A Good Dinner
August 22, 2008
Like most moms, I try to prepare healthy, well-balanced meals for my family. However, today I had a kind of “low-energy” day. So for dinner, I served biscuits (they were from scratch if that counts for anything), bacon, and a simple fruit salad. No veggies, nothing gourmet. As Lucy (age 9) surveyed the table, she asked, “Is this all we’re having for dinner?” When I admitted it was, she let out a whoop. “Yes! All yummy food!”
I guess perspective counts for a lot.
Also, Ma from Little House on the Prairie fed her family similar dinners all the time, if my memory serves me correctly, although I think they called bacon “salt pork.” Isn’t it the same thing? Anyway, if it sufficed for the Little House family, it’s good enough for us!
