A Family Bonding Experience

newdesign.jpgI never planned to upgrade today. I didn’t know it yet but until I searched the archives for my last theme update , what did I discover? Lo and Behold! It is exactly a year ago. How come it took me that long? I usually change my theme every 6 months. I must have loved the old theme so much.

Today, I present a spanking brand new theme which illustrates my family’s bonding experience,Eating and our lives as food bloggers. One of my biggest peeve is junk food. I don’t know why my husband often adds them in his grocery list when I tell him that junk food is full of salt. He loves to indulge the children with Pringles or chocolate candies every weekend. I used to have a Friday Junk Food night when the kids were much younger. It’s the night when they can watch TV shows and munch on junk food since the rest of the week, they are not allowed to watch TV and eat junk food. Now that they are older, the husband has been very lax with our rules. I think that he buys the junk food because he wants to feel like a child.

Oh well, he enjoys watching the kids eat. Eating together as a family is a wonderful bonding experience, don’t you think?

I will just have to monitor the junk food stock more often.

Thanks once again to Juan Karlo Licudine of pinoyblogero.com for the lovely header.

    I like this theme a lot! I was here yesterday when it shifted from old to new – was pleasantly surprised 🙂

    My family bonds mostly through eating too. Last Friday it was pizza night. My hub tells me I taught him to eat chips, hehe. On weekends we have chips with TV. But it’s been weeks since, because hub is trying to – ahem – lose weight.

    We eat chips too but not much, only when we have picnics or swimming. We do at times in the house but this is limited, so with the candies and chips.

    Better the children have these at home than sneak just to have them taste what its like 🙂
