Dishes for days. A kitchen that I am pussy footing around in because it’s a wreck under construction. I am so excited to see the finished product. My amazing husband has been working on it every free moment he has.
I am completely over pandemic life. Yesterday we went for a walk and stumbled upon the fact that some restaurants are open with patio seating. My son and I had some delicious sushi because we could. A spontaneous dinner, it was just what my soul needed. It felt like it was Christmas.
This meal is reserved for days when I have spent all my energy on kid activities and don’t feel like dirtying dishes. This season has been hard on me. It’s not just the pandemic and the instability and sadness in our nation and the brokenness on every level. Simultaneously, I have been clawing my way through grief so now and then this mama needs a break or the easy road. This meal is it.
When we biked till late and had mud to wash off us and cooking seemed like a mission. This was dinner-in a flash. Opening some cans of tuna and cutting some veggies. Warm some wraps and voila! Did I tell ya, my husband loves this meal every-single-time. It’s as of I have served him and elaborate steak or something. He’s H-A-P-P-Y. I guess it just hits the spot of a well balanced meal. He’s happy, kids are satisfied and I feel like I am off the hook for dinner cause it’s so ridiculously easy. Win-win.
Wild caught tuna is the way to go for health and taste. We get the wild caught cans at Costco. It comes in a 6 pack and our family smacks 3 of those cans in one seating. I went off tuna for while after pregnancy but baby I am back. This is delicious and oh so simple. I love simple. These days, weeks and months have required simple.
Thought I would share the can that we use for reference and a snap of my cabinets being transformed. The contents of which I am dancing around and trying to maintain some order. Anyone else done a DIY kitchen project? How long were you not able to be in your kitchen for?
