 "Sitting down to a daily family meal has long been a tradition for billions of people. But in every corner of the world this age-old custom is rapidly changing."

What the World Eats

 Book Beginnings on Friday is a book meme sponsored by Katy at A Few More Pages

Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog. Include the title and author so we know what you're reading. Let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line and if you did or did not like that sentence. Link up each week at Katy's place.

Here's mine: 

"Imagine for a moment that it is early Saturday morning in the United States. You have just awakened and it's time for breakfast."

The Friday 56 is a book meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. Easy to participate in. Just grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56. Find a sentence that grabs you and post it.

Here's Mine:

"The Ayme family in their kitchen house in Tingo, Ecuador, a village in the central Andes, with one week's worth of food. Cooking method: wood fire. Food preservation: natural drying."
I'm thinking you might want to check this one out from your local library. The photos are gorgeous and the information is so valuable. At this time of year, I find myself being content with what I have and so very thankful that I have an abundant garden harvest to share with family and friends. 

I really like this book! It's about 25 families, 21 countries and 525 meals! Hope you'll share with me what you're reading!

Today's Question is something new, an activity. We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read! Too shy? Boo! Just post a fun pic you want to share. Beck Valley Books

Answer: Reading with my grandchildren! An outdoor activity of any kind with my grandchildren. Sitting afterwards is always a nice change of pace, followed by a snack and then a little nap! lol
