We had friends over for dinner tonight, Deb & Peter and their daughter, Emma, age 15. This is the family of Alex, Chloe’s longtime boyfriend. Alex graduated from PSCS with Chloe in 2010 and Emma attended PSCS for a couple of years. The point of this is that, basically, our two families are all friends.
Fixing the dinner and sitting down to eat with good conversation got me thinking about Sunday night dinner rituals. Then that got me thinking about Melinda’s and my niece Stephanie, a graduate of the University of Washington. When she was a college student, she’d come over for a home-cooked meal nearly every Sunday and usually brought along a friend (or three). That’s her on the right in today’s photo as a little kid soccer player.
For me growing up, Sunday night dinner was the fanciest meal of the week.
Today’s Prompt: How about you? Got a Sunday night dinner ritual?
