That brings up another question:
How many of you plate your food in the kitchen and how many of you bring bowls/platters of food to table and eat "family style"?
I think we'll move to family style as the kids get older, but currently we plate everything in the kitchen.
We plate in the kitchen, but rarely eat at the table. But it's just me and my wife, so we go very casual. Once we have kids, we'll probably move to a table.
