It is again my joy to be guest posting at The Beauty Within 31 this month! For August, I have written about making meals feel special. That may sound unimportant to you and I did not think it was a big deal either…until I tried it! Whether you are single and eating another microwave creation for dinner or an exhausted mommy who is serving up spaghettios for the third time this week, this post is for you!
Cultivating Meaningful & Eventful Meals Every Time
I greet August with mixed emotions every year. On one hand, it is the very middle of summer, making it the best part. Kind of like the middle of a grilled cheese sandwich! On the other hand, though, August reminds me that summer is nearing an end. School will be starting back soon, stores are already displaying fall fashion and I keep seeing those “Only ____ more weeks until Christmas” in my social media newsfeed.
While this month may bring it’s share of goods and bads, I have read that the summer months are a great time to save a little time by eating supper at home rather than at restaurants or doing take out. That sounded like a good idea to me, but my work schedule is so crazy that I usually end up at a restaurant every night of the week. Eating at home is just not an option for me unless I want to start cooking something at 6:45 and still be in the kitchen cleaning up at nearly 8:00 PM. No way! Do not sign me up for that!
What if you did want to eat at home more in these last few weeks of summer, though? How could an at hoe meal be enjoyable for a family, yet easy on mom? (Because it’s her summer too!) How could a single woman make her at home meal feel special rather than just slapping a sandwich on a paper plate?
