonsters! I love Wii. I'm glad I gave you a good idea!!

    That's nice that you have dinner as a family every night, anon! My fiance & I do eat dinner together every night, also. I normally do all the cooking, but he's been helping me out a little more recently, as I'm very pregnant! I can't wait until our little girl is here & we can all sit down and have dinner together!

  • We have dinner every night as a family. Even if we are eating canned soup it's done together.
