A Room With A {Corner} View & Typical Family Dinner


Corner View was created by Jane at Spain Daily and is now hosted by Francesca.  It is bloggers from all over the world, posting photos of a specific weekly theme.  To join, just post to your own blog and then link up over at Francesca's Corner View for the week.  Then, visit the other Corner Views ... that's my favorite part !  Seeing the interpretations of the themes, visiting different cultures, learning something new !

Last week I was really excited about the theme "Typical Family Dinner" but I ended up having to work on my {usually } day off.  I was bummed that I missed out.  This week, when I saw the theme was "A Room With A View", I was excited again, because I can tie the two themes together ! 

Had I not wanted to tie them together I probably would have posted photos out my front window ... to our blooming garden and birds feeding and bathing in our peaceful little scene.  But instead, I bring you ... the view from our kitchen !

In this first photo you can see the view from a different angle ... That's the kitchen bench you can see behind the dining room table.  But I love that from the kitchen, I can see everyone who may be here, waiting to eat.  When I'm cooking, people are sitting at the table ... kids doing homework or playing games, or sitting on the lounge ... reading or talking to me.  Actually, this view has changed since I took that photo.  The piano now sits in that room as well.  The children practice six days a week so I often cook to live piano music !  Or sometimes guitar, if my husband is playing ....


Here is the view looking out from the kitchen itself ...

As for the Typical Family Dinner ... well, we are anything but typical. So, I guess for us, typical would be 'trying something new'. Yes, we have a few favorites and of course, I do cook things more than once, but I love to try new things. When life is crazy busy, we tend to fall back on old favorites that are easy to cook but when life is more 'normal' we try new things all week long.

I started, at the beginning of 2012, posting at the end of the week "What We Ate" to my cooking blog. If you'd like to see those posts, you can check them out here. I have so loved posting them ! Here, in photo form, is a 'taste' of our typical family dinners.

You can find all of these recipes over at The Beans Blog ! Let me know if you want one in particular and I'll hook you up with a link !

I love that soup (?) dish served in a tea cup, and all the variety! Couldn't help but notice how tidy your dining room is - wow!

I like how you were able to tie both themes in together. If we lived nearby one another, I would hire you to add two more plates to your meals. Your meals look wonderful. xo

Your view of the dining and living room is great - I also like it when the family gathered around. And the Speisem - wow - so many different ones. I would have liked the sushi.

Listening to music when you're cooking - that must be what gives your meals this wow factor. They look great!
