Time Out for Breaking Bread…

This past week, Mommy went to a “food” conference for 2 days, so I got to take Malachy to school for two mornings. It was really cool. We were the first ones there in the morning, and we had some dim sum. Shien had let me know how there was a group of them who ate together and shared their food together each morning, so I was able to partake in that. Malachy shared his dim sum and others shared their McDonald’s pancakes, macaroni soup, and Gatorade. The next day, I bought even more dim sum for everyone, and it was just nice that everyone was with their child starting off the day, eating and sharing with each other. It would have been even nicer if it was for longer than 15-20 minutes…
Watching Jamie Oliver’s, Food Revolution, made me think. Why is it that we only eat one meal together with our kids, if even? How different things could be if we got to eat together more with friends and family?
I remember one Chinese New Year, where my sister and I got to go home for lunch on a school day. That was special. Eating lunch with the whole family on a school day. Maybe we’d all eat healthier if we all got to eat together more and break bread… 😉
