My family has a tradition of always eating Sunday dinner at our parents’ house. This is wonderful for all of us because we all get to come together as a family and enjoy a feast. My mother makes the most amazing meals and my father keeps excellent care of the HVAC system. He has invested in radiant heated floors and they also have a smart thermostat. This makes it especially easy to adjust the climate control settings when we are relaxing and enjoying dinner. Nobody actually has to get up and go to the thermostat to make any needed adjustments. I also appreciate the fact that they have a lovely fireplace that my father always has roaring in the winter months. Honestly, the winter months are my favorite time eating at their place. We all get to enjoy the comforting heat from the radiant heated floors, and the fireplace adds the perfect ambience to the household. It’s just so comforting and relaxing. Oftentimes in the winter, my mother will also make us hot cocoa which is fabulous. She has this secret recipe of hers that she never shares with anybody, but the hot cocoa is to die for! I hope that eventually she passes down that recipe to us before she actually dies. That would be such a shame to lose that wonderful recipe for the hot cocoa, it’s just so good! I really love the fact that we always have this family tradition. I hope to continue a tradition like this with my children one day. Hopefully I will be able to make the same hot cocoa that my mother always made for us.
