I cooked food and shopped for food all. day. long. And, it was tiring. But, it was also so fun.
Summer helped me bake cupcakes for a birthday celebration tomorrow.
Then, we made Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats for snacks and lunch treats.
And, we wrapped up the cooking session by making lunch for tomorrow while simultaneously making dinner for tonight.
Just as I was feeling a bit guilty for having an all day cooking and shopping session, Summer melted my heart. She went and got her apron and asked me to pull her hair back in a ponytail. Then, she posed and said, “I look like a momma now. I am ready to cook!”
I experimented with something new to pack in the boys’ lunches. I wanted it to be something that was healthy, easy, and also could withstand the lunch box test – still good at room temperature. The creation was a hit. So much so that Ethan opted to eat it for dinner tonight instead of the stir-fry.
