If you remember, at the beginning of November Ty and I committed to the #BillionDinners challenge. Over the course of two weeks, we tracked and ate 10 meals together. (Read more about the challenge in this post.) Ty and I already make eating together a priority, but the DinnerCall app helped remind us of the importance of doing this even when life gets chaotic! One of my favorite parts of the DinnerCall app was the questions that it asked as conversation starters.
Question 1 “If you could have free, unlimited service for five years from a cook, chauffeur, housekeeper, masseuse, or personal assistant, which would you choose?”
- Ty: Cook, but what I’d really like is a Personal Trainer.
- Bre: Cook. Even though I like cooking, it’d make healthy eating even easier if someone else was making the food. Cooking could just be my hobby!
Question 2 “If you could only eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?”
- Ty: Steak burrito, hot sauce, and potato chips.
- Bre: Vanilla bean ice cream, ketchup, and chicken strips.
Question 3 “What kind of old person do you want to be?”
- Ty: A wise old person. I never want to stop learning.
- Bre: A young old person. I want to be free spirited and youthful.
Overall, we are so glad we took this challenge and plan to continue to make eating together a priority. Dinner conversations tend to be some of the best conversations!
