People are forever asking how I manage everything with such a busy schedule. I love to cook, but I don’t always have time to do so in the manner I would like. This weekly journal beginning the week of 1 September 2018 is a way to keep it real and show that while my intentions are good, sometimes life and all of its activities get in the way of serving a delicious, home-cooked meal and that it is perfectly okay.

  • ********************

  • Saturday: It was a quiet, lazy day in the house. Football and Back to Hogwarts Day kept me on the couch, while Holly spent the day in her room. Jim flitted between helping a friend with some construction and relaxing at home with me. Somehow, dinner became an afterthought, so we all ended up cleaning out the fridge a bit more with grilled cheese sandwiches and leftovers.
  • Sunday: My father stopped by for a short visit around the time we were all considering a late lunch. So we ended up going to a local pub and enjoyed some really good live music and delicious food while sitting outside in a lovely breeze. Say what you will about Wisconsin and beer, but most pubs around here have excellent food in addition to great beer.
  • Monday: The last unofficial day of summer calls for a summer cookout. Burgers, corn on the cob, fruit salad, chips, dips, brownies. We had it all, and it was all delicious.
  • Tuesday: I was planning on making a dinner for Jim and me since we don’t see Holly until after her final dance class that ends at 9 PM, but he was more interested in the leftovers from yesterday. I was really looking forward to what I was going to make, but I can appreciate not having to cook. Plus, the leftovers were just as yummy.
  • Wednesday: Since this is the first week of the new school year schedule, I wanted to make dinners as easy as possible. Tonight’s dinner of Caesar salad with pasta and chicken certainly was easy. Jim went back for thirds so he must have also decided it was delicious. Holly was not a fan, as she does not believe pasta should ever be served cold.
  • Thursday: I was hoping to make tacos for dinner because Taco Thursday should be as much of a thing as Taco Tuesday, except events were not conducive to me cooking tonight. Between a teenager who could not tell me what time to pick her up from poms practice because they were doing something for the senior football players to a husband who got home later than usual, I had no idea whether I could start cooking let alone what time everyone would be able to eat. So I had to settle for the unsatisfactory leftovers in the fridge.
  • Friday: Game time was not until 7 PM, but tonight is Parents’ Night for the Poms squad. This means Jim and I had to be at the high school at 6:15 PM. By the time Jim came home with the dogs and we got them fed and watered, it was time to leave. We ended up picking up something to eat while out. Not ideal but such is the life of the parents of an active teenager on Friday nights in the fall.
