Rediscover Sunday Supper

Welcome to Sunday Supper.  A new feature I started a few weeks 
ago.  Each week I share stories and ideas, thoughts and discoveries.  
Each week I've used a different photo that I've found when I 
googled Sunday Supper.  I have also found some really interesting 
sites, programs and fundraising programs with the title. 
Today at the end of the post you'll find the information about the photo below.

Each week as I am writing my post I am thinking what your thoughts, impressions and memories are of Sunday Supper. 

Do you even think about it or care?  Does Sunday Supper bring back memories of family dinners at home? 

By the time I was a teenager we had pretty much done away with Sunday Supper because of church activities. 

When my children were young we had Sunday Supper at our house.  Sunday Supper was just us me, The Cowboy and our two kids.  They were always simple prepared meals.  We called them
Smorgasbord because we would try fun, new and interesting things.  Once we tried making egg rolls.  We are lovers of fried foods and we tried frying all kinds of things.  

Back in the day when our kids were home there were not cell phones.  Yep you guessed it I am that old. Gasp!

Sunday Supper was a meal that we shared together.  We talked.
The Cowboy was typically home on Sundays (he traveled a lot).
So it was a time we spend together.  After our meal we would 
watch a movie together or play a game.  

Sunday Supper was a special time for our family.  

I kind of think we were lucky back then.  No cell phones. 

It's different now.  

I think it's harder for families.  Even if mom stays home sometimes it's hard with all the activities that kids have to find a day during the week to just have a dinner time together.  

One without the phones or electronics.  

I kind of like the idea. 

 I kind of like the idea that Chip & Jo Anna Gaines incorporated
at their new restaurant Magnolia Table.

No these handle Hello leather pockets are not for menus they are for cell phones. 

Diners are encouraged to hang up the phone.  

Maybe.  Just maybe hanging up the phone is a good thing? 

Maybe turning off the electronics is a way for families to 
Rediscover Sunday Supper.

Did you know I host a link party?  I would love for you to link your family friendly posts.  The party goes all week long.  
You never have to wonder when you can post. 

Any day. Any time.  All week long.  No limit to the number of posts you can link.  Although I suggest a couple posts a day.  I know when I am visiting parties I get burned out going to the same blog.  If I only have a short time to visit I like to go to as many places/blogs as I can.  That's just me.  This is not a rule if you want to link 10 posts at a time go for it! 

And, if you host a party feel free to link up!  

Each post is pinned on The Fabulous Party board.  Click here 
to visit the board. 
Each week I feature 2 posts on my Saturday Happy Homemaker post.  
The featured posts are also featured on the sidebar at the 
Our Holiday Journey blog.
