Last night, Papa surprised me with a lovely dinner, including a deliciously grilled steak, steamed asparagus, roasted purple potatoes, baked tomato, stuffed peppers with crusty French bread. What a nice surprise after a long day of work. Thanks Papa!
My daughter’s lunch benefitted from last night’s leftovers – mainly the purple potatoes and asparagus. We’re still on a blackberry kick, so a couple of those, baked chicken drumette and wingette, and the last of the roasted chioggi beets cut into stars.
It was wonderful to watch the girls enjoy a family dinner – normally, we are so pressed with time, I’m simply racing against bedtime to get everyone fed, washed, and chores and lessons completed before they start rubbing their sleepy eyes.
“Mama, I picked the potatoes!” my older daughter proudly announced as she took her drinking glass to the sink.
“Mama, I like steak!” the little one added, bobbing her head.
If only dinner time was always like this!
