Dinner time is sacred. The TV is placed so no one can see it while we’re eating. We don’t have a TV in the dining room [Carl Perreault: Or in the kitchen.]. We like to talk to each other. In the morning or at lunch, we may allow it; or in the kitchen when everyone is doing their own thing. But no matter what, dinner time is…It’s together and we talk. On Friday night, we’ll have a little…like, pizza or a lighter supper, even macaroni and cheese. Something that isn’t as heavy that we can eat together in the living room while watching a movie. It’s…we’ve been doing that for a while.

The Perreault family doesn’t have dinner in front of the TV. Instead, members sit at the table and eat together…except maybe on Friday nights as a treat!
