Serve with love. I read a great tip for moms one time. It said, it you worked so hard on your meal that you could not serve it with a warm smile, you were better off serving pb&j for supper. Be present at the dinner table. We had a rule, no harsh words at the dinner table. If that occurred, they had to leave the table and ask to return after they had settled. (It worked pretty well, nothing is perfect! Sometimes, Mom and Dad forget the guidelines!) Make enough to share with a neighbor or a college student. We took some to Hope in med school this weekend.
