Hey, all. Our current meal challenge? We need to leave the house by 5 pm, four days a week, and by 6 pm on the 5th. Leaving at 5 means we have to eat at 4:30. But no one's hungry at 4:30. And we don't get home until 8, at which time showers must be taken and beds gone to. But we soldier on... And no one has actually died of hunger just yet.
This week we're having guests. Which is good, because guests can put the meatloaf in or whatever as I'm shuttling kiddos to activities. At least they won't go hungry.
Here's what's on the menu this week.
