A view from my side.
Every couple of days, the boys and I sit down to talk about the schedule for the next few days. With 2 soccer schedules and Kid#1’s work schedule, we need to know who is going to be where, when, and in what car. This week Kid#1 works 4 nights. Kid#3 and I have both have a match on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, at different start times and at different locations. The possibility exists either/both of us will be playing on Saturday as well. Add to that we are a car short due the Honda blowing its engine (see Bad Car-Ma and Marinated Pork Chops), and you get the picture. A week from hell from a family meal standpoint.
We realized that tonight would be the only chance to have everyone at home for a meal at the same “reasonable” time to eat. We even had Kid#4 tonight, since Monday is a “daddy dinner” night for her. We also realized that we had about a 60 minute window to cook and eat (before Kid#4 had to be back at Ex#3’s) and would be worn out from the first day back after Spring Break. Nights like this demand Breakfast for Supper.
It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s tasty. It’s fun. Scrambled eggs. Patty sausage. Buttered toast. Fresh fruit. A tall glass of milk or water or juice, your choice. Breakfast for Supper is one we can all smile about. No pics tonight since you all probably have your own memories of what this meal looks like.
