Sundays have always been about going to church and relaxing afterward. For the last couple of years my family lived with my parents, but since we have moved out we now schedule Sunday Dinners together! We all have busy schedules and Sunday is a day that usually works for everyone, so this is the day that we get together as much as possible. Majority of the time the gathering is at my parent’s house, but from time to time we rotate between my sister house and our house.
Usually, the planning of dinner is done by my mom, sister and I. The husbands and children fall in line. This has always been our tradition even dating back to Family Dinner at my Maternal Grandmother’s house.
My Maternal Grandmother passed away in 1992, and even though she’s no longer physically here her love for feeding her family’s stomach and hearts lives on through us!
Dinner at our house is more informal, we like for everyone to be comfortable and ready to enjoy themselves. We don’t have a dining room, so some people eat at the kitchen counter area, some at the table, and most likely the guys are eating and watching a sporting event of some sort.
Steps to Planning the Perfect Family Dinner…
- Conference call with mom and sister to plan everything out. We usually either talk about what we want to eat to make sure we aren’t making doubles of something.
- Grocery Shop for everything that you need, I try to do one big run because I hate when everyone is together and someone has to run to the store for something. To me, they miss out on some of the fun, so prepare ahead of time so if you have to make a run to the store you can do it before everyone comes over!
- Host prepares the meat for the meal, and everyone else brings sides. When I host I usually prepare the meat, dessert, and some appetizers to munch on prior to the full meal being ready.
- The men are usually responsible for the beverages! From the water, to pop, to beer…usually, the men take care of the drinks!
Did you know…In 2019, Yuengling will celebrate their 190th anniversary with exciting announcements and events, including the release of limited-edition, 190th Yuengling Lager beer cans. These 5 commemorative cans pay tribute to their enduring history, and the entrepreneurial spirit and relentless determination that has made them America’s Oldest Brewery,
- Enjoy and have fun! No matter if this is a formal dinner or not, take the time to enjoy your family! You may not have the largest space, or something may not turn out the way you intended, however, don’t let that stop you from enjoying your time with your family!
What I love about our family dinners is the fact that we are all together. There is lots of laughter and fun, no matter the setting we love being together! I love being able to sit and talk with my mom and sister, even though we talk on a daily basis on the phone and by text, it’s nothing like having us all in one room together!
While the men are watching some sort of sporting event, and the kids are playing, this is the time that we share about upcoming events, different projects we are working on and so on, we literally talk about everything under the sun. A lot of times when we talk about our jobs and goals, my mother gives us advice from when she used to work. She has been retired for 5 years as Director of Diversity and Equal Opportunity at NASA Glenn Research Center. My sister currently holds a Supervisory position in the Insurance field, and I work in Higher Education. Our work experience is very diverse, but as women, we deal with some of the same things.
For this Sunday dinner, the beverage choice is Yuengling. A few years back I learned about Yuengling from my husband. What I didn’t know is as Yuengling is celebrating its 190 year anniversary it is currently operated by its 6th generation, all women, four sisters, who have combined over 60 years of brewery experience — Jennifer, Wendy, Debbie, and Sheryl Yuengling! The sisters grew up in the business and this is currently the best time to be leading a company as women, in a male-dominated industry. The business is a family business and it strives to enrich the local community as a way to help the members of our extended family thrive economically and socially.
Yuengling has been brewing beer in Pottsville, PA since 1829, and the company refers to themselves as “America’s Oldest Brewery.” In celebration of the 190th Anniversary, Yuengling cans are collectors’ items! A new can design will be released each month between December 2018 and April 2019. In January, the cans will showcase the transformation of the iconic eagle imagery that has been on their label since 1829, when their original brewery was called the “Eagle Brewery.”
