Some of the best memories growing up were family dinners.  Family get-togethers at the table usually include a few things we can count on. Having a few laughs, sharing a few details of our days, good food and some good old fashioned Lipton Iced Tea.

We don’t get a lot of time for family dinners when it is sports season, so on the weekends we really try to make a good meal and spend some quality time with each other. We use meal time as family time.

Now that the kids are getting older and some have jobs we don’t have much time when everyone is at home at the same time. It seams odd, because the times have changed when family dinners are now a rare occasion. That is one of my favorite memories as a child. 5:00 pm meant dad would be walking in the door and he would say, “What’s for Dinner?” Even after I got married, we would go to my parents for dinner on Sundays.

Growing up my Grandma always made Sun Tea. She lived in our guest house and I would find it at her front door when I would go outside. My dad always drank Iced Tea for every meal. I guess that’s where I developed my love for Iced Tea. Some families serve other drinks at dinner, but ours has always been Iced Tea at each meal. It’s is a good choice for the whole family and healthier than sugared drinks.

I usually make a pitcher in the morning and it is usually gone by the end of the day. That’s how much we can drink. Sometimes I add some orange or lemon slices to give it a little kick. I just add some water to my tea kettle and boil it for a minute or two and then add it to the pitcher with several tea bags and fill my glass with ice and pour it over the ice. So quick and delicious and literally costs just pennies to make.  Plus it has lots of benefits.

  1. Dinner time is definitely family time. We always had water with a slice of lemon but I might try iced tea next time 🙂 x

  2. I love sun tea! I remember always having family dinners as a kid. We have them now too since my boys are still young. I’m sure it will get harder as they get older and we get busier.

  3. I love sun tea, but can’t remember the last time I had it. It seems like it’s more of a southern thing, and since I live in Chicago, I don’t see if very often. For dinner we usually are doing milk or water, Friday is a “special drink” like sparkling apple cider.

  4. My husband and I are usually busy in the evenings doing whatever’s on our to-do lists but we always sit down for dinner together and talk about our day. On busy weekends that can be the only time we stop and sit down together, so we really value that ritual, even though it’s just the two of us.

    As for iced tea, this summer I was using my Keurig to brew single (tall) glasses as needed since I’m the only one who drinks it and we didn’t need a pitcher cluttering up the fridge 🙂

  5. Dinner time is important for me, too. No phones, tv is off… so different from the way I grew up.

  6. I recently took a step back from working to spend more time with my family. One of the goals my husband and I had for our new family dynamic was more meals at the table. It’s been amazing for our family and it’s very valuable time with our sons. I’m glad so many others value that time at the table too!
