Yesterday was a hard day. We had to say goodbye to a very dear friend who is one of my children’s closest friends. They’d been dreading this day for quite awhile, so I tried to come up with some fun things we could do to cheer them up. I decided we’d make a run to Sonic for drinks… not exactly eating from the pantry, but it definitely helped cheer some sad children up.
It was also one of those days that was full and busy and eating good meals altogether at the table didn’t really happen. It was more one of those eat-on-the-run days. It isn’t what I’d recommend, but it’s just what happens sometimes.
What we ate (yes, I know, kind of a pathetic list of unhealthy foods… just keeping it real here, though!):
Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal
Lunch: Chips, Muffins (from a friend), Salad
Snack: Ice Cream Cake, Drinks from Sonic
Dinner: Chips & Salsa (Jesse was gone, I was tired, and well, my plans for making pancakes & eggs just didn’t pan out!)
