day and calendars start to fill again. What better time
than fall to sit the family down and reconnect?
Make it a special occasion. We’re not suggesting
taking out the heirloom china, but with a few
diversions such as our Jelly Belly centerpiece and
doggie treats, family night can become a dinner
filled with laughter, great food and togetherness.
And now that shoes have replaced flip-flops,
this might be the time to present a little refresher
course on manners. Then finish on a festive note
with ice cream treats.
Who knows, by the end of the meal, you just
might receive a very polite thank-you.
