It’s a Monday holiday, and the kids are just getting going on brunch. It’s not all that special, but on a day when they can sleep in we can share a big meal together right away in the morning. Scallions and kielbasa are chopped, eggs stuffed into the blender, and a small debate ensues about what kind of spices go down early in the morning. A sprinkle of coriander and basil later, and the stove is gurgling with another family meal in the making.
Heaps of quantity time – and food – are what holidays and families are all about.
