I would not change the past year of having everyone in my family home. Last March our oldest daughter returned home and found remote work. The youngest daughter adjusted to remote college courses and a new full-time job. My husband has settled in to working from his basement office instead of flying around the country.
What would I change?
Figuring out dinner. Seven days a week.
When it was just youngest and me at home, some dinners could be egg sandwiches or pancakes. I'd cook some random chicken dish and we'd have that for two nights. When my husband was home on weekends, we'd eat out (before the pandemic).
I experimented with Pinterest recipes. I tried meal prep. I pulled out my copy of America's Test Kitchen Cooking School and attempted to learn how to cook.
We survived. We ate. It was fine, but this week I landed on a new miracle for dinner.
A local catering company offered a weekly meal kit. The food is prepared (ready to heat or eat) and packaged so nicely. I jumped on the opportunity to get one of these tasty meals every week.
Tonight was a Parisian picnic. Next week is Nashville buttermilk chicken.
As long as I have a meal to look forward to each week, I can deal with the other days.
I accept I may never be the diva of dinner preparation!
