This is what I told myself on a recent Family Table Night, as I realized my dinner plans had been derailed. They ate hot dogs for dinner, but it was still our family sitting together around the table. We shared ourselves and our conversation, and it was good.

I’m at the Plan to Eat blog today, sharing my most recent family table epiphany and a recipe for some quick and delightful cookie bars. Come over and join me? I’ll throw another hot dog into the pan for you.
