Savoring family

Webster’s definition numbers 9 and 10 under the word savor:

‘to perceive by taste or smell, especially with relish

‘to give oneself to the enjoyment of:  to savor the best in life’

Giving oneself to the enjoyment of family around the table  – a double entendre of sorts:  to savor family and food.
