I’m not all about complicated or elaborate meals, but every once in a while it can be fun to plan some fun family dinners. Fun doesn’t have to mean complicated; it can just mean changing things up so they’re not the norm. One of our favorite fun family dinners is to have an appetizer night. This could be as simple as just buying frozen appetizers from the store, but there are several recipes for appetizers that everyone loves. Choose a couple, set out some fruit, and enjoy dinner!
