So we are heading into that time of the year
when activities pile up
time available shrinks
and the house rather than spring cleaning becomes
spring piles(piles of clothes that need to be washed, and dishes that need to be cleaned)
to make life easier…once a week(when we are really busy)
we use paper plates.
argh…I said it….paper plates…the environmentalist in me is shrieking in horror
the mom in me
sighing a deep sigh of relief!
no matter how hard I plan
with two growing boys
leftovers are not what they used to be
there aren’t as many
don’t last as long as they used to .
So end up cooking more, and doing more dishes…
how else do I stay sane?
Tyson Chicken nuggets.(or patties, or strips)
one meal a week during busy weeks its fast they can pop it in the microwave themselves!
and….its safe for them!(well…relatively) it contains nothing they are Allergic to YAY!
fresh veggies washed and cut in massive amounts at the beginning of the week usually last Sunday through Thursday
pasta made in a big batch maybe gets us 3 days tops so if you don’t put anything on it
one kid that hates sauce can eat it plain
the other can top with pizza/spaghetti sauce and with the nuggets have a meal!
its not always fancy
its not always pretty
but we try to always eat one meal a day together(when possible)
and if paper plates and chicken nuggets calm the time constraints….so be it!
