A highlight of our recent "staycation" was the ability to enjoy dinner together as a family EVERY NIGHT of the week! While I wish this were the case more regularly, the reality of a marriage between a yoga teacher and a lobbyist is that we more often than not take turns having dinner at home with the babe.
It was with great enthusiasm that we mapped out restaurants we wanted to explore, as well as culinary undertakings in our own kitchen. We chose familiar cuisines and unconventional approaches. We dined on white tablecloths adorned by fine china and ate with our hands from massive, communal platters. Each night was a new and varied experience, but at the end of the week, we could say with enthusiasm that we had dined well, and we appreciated the adventures all the more because we enjoyed them together!
Whether you eat at home or out on the town this week, I encourage you to share the experience with a friend or loved one. Reap the benefits of dining together - and dining well.
