I remember when I lived by myself, and my now husband I were dating, but only got to have meals (together) on the weekend for the most part. Most nights, I'd just eat a bowl of cereal for dinner because it was way too much work to make a meal that only I was going to eat. Every now and then I was inspired to cook, but I'm almost positive I survived on single frozen meals and cereal. I honestly don't remember very well....but, I do remember thinking, it'll be great when I have a family and I cook dinner every night--it'll be a varied and healthy menu!
Fast forward 7 years....and most nights I'm thinking, can't I just feed everyone cereal tonight? Coming up with an actual meal that everybody will eat is becoming harder everyday! But alas....it still gets done. Even if it is last minute....
