Family Table

Indonesia during monsoon season





Do you have a tradition of having family meals? It seems that no matter what country, culture or upbringing we might have, sharing a meal with people we love is on everyone's agenda no matter how rarely it might actually happen. Nowadays in our ever busy world, it’s seems it’s a harder task to gather everyone at the same table, so these photos by the brilliant Steve McCurry make me miss those Sunday dinners at grandma’s house back in the day. Ah, good memories:)

Our family dinner table was like Speakers’ Corner in London. We discussed, debated, argued, declaimed - all of us at the same time. - E. Thomson Earl

P.S: The hungry planet.
P.P.S: From grandma with love!

(Thanks, Stephanie)

Most of our family lives in California so our family meetings are only twice a year but my husband and I try to eat together at least one meal each day.

I love this series, there's also one that shows groceries for families from different countries. It's all very eye-opening. Our dinners tend to be a long affair. There's a lot of story telling, talking, discussing, debating and eating. There's only three of us, two adults and a nine year old but dinners can last up to 2 hours in our house. Even on week nights. We also go around the table and discuss what we're grateful for and what we're disappointed about from the day :)

Vanisha, that is so cool! I love long dinners with chatter, laughter and tons of discussions. How wonderful! Also, yes, I wrote about the groceries from different countries. Indeed, very eye-opening and totally interesting, isn't it?
