The Family Table

Educating Families About the Benefits of Family Meals

Tip of the Week: Beef Kabobs with Grilled Asian Slaw

With all the warm weather we’ve been having, my crockpot sits lonely on the counter while the grills in our neighborhood are being dug out and put to work! Digging around in my recipe box for some lighter meals, I found a quick meal idea I’d clipped out from when the kids were younger and thought with all this gorgeous weather you too might enjoy the spring menus ideas for some family fun. Many families hit the road this time of year for that annual trek called Spring Break.

Mine is no exception. One of the biggest treats about the trip – the food! We are headed to the deep south – where deep fried and sweet ice tea are part of the culture. The downside will be balancing all of the treats with a healthy blend. And, making sure we all eat breakfast before running out the door for the next fun excursion!

If you’re staying at home, remember the great places we have locally and plan to make a day of it at Science Central, the Allen County History Museum, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the amazing downtown Public Library, or the African African-American History Museum. For other ideas, try Visit Fort Wayne. I hope your week is enjoyable, and you are able to connect with your family in a meaningful way.
