I am a full fledged taxi service now. It’s happened. I keep thinking I should look for my parents’ old station wagon in the garage. For years, I’ve joked about ‘have school will travel’ as we went here and there to lots of activities and did school along the way. But amazingly, we seem to be even busier! How did that happen? My kids are participating in so many activities. Sometimes I wonder if it’s too many. But then, I’m not sure what I’d cut out. They love them all. I want them to be able to pursue their interests. Luckily flag football only lasts two months. But then it’s quickly replaced by basketball. With my husband working such late hours, the taxi driving really falls to me. And everything seems to be during dinner or during dinner preparation hours. So this week, I started using the old crock pot again. Except everything I’ve fixed the kids frown at. I have to admit the Carribbean sweet potato and black bean stew was less than desirable. But I liked the Thai chicken. However, my kids wiped the sauce off their chicken legs with their napkins. Lovely. What to do? If you have any recipes for something to stick in the oven or crockpot for hours (4-5), something kids will love, then please share!
