Seriously, I don't think I've had a decent meal in weeks. It's not pretty.
Our schedule runs a little like this:
3:00 Pick up kids and walk home
5:00 Get ready for practice
5:20 Leave for practice
8:00 Leave practice, snack in car
8:30 Arrive home, bath and stories
Honestly. Dinner at 4:30? I can't even force them to eat awful food and demand that they eat or go hungry, because they have to run for hours and hours. I can't send them to practice hungry. So I have to play short order cook and feed them all sorts of randomness that must serve as a meal for the next seven weeks. And me? I just eat scraps in between preparing the meal and getting everything ready for the Next Thing To Do.
But by then I will have forgotten how to cook. Or how to fight with them over how many bites they must eat before leaving the table.
And my husband? Yeah, he's on his own when he gets home from work...
Brilliant dinner ideas? My ears are open...
