Meal Time: {Family Life Project 52}

I almost didn’t join in this week.  The theme was the very bane of my existence.

Meal Time.

I love food with a serious passion. And if someone else prepares it all the better.

But the worst time of day for me–every single day–is 5:00 p.m.

I’m tired. Hungry. Irritable. And fixing dinner is the very last thing I want to do.  And I’m sort of a food snob, so if we do eat, there is a high standard it has to pass.

Our family changed to an all natural diet two years ago and its made an incredible difference in our life–BUT, it also means that everything we cook is from scratch.  Which means more work. It also means happier healthier bodies, but sometimes that’s hard to remember when you have a kid you’re trying to keep from climbing the stove, your husband is working late, and cooking means at least 30-60 minutes of juggling and hoping for a miracle.

My resolution for 2012 is to do better at menu planning and making this a happier time of day like it should be. Maybe this can help.

Photo Specs: Nikon D7000, Fisheye lens, ISO 3200, f7, 1/250 on timer. The camera is in the fridge.
