Yes sadly, family traditions can, and do get broken, as the years move along..
It could be through marriage, where the other person wasn't brought up to say grace...
As I mentioned we were made to say it through our school years..." For what we are about to receive may the Lord make us truly grateful - thankful.." all it took was a couple of seconds of our time, before we tucked into our food..

Greetings Larry I always try to eat at the dinner table, not into using a tray on my lap.

Greetings Carol I have not long looked at the Raclette dish. I think I will try it sometime, but it will be only me who eats it, as hubby likes plain cooking.

Greetings Jackie A splendid post about saying grace. Many of the standards we practiced in years gone by have sadly disappeared from every day life. I have come to the conclusion that saying grace is up to the each individual within the family group.

Thinking of Janet and her trip.
Rebot - Ellie: Thank you for describing the meat and size. Right now, I am planning a dinner for 7 and using Raclette special cheese and an electric item which melts the cheese to pour over vegetables. It is a Swiss meal - no, I am not Swiss. Fun to do and guests seem to like it - it is very relaxing.
Jackie: Praying at meals yes we do give thanks. I remember the "sweet" one - thanks for your input.
Larry: I like your new job. Fantastic that your friends will gift you with a meal. It is so helpful. Pollen is so bad in Arizona right now. I have short darts of pain even though taking an allergy pill.
We did see the "new moon" last night finally after the dark clouds drifted away. I just made myself sit here and sent a common letter to three friends in Colorado. We have to wait an extra month here in Arizona because a cousin from Seattle wants to drive here for a visit. It is alright, but I will miss seeing our children gather at home in April.

Hi Everyone. We are to have a partially or mostly cloudy day today with it getting up to 65 degrees. I think we may have had a brief shower this morning that helped clear the air of some of the heaven pollens in this area. I didn't get to sleep until about 6 am this morning but was able to get about 3 hours sleep. So I am draggy today and will practice my new profession watching of alot of the NCAA Basketball Tournament games that start at noon and will be on all day and evening. It is starting today with 64 teams and they are televising the games on multiple channels. Half of the teams will play today and Saturday if they win and the other half on Friday and Sunday. Scott and the girls were out for dinner last night. We had Scott pick up food from KFC plus Pat fixed a big dish of baked beans. After dinner the four of them played a couple of games of Farkle. Pat and Scott are planning a trip to Costco this afternoon as Pat is out of coffee and that is a big motivator for her. I don't think she has too many items on her list so it should be a relatively quick shopping trip. She doesn't have an order for Walmart this week. Of of the ladies from Sunday School brought over an Italian dinner with salad and dessert that we will enjoy tonight and Pat won't have to cook, which she appreciates. Different ladies have brought in several meals these last three months.
Jackie, that was a very nice postings about saying Grace. Pat and I eat a lot of our meals on trays and I must admit that we do not usually say Grace at these meals.

A small correction, at school we called it " saying grace "

Keeping on our Christian theme, all this talk about foods and stews got me asking...How many of us still say a prayer at the table before we eat our food, has this gone out of fashion in today's society? and if so, is it done within our eating group, or singularly? Baring in mind not everyone sits at the table nowadays to even eat, some sit in an armchair with a tray, some eat on the go...
Here is one I was brought up to hear-say at the table as a child, we was taught this at school.
" Thank you for the world so sweet, Thank you for the food we eat, Thank you for the birds that sing, Thank you God for everything, Amen.."
Another one I can add, which maybe more appropriate now to us, is..
" We thank you, Lord, for all you give; The food we eat, The lives we live. And to our loved ones far away, Please send your blessings, Lord, we pray. And help us all to live our days, with thankful Hearts and loving ways. Amen.."
I have to hold my hand that I have slacked on this, unless it has been with a church group meal..

Greetings Carol The best way I can describe a scrag end of mutton, is it is one of the cheaper cuts of lamb from the neck. Have a look on Google and it will show what a scrag end of mutton looks like.

Love the title of "Professional Rester". It makes me want to nod off.
Ellie: Hello and thank you for your special soup recipe. I printed the recipe and will find some way to try it some day. I will just guess at what a scag amount can be. I do know that mutton was used very common in my gradparent's day - now they just see lamb chops at the shops.
Our granddaughter had a nice interview yesterday - they will let her know in a few days. I do not like the location as it is downtown big city and that is a marijuana and other drugs jungle. She graduates from the university in days and has opted to not rent a cap and gown - instead will take a trip with a few friends.
Don't forget to look for the full moon tonight.
