I love dinnertime. Sitting down to eat is my favourite time of day, but getting to that point can be stressful. I’m tired and hungry, the girls are tired and hungry. It seems to be the time of day they seem to need my attention the most. I feel torn between being there for them and trying to make them something heathy and tasty for dinner. That usually makes me grumpy.
To try and make this time of day more fun I decided to try an experiment. I wanted to take photos of dinnertime for a week. I was surprised by how something so small changed things. It made everyone feel like dinnertime was that much more special. It forced me to slow down and not be so frazzled. It made it more fun.
I managed to photograph Sunday through Friday, then Paul made dinner on Saturday and I got so excited that I forgot about the whole thing (it was that good). All flowers were picked and arranged by Sosi.
Sunday: Homemade pizza
Monday: Roast chicken, spinach, mashed potatoes with chives, tiny pastas with butter.
Tuesday: Annie’s Mac and Cheese, salad, BBQed sausages.
Wednesday: BBQed hamburgers, corn on the cob, salad
