Chloe Likes To Eat

So this one is touch different- it doesn't contain cocktails (although there is wine) and it isn't as much about the food as it is the setting.


Not to everyone's taste I'm sure, but this what I sat down to on Easter Sunday. 

Families up and down the country enjoy traditional roasted Lamb or go out for lunch or have special cakes. And for my family,  for the 4 people around this table were my dad's parents, T & I, occasions where we're all around the same table are rare, so we tend to place less importance on the exact nature of the food we're eating and more on the fact we're all eating together. For me, breaking bread with family will always be important, we talk, we laugh, we make decisions, we catch up on each other's lives and we share things. 

So whilst this isn't the refinement some people will have enjoyed for Easter Sunday, I especially enjoyed the wine (local to where my extended family live), laughing a lot, sitting around a table for almost 2 hours, eating nothing but cheese, biscuits and grapes and this little 'art piece' (otherwise known as Jill being able to get a grip...)

Grapes in a Glass

Happy bread breaking.

Family time is so important, I am beginning to think this more and more as time goes on. I'm not really one for big meals but I should make more time to spend time with my family.

This is my perfect evening :) I could sit for hours with some cheese and wine and just talk, talk, talk! Family time is so important too :) xxx
