I wrote this post quite a few days early, but I went back and added the photo of Peter and me on Sunday. We’ve had a lot going on this week. Most of it involved getting ready for my son’s graduation ceremony and party on Saturday.
It’s hard to believe how fast a kid can go from being a 9 year old, playing on his first soccer team to an 18 year old and graduating from high school!
Both of my sons were also in a high school musical performance of West Side Story on Thursday and Friday. All their grandparents came in to see the play Friday night and then graduation Saturday.
Consequently, dinner has been a simple affair around here this week. One night, it was just my youngest and I for dinner. I opened a can of soup and served it over rice with a pretzel roll on the side. Just enough for the two of us!
Another night, I made a quick meal of ravioli before we all rushed out in different directions for dress rehearsals and soccer practices.
I’m looking forward to working with a planned menu again next week! The good thing is, since I shop regularly, the pantry is stocked. That means there are things I can use to quickly pull dinner together. We can still eat at home, even very simply. It’s nice to avoid running through the drive through when the schedule gets crazy. Especially, if the schedule is crazy multiple nights in a row!
