I recently made my Asian soup at my in-laws house and my mother in-law decided to bring out some chopsticks that she had for everyone to use while eating.
My kids loved this idea and had all kinds of fun using them. Chop sticks were a great idea for this meal. Not only did using chop sticks give them a peek into another culture it made the meal more fun and memorable.
Yes, the meal took a little longer to eat, but that is part of what made it such an enjoyable meal. We stepped back from the rush of everyday life and enjoyed something a little different.
We were creating memories.
Something as simple as chopsticks can turn an everyday meal into a fun and memorable one.
We should all stop and look around more often to see what simple things we can do to turn an everyday meal into a special memory.
