It's been such a busy time here between school and play practice, that we've hardly had a chance to enjoy anything else. I keep reminding myself this is a season, and the busy-ness will pass. I want to enjoy each day, and not wish them away.
One thing that remains constant is our family dinners. Sitting down as a family each and every evening is essential. We can't always afford the time to linger over the meal, but the simple act of eating together cements relationships. And who says Wednesday night dinner can't be special?
I tried another recipe (Hot Spinach and Lentil Salad) from The Daily Bean tonight, and it was a winner. So flavorful, so unexpected. Hard boiled eggs on top of wilted spinach? Lentils cooked with mustard seed? Each bite was delicious, and I think I'll be making this one often. Sea scallops made the perfect accompaniment, though I could be happy with just the salad.
Four more performances of the play, and hopefully life will return to normal, whatever that is!
