            Or you may call it a Large Chicken Nugget, served with big peas and little peas and tangy buttermilk mashed potatoes. The name is pretty fancy, but the dish is not, and to a kid it’s really just a big flat chicken nugget.

                from Family Dinner Added 577 0 0

                Make the expression of gratitude part of your family dinner ritual. However you say it -- with a prayer or blessing, a question for the table, quotes, stories, a few simple words of thanks -- gratitude is a basic ingredient to a healthy life. Here's an idea: print out some pre-written "gratitude quotes" (selections are in the "Grace is Gratitude" chapter of the book) and place one under each person's dinner plate. At an appropriate moment, explain that everyone has a special quote under their plate and go around the table reading them. It's a great way to get everyone involved in expressing gratitude.
