Today I am thankful for… grilled cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
After a long weekend away and a Monday morning routine that includes a workout and playground play date lasting until lunch time, grocery shopping was out of the question for the first half of the day. It’s more important to me to get peanut back into his weekly routine than the house stocked with food before 10am.
Ah, but there was a loaf of bread in the house, so all is right with the world. A loaf of bread plus a few slices of cheese and a jar of peanut butter and jelly meant lunch for peanut and me. And means a postponed trip to the grocery store until after mommy’s shower and peanut’s nap.
Sure, a nice chicken salad would have been more satisfying and balanced, but the quiet coming from down the hall meaning that peanut is sound asleep is oh so worth it. We’ll get the real food later.
