With Troy gone a lot, my routine is to spend a lot of time cooking on the one weekend day that he IS home - if there is one! Troy hangs out with Jack while I'm running errands and cooking. I spend A LOT of that day in the kitchen. Perhaps too much time as I found out last week. I asked Jack if I could play with him, and he said "Poppy plays with me. YOU go cook me dinner".
Properly chastised by my toddler, I dedicated all day yesterday to ignoring the kitchen and just hanging with the kiddo. A side effect of this, is my menu. It's very very hands off for this week.
Cooking, slacking, or phoning it in, I wish you a wonderful week of eating and preparing food.
