Dinner of Champions
Whew, I am really feeling all the aches, pains, and exhaustion of being in my 3rd trimester today! It was a typical busy day of hustling to preschool, cleaning house, picking up Aiden & 1 of his classmates, struggling with the boys for almost 2 hours before they finally succumbed to naps in the same room. Then I spent over an hour preparing for a family dinner/errand outing (including, but not limited to: boys' snacks and drinks in the car & jackets set out), only to find out from Andy on his way home that he was coming home to bed sick. Now what? It's raining, I'm exhausted, and staring at the last chicken breast and my marinade box was doing nothing for me. So I put on my thinking cap, surfed the net, and came up with an amazing dinner, inciting "yays!" from the 2 and 4 year old crowd: homemade pancakes, bacon and mandarin orange smoothies!
