Simply Awesome Dinner

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!
