This Week’s Family Meal Plan
Last week, our family made a quick trip to Phoenix and back, attended a wedding and all the festivities, put Daddy on a plane to China, played two soccer games and one volleyball game, performed in a piano recital, had a mother/daughter date, manicured the lawns, scrubbed three bathrooms, made/cleaned up 21 meals and did 11 loads of laundry. Mother’s day yesterday was the perfect way to recover from a busy, fun, yet exhausting week. Since we celebrated without our dad’s help, I wasn’t expecting anything grand, so you can imagine how my heart melted when I was wakened by the sound of my oldest daughter cutting out paper hearts for me at 5 AM. I went back to bed for three hours and was greeted with a plate of fried eggs cooked by my 9 year old son (his first time cooking them ever). My 6 and 4 year old made construction paper cards and helped set the table. They were all so proud of themselves.
Now we get back to a regular routine as much as we can without Dad this week. We will be keeping thing pretty simple in the kitchen. Here’s what’s cookin’:
