Making Family Dinners Fun

This week...

DELIGHTFUL DINING: More moon pebbles, please!

Use silly names for the foods you eat. Corn isn't "corn" but rather "moon pebbles." Spaghetti is "monkey brains," and salad is "the chewsen one." Make up funny and even some gross names. Kids will love naming and eating their "exotic" foods.


TABLE TOPICS: Never A Dull Moment
  • If you could re-name your family members, what would you name them? What name would you choose for yourself?
  • What should we do more of as a family?
  • If you could go somewhere with just mom (or just dad), where would you go?

FLAVORFUL FAVORITES: Brooke's MoROCKIN' Chicken
