One of the most important activities for a family to enjoy is sharing a meal together. It provides us with an opportunity to gather together and share our thoughts and ideas as well as our triumphs or challenges of the day. I’m sure we have all read the research that shows that families that eat together enjoy many benefits.
Some of those benefits include:
- better nutrition
- more proficient language skills
- kids who are less likely to use drugs
Recently I posted about my father’s fabulous rum cake recipe. (See: Jack Ryan’s Famous Rum Cake!) Posting that got me to wondering about what recipes other families in Mississauga cherish. We live in a marvelous multi-cultural city and that would lead me to believe that there certainly must be some wonderful recipes out there!
So… in honour of family day I’m asking you to tell us about one of your favorite family recipes. You can just write a paragraph anout the recipe or post the whole recipe for others to enjoy.
