Family home evening refreshments

Some months ago i was instructed, from over the pulpit in sacrament meeting, that family home evening doesn’t count as family home evening unless refreshments (specifically, sweets) are served. I’m glad to know that my church leaders are on the lookout for ways to promote unhealthy associations between wholesome family activities and the holy trinity of fat/​sugar/​jello—that’s the sort of thing that helps me sleep better at night.

Doesn't count? Guess we've had FHE about exactly twice since we've been married. Cameron's teacher in Springfield - you might remember her actually - used to be Bev Gourley (she remarried after divorcing Doug) - told the kids in her class that FHE required refreshment. So Cameron wanted refreshments. So we started have refreshments. That lasted two weeks. Oh, well.
