I told you last week about my pledge to go #DarkForDinner with my family, and I promised to report back how it went. The movement challenges families to spend a Sunday night dinner without any screeens. No phones, no tablets, no TV. We moved our entire dinner outside to be completely free of electronic distractions. We had a blast! Since I was already planning on eating out on our patio (something we don’t do often enough in the summer), I decided to make dinner prep an outside experience too!
This was the first time we had done the pizzas over charcoal, and it took a bit longer than I was expecting. Instead of a screen-free hour, we had a good 2+ hours outside without any internet or TV. Other than the kids getting a bit hangry since dinner was late, it was a great night! How did your dark dinner go?
Let's be buds.
