Dining Table Brings Family Together + Homemade AppleSauce "Click"

Print  Friendly and PDF
Times are changing. In this modern era, life is so hectic and stressful that a family gettogether is almost a thing of the past. I so look forward to the time when I can sit together with my family and rehash the day, however mundane the day was.A dining table is something that brings the family together, be it an important occasion or to create precious memories of day to day life.I remember the good old days when I used to sit the at the table drawing/ playing scrabble with my sister while mom made something wonderful in the kitchen for dinner.

Since I have a small kitchen and even smaller dining area, my preferred choice should have been drop leaf tables due to their excellent "saving space" features and their flexibility to be compact or opened to its full size.But I have a dining table similar to the one below, not quite ornate or adorable as this "Lexington Granada Dining Table" , but it is the most used space in my house and not just for eating alone..Almost all my photography for my blog posts are taken here. Also happens to be a favorite spot to hangout with friends, playing cards and what not.
Did you know that a round dining table, like this "Hooker Furniture Cross Creek Perimeter" table promotes equality and respect within a household? Lack of edges mean that there is no head of the table and everyone is equidistant from everyone.Cozy, no?
I totally adore this "Wildon Home Bay City" breakfast nook with its Tile-Topped Table and counter-height stools. I envision myself and my son huddled together over a lengthy breakfast or me teaching him math or science. 
Lastly, this restaurant style "Linon Azalea White Pine Corner Breakfast Nook" has stolen my heart. I so wish for a bigger kitchen with Bay Windows just so I can have my lazy Sunday morning breakfast with my family right here.
Here comes a "Click" of the applesauce that I made with all the apples I picked last week. Recipe will be posted in my next post.
