Q & A

I know, I’m what’s cooking-but I’m set to write an article about family-friendly and yet romantic meals.
I’m thinking go with a theme-color, ethnic cuisine, music

What are you all doing to keep it romantic, even though you may have kids/grandkids joining you at the table?

    • We put my grandaughter’s juice in a small wine glass. She gets to toast with everyone at the table which is really cute. I dim the lights and put out nice linens. We have music.

      Some additional thoughts

      Dessert, serve one per couple at the table so they have to share - with one fork or spoon

      Seat loved ones close enough to each other to play footsie under the table

      Start a compliment circle around the table, either sharing a sweet memory or stating something they like about another member at the table

      Don’t jump up and immediately start doing the dishes. Clear the table only as is necessary but come back and sit and have continued conversation after dinner

      or take the conversation into the other room and have soft music playing

    • good suggestions Cynthia!  I’ve got to print them out and combing for more!  If you don’t mind-I’m going to possibly use your name and since it’s chocolate-maybe add your site?

      cross your fingers that my editor still wants it.  I had an article come out today in the print edition-it was supposed to go online last Weds and still hasn’t been put up!
