In most families, there’s a lot going in the dining room.
However, the rest of life is also important, and I love Molly’s reminder to plant bulbs. Selecting new bulbs, one of my favourite fall activities, helps reconcile me to the colder weather that is coming.
As for the dining room, this Digest is full of information. From a detailed explanation of gravy-making (with a step-by-step recipe) to preparing for the holidays (yes, it’s that time already!); from decorating a dining room for a frugal graduation party to a quick and scrumptious peanut butter pie; from determining the cost per meal to using a glass cutter; and from discussing allergies (with a neat online ingredient substitution assistant) to discussing both the spiritual and frugal aspects of weight control, all are discussed in the usual chatty style, full of tips and links.
However, the most essential activity that happens in our dining room has nothing to do with food, calories, or cooking. When I was a child, we read the Bible at every single meal. My husband’s family did as well. And now our family does so, too. That is truly one of the most important habits we have. In “Inspiration!” Patricia Hunter shares how and why her family has started this practice.
And finally, here’s this month’s Molly quote:
“Never argue at the dinner table for the one who is not hungry always gets the best of the argument.” Richard Whately
