Aduna familia la masa! / Gather the family at dinner!

dinner

In ultima vreme este din ce in ce mai greu sa strangi toata familia la masa. Programul diferit, comoditatea de a te arunca in canapea cu farfuria in mana in timp ce te uiti la serialul preferat, e-mailul acela pe care il trimiti pe ultima suta de metri. Dar uitam importanta de a petrece timp de calitate alaturi de cei dragi. De cand nu ai mai strans toata familia la masa, sa va bucurati de o cina sanatoasa, gatita in casa si de comfortul oferit de caminul vostru?

Iata cateva idei care vor strange familia la masa si va aduce zambete si voie buna:

 

1. Stabileste un program

Fie ca alegeti sa cinati o data pe luna, la sfarsit de saptamana sau in fiecare zi la o anume ora, important este sa va puteti tine de acest program.  Ai grija insa sa respecti programul si nevoile fiecarui membru al familiei. Nu uita ca trebuie sa iei in calcul si timpul de preparare al mancarii!

 

2. Meniul

Alcatuieste meniul dinainte. Implica-i si pe cei dragi. Roaga-i sa aleaga dintr-o lista de optiuni, astfel vei implica toata familia iar tie iti va fi mai usor, daca te vei organiza din timp. De asemenea poti alege zile tematice cum ar fi clatitele de sambata sau seara italiana! Astfel de zile vor fi asteptate cu mult entuziasm. Gaseste retete inedite, doar internetul este plin de idei gustoase si creative.

 

3. Gatiti in familie

Implica-i pe cei dragi in pregatirea mesei. Cei mici se vor simti importanti si in plus vor deprinde obiceiuri sanatoase, pe care chiar tu i le vei arata. Ce sa mai vorbim de cat de incantati vor fi sa manance ceva ce au pregatit chiar ei. Aranjati masa impreuna! Incearca pe cat posibil ca totul sa arate foarte aspectuos. Asta va aduce o atmosfera aparte ce va incanta toata familia.

 

4. Pastreaza o atmosfera vesela

O familie care se reuneste la servirea mesei, discuta pe un ton calm, se apreciaza si se lauda reciproc sporeste pofta de mancare. Masa este o ocazie perfecta pentru a aduna familia si a petrece timp de calitate.

La masa nu se vorbeste? Poti incalca aceasta regula in astfel de momente. Exista chiar si jocuri care vor intretine o atmosfera placuta si a incuraja conversatia la masa. Iata cateva dintre ele:

 

  • Termina povestea

Cineva de la masa va incepe o poveste, iar apoi, pe rand, fiecare participant va adauga cate ceva, o simpla fraza sau, de ce nu, chiar un moment narativ intreg. Pe masura ce masa se apropie de final, incercati sa gasiti si un sfarsit pentru poveste. Acest joc va aduce multe zambete iar cina in familie se va transforma intr-o amintire placuta.

  • Recapitularea zilei

Fiecare membru al familiei povesteste, pe rand, ce a facut pe parcursul zilei. Asta pare destul de banal, nu? DAR, haide sa complicam putin lucrurile! Alegeti dinainte o litera pe care nimeni nu are voie sa o foloseasca la inceput de cuvant. De exemplu, daca am ales sa nu folosim litera „G”, nu vom putea folosi cuvintele „ghiozdan”, „gard”, „gustare” sau oricare alt cuvant care incepe cu aceasta litera. Acest joc este un exercitiu foarte bun pentru imbogatirea vocabularului, si in plus este extrem de amuzant.

  • Vorbeste fara pauze

Asta cu siguranta va aduce rasete si voie buna. Cum se joaca? Este foarte simplu: fiecare participant trebuie sa vorbeasca timp de 30 de secunde, spontan, fara sa se pregateasca dinainte. Subiectul? Aici apare partea amuzanta. Subiectul nu se stie dinainte, acesta va fi ales de un alt jucator.  Vorbitorul nu are voie sa faca pauze mai lungi de 2 secunde si nu are voie sa spuna „aaaa…” . Subiectele pot fi alese din orice domeniu, de la foarte permisive (cum ar fi „mere”), pana la foarte restrictive (cum ar fi „Ultima piesa de teatru vazuta”).

 

Tu cum strangi familia la masa?

dinner

English:

Lately, it’s getting harder to get the whole family at the table. The different program, the convenience of throwing you in the sofa with your food dish while you look at your favorite series, the e-mail that you send on the last hundred meters. But we forget the importance of spending quality time with loved ones. How long have you not gathered all your family at the table, enjoy a healthy home-cooked dinner and the comfort of your home?

Here are some ideas that will bring family to the table, and bring smiles and good will:

1. Set up a program

Whether you choose, to dine once a month, at the end of the week or every day at a particular time, it is important to keep up with this program. Be careful to respect the program and the needs of each family member. Do not forget that you have to take into account the cooking time!

 

2. The menu

Make the menu in advance. Involve your loved ones too. Ask them to choose from a list of options, so you will involve the whole family and it will be easier for you if you organize yourself early. You can also choose thematic days such as Saturday’s pancakes or Italian evenings! Such days will be expected with great enthusiasm. Find unique recipes, the internet is full of tasty and creative ideas.

 

3. Cook in the family

Engage your loved ones in preparing your meal. The little ones will feel important, plus they will learn healthy habits that you will even show them. What to say about how excited they will be to eat something they have prepared for themselves. Arrange the meal together! Try as far as possible that everything looks very good. This will bring a special atmosphere that will delight the whole family.

 

4. Keep a joyful atmosphere

A family reuniting at the table, talking in a calm tone, appreciating and praising each other increases the appetite. Dinner is a perfect opportunity to gather family and spend quality time.

There is no talk at the table? You may violate this rule at such times. There are even games that will keep a pleasant atmosphere and encourage the conversation at the table. Here are some of them:

  • End the story

Someone at the table will start a story, and then, in turn, each participant will add something, a simple phrase, or why not, even a whole narrative moment. As the table approaches the end, try to find an end for the story. This game will bring you lots of smiles and your family dinner will turn into a pleasant memory.

 

  • Review of the day

Each member of the family tells, in turn, what he did during the day. That sounds pretty trivial, right? BUT, let’s complicate things a little! Choose in advance a letter that no one is allowed to use at the beginning of the word. For example, if we chose not to use the letter “G”, we will not be able to use the words “good”, “girl”, “green” or any other word that begins with this letter. This game is a great exercise for enriching the vocabulary, and it is also extremely funny.

 

  • Talk without breaks

That will surely bring you laughter and good pleasure. How to play? It’s very simple: every participant has to talk for 30 seconds, spontaneously, without getting ready in advance. The subject? Here comes the funny part. The subject is not known in advance, it will be chosen by another player. The speaker is not allowed to pause longer than 2 seconds and is not allowed to say “aaaa …”. Topics can be chosen from any field, from very permissive (like “apples”) to very restrictive (such as “The Last Performing Theater”).
