I don't do THAT anymore.
Nowadays, putting a real meal together an on the table is a rare occurrence. Maybe once a week I'll roast a chicken or grill some pork chops.
John and I are often on very different eating schedules. He might eat lunch at the golf course, or I'll be in town with the girls. We sometimes go to a local joint for a hamburger. Some days, we're just not hungry at the same time...so we'll eat a bowl of cereal for supper. And we're both fine with that.
But when the kids are here, I always try to cook SOMETHING. Lilly sets the table and we eat together, using our manners, and TALKING. The meal can be very basic...but they both LOVE helping me cook.
|We put on our aprons -- even if we're just making instant jello (we did freeze it, so that's almost like cooking, right?)|
|On this day, we made jello pudding pops...|
|Sprinkles are a part of almost everything we make. Tube biscuit dough, for example...|
|We put the sprinkles into the cup, THEN the jello pudding before we put it in the freezer.|
