I don’t know how families with both parents working full time outside of the home get anything done, ever. Seriously folks, I don’t know how you even find time to brush your teeth, please send tips my way.
The sad truth of our new life is that I only cook dinner once every two weeks or so. Shane cooks sometimes, but more often it’s my mom or dad. Every Tuesday we get pizza from Upper Crust or Otto. Weird how things change.
For some reason, on October 19th, I managed to make dinner. I don’t recall the exact circumstances that made this possible, but it was great. We had Salmon Baked in Parchment (below), Roasted Broccoli and a made up salad with tomatoes, chick peas, lemon zest and creamy french feta. It was a treat for me to cook. Maybe I’ll do it again someday.
