It was then onto our monthly Sam's pilgrimage. It truly is amazing how much faster you can go through a store w/ no kids along. Really. It had to have been a record for us. And, best of all, we only got one cart. ONE cart at Sam's. Usually, we have 3 carts. Since we are trying to incorporate more fresh fruits and veggies, we don't have a whole lot to purchase there anymore. that's a good thing. Got home & unloaded. Kids started arriving home. Fed them all homemade potato soup that had been simmering all day. It was a race against time. Had to be at basketball game by 3:45. Yikes! Yet, we did it. And, off to the game...which was running late. But before we could go, we did have to get ready. Some pics from that process:
Came home after 9pm and got everyone ready for bed. Rephrase that, let everyone go to bed with no bath or chores done b/c we were too lazy to do so. Sound better as a parent?
Woke up today w/ tons to do. Since this is already so long & I need to go eat dinner( big thank you Warren!), I'll finish up about our Sunday tomorrow. Warren loves to make meals on the grill. Tonight it is shrimp stir fry. He grills the shrimp and veggies on the grill and we put it all on top of rice. Whole family loves it. He makes up a lot of his own seasonings and recipes & hits it dead on. Only one recipe that none of us liked. He is dreaming of a Chinese cookbook for some recipes. Hoping I can find one for him one of these days. He really is a great cook. Kids like his scrambled eggs better than mine. Tarragon is key w/ that one. I do the baking & can bake. Warren is more of the chef. Though I do all cooking during the week, he takes over on the weekends and enjoys it. I told him we should can the marinara sauce he came up with and sell it. It is all organic & absolutely fantastic! I told him we could sell it. He didn't believe me when I told him for how much. Showed him the organic sauces at the grocery store. wow. $8 to $10 a jar. I think he was surprised. Still, can't get him to do that. I do think he is onto something and just doesn't realize it.
Okay, choppy post. Will post more later. Kids are not going to bed like thy're supposed to tonight. URGHH. Write more and share more pics of basketball a bit later.
