Nonetheless my family has to eat and so on Sunday evening I sat down again with our family's schedule & a list of what's in the pantry. Then I created this plan.
I call it Menu Monday.
My DH (darling husband) calls it brilliant
and (sometimes) the kids call it delicious!
I consider cooking for my Tribe more than a chore. I imagine it's my way of offering them the nourishment they need to thrive as well as it being an opportunity to gather them around the table -and in a season where we are bogged down with work, school and games - bringing everyone around a meal is time that I personally treasure.
May you too, find your own way to love and care for your family. Whether it's in the kitchen, the car or over bedtime stories and snuggles, I hope you are carving out memorable moments for your family.
