Well last week I got to single parent the foursome for 5 days while hubby was in Colorado for a meeting with his new job.
Now I will confess that when Mark is out of town I kind of like that I get a break from real cooking. The kids and I feast on easy stuff – corn dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, fried egg sandwiches…whatever I can throw together at the last minute.
Well there is no such luck with the new gang because all of these “easy” staples get the finger-wagging “I don’t like”.
So dinner actually took brain power this week. Thankfully they like pizza. We also did breakfast for dinner one night. I actually grilled chicken one night and we tried out sweet potatoes which they told us they liked in Ethiopia. I learned that they like them just plain – no butter and brown sugar on them 🙂 So yeah for one more “yes” food.
Overall the week went well. I was pretty tired and found myself turning in by 10 most nights (which is a rarity for me, esp when Mark is out of town).
We got some family pics done on Saturday by our friend Kim. She gave me a sneak preview of one and I can’t wait to see the rest. You’re going to have to wait until I get them all though to see. It was an adventure, as picture taking always seems to be.
