Some nights I just don’t feel like cooking a huge meal so on this night we simply had freshly cut cucumber, orange bell pepper, an heirloom tomato, steamed broccoli, celery with peanut butter and watermelon. At first I thought ” wow, I am slipping here not making a nice meal after everyone has had such a long day”, but you know what my family’s comments were? ” mmmmmm, I love it when we have meals like this” and ” wow I am stuffed, that was delicious!”
Sometimes I forget that dinner doesn’t have to be some big banquet spread that has taken me a lot of time to prepare. The important thing is that we are spending time together eating a healthy meal. This simple meal happened to make all of us happy!
Im going through the same thing right now! We are getting ready to rent our house and move and I just dont have time to cook every night for a family of 8. They have been eating a lot of apples and peanut butter. Lol
Wow, a family of eight. That must be a challenge. My heart goes out to you. Apples and peanut butter are awesome!Keep up the good workd!
