Fun Family Meal Idea At Home
Recently my daughter studied the Japanese culture intensely at school. We decided over Spring Break to do our own Japanese meal at home and it was such a fun family meal!! I bought sushi at a local store, made udon noodles in miso broth, grilled asparagus, had sushi rice and teriyaki chicken. For dessert we bought mochi in a couple of flavors. We setup the living room floor with a tablecloth, chopsticks, candles, flowers, sat on pillows. They spent some time in the day making menus of all the offerings, made origami figures and really spent some time decorations. We had a blast and I would highly recommend doing this as a family meal together. They were involved, interested, engaged and happy. Kind of like a restaurant in your own house! If you have a picky eater, this is a great way to open them up to a fun family experience with new offerings in a non-threatening way. Keep things fun!
