It was a lovely day, indeed at the end of which I really did not want to cook. So we had cheese and crackers, sugar snap peas and Trader Joe's Turkey Meat Balls (my new Go To protein when I don't want to cook) for dinner. It was a simple dinner but one that turned into a great little lesson in counting.
Lorelei likes sugar snap peas, but sometimes she husk is a little much for her, so we opened up the pods to pick out the peas.
This time around, though, was a little different than times before. She started to pluck each pea and count them as she placed them in my hand.
Dinner doesn't have to be a production every night. Keep some items in your freezer, larder and fridge that can be put together for an easy meal, and give yourself a break if you really don't feel like cooking. Spend that time with your kids, your friends, your family, or just on your own (if you can).
