Family Dinners And Why They Matter Plus Enter To Win $25 Gift Card

Today is National Pasta Day! Can you believe it!? This is my kind of holiday. We are SUCH HUGE pasta fans here at the Sweeney house. I mean – can you blame us? Half Italian and born in NYC. It’s literally in our genes. LOL! Growing up, Sunday nights meant marinara sauce at Grandma’s house. Now that I am a mom to three beautiful little children, I still keep that tradition alive. Whether I’m serving meatballs or alfredo sauce one thing is certain – love is the secret ingredient. 

Family Dinners And Why They Matter Plus Enter To Win $25 Gift Card

Mets fan eating pasta

There’s nothing my family loves more than to gather around a table and break bread together. It’s during this time that we find out about what’s going on at school, how our kids’ grades are doing, and what friends have come and gone. The deep stuff – the everyday fluff. I want it all and it all seems to pour out in between courses. There’s something about relaxing into your seat around a dining room table while soaking in real life with the kids. It’s truly my favorite part of the day.

I thought today would be a great day to help one of my readers do the same. Here’s a chance for one of you to win a $25 gift card that you can put towards a family meal – anywhere you’d like. Take your family out for a night out filled with delicious food and great conversation and use this gift card to offset some of the expense. woman eating pasta at Olive Garden
