Dinner Done!

on August 13, 2013

I’m very happy to report that Day 1 of Operation:  Real Dinner was a success.  Lately, out of laziness, I have been alternating between a long pasta (linguine or spaghetti) and a short pasta (penne or macaroni) for dinner, with maybe rice or mashed potatoes here and there.  Sometimes a meat.  Maybe a vegetable.  But last night, since I PLANNED, we had a protein, a starch, and salad!  I did end up taking ALL FOUR KIDS to the grocery store after all.  I ran out of spray partway through cleaning the bedroom carpet and I needed to get it over with so the carpet could dry before bedtime.  While I was picking up another can of spray, I also bought bagged salad because, it was on the schedule, and the one in the fridge had gone bad.  (If I hadn’t gone to the store, I would have just served a different vegetable.)  Little Man (age 3) had a small tantrum when I wouldn’t let him return the basket to the front of the store by himself, to which the young cashier graciously responded, “That’s how I feel when I’m here, too.”  But we survived.

The calendar I used came from the Microsoft Office website.  You can also create printable calendars at timeanddate.com.  Fridays are blank because we usually have pizza.

It bears repeating:

~~A wife of noble character, who can find … She provides food for her family.  (Proverbs 31:10a, 15b, NIV)~~

Yay!
