Why Family Meals?
One of my fondest memories as a child is gathering around the table and having family meals. At the time I did not realize how important they were or even cherish them for that matter. The older I get, the more I have come to realize just how special those time truly are to me. It was not about the food, although it was delightful (nothing beats a mom’s cooking), but rather it was about the moments that we shared and the conversations that were exchanged.
How often does your family meet at the table for family meals? With a world full of busy schedules, extracurricular activities, and long commutes the thought of planning around everyone’s schedule can be a little daunting. Experts are constantly encouraging family meals, but the “why” behind the encouraged gesture is not always talked about.

The start of Fall brings lots of great traditions for individuals and families. One of my favorite tradition, that happens this time of the year, is the opening of the State Fair of Texas. The moment Big Tex gets to say “Howdy Folks” to welcoming visitors.
Most people think of one thing when they hear the State Fair of Texas is open….FOOD. It’s hard not to get drawn to the unique food options like Bacon Wrapped Turkey Legs and Fried Twinkies. It amazes me how something you didn’t think could be deep fried…is deep fried on the menu!

Even though summer is coming to an end, it is still plenty hot outside; and there is nothing like a cool, sweet treat to beat the heat. Homemade fruit popsicles can be a fun and kid friendly treat to help cool down. They are super easy to make, perfect for getting the kids involved. Imagine how excited they will be to eat something they made themselves... they probably won’t even be able to wait for them to freeze! Most popsicle recipes require very few ingredients and can be customized in hundreds of ways, only limited by your imagination.
