Telling a story: Brunch
When I was young, we would always sit down at the family table to eat dinner together. It was one of the rules my Mum was not flexible about. I remember begging to eat in front of the TV and could not understand why we always ate at the table. Now, I am a mother and I have adopted this into our family routine. It is now my kids who beg to eat in front of the TV, and my only exception to the rule is our movie and pizza night.
However, we have an extremely busy schedule, and sometimes that means we don’t eat at the same time. To compensate, we have started eating Brunch on the weekend. We enjoy fruits, fresh breads, muffins, pao de queijo, juice and coffee. It is our time to catch up on the week and share our stories. It is a relaxed atmosphere, so we can enjoy just spending time together. I don’t know about the rest of my family, but it is my favourite time of the week.
