Yesterday was a chilly, rainy day. It rained on and off all day, so the day was gray and sleepy. Soccer practice was cancelled. My son, who just had his wisdom teeth out on Monday, was not going to tennis practice, rain or no rain.
So, we made dinner together.
I made the chicken (I had put it in the crock pot that morning, because I thought there would be soccer and the associated carpool driving). My daughter made the mashed potatoes. My son made the salad.
A little sparkling cider and we’ve got ourselves a party on a weeknight!
It was so fun – not just having a quiet dinner together, but that we made it together, too. That put it over the top.
For an easy dinner idea on a weeknight, try a breadboard dinner – one of my family’s favorite dinners!
