Nick left Monday for a week-long trip to Kino Bay, Mexico. He is helping a missionary network with other churches across the line. He’s suffering, I’m sure, by the ocean with his brother and a few other sweet people, eating great food and enjoying quiet moments.
Here’s the point. Ever since he’s been gone I realized that I cook for Nick. I cook for everyone really, but I aim to please him. I guess I’m not the type who makes meals because I know the kids will love it. I’ve faced the fact that I try to impress him. This is why I’ve had zero motivation to make nice meals this week.
The kids won’t appreciate if I make a beautiful roast or stir fry or any gourmet dish– so I’m not bothering. It’s all taquitos, popcorn, nachos and other nonsense around here until his return.
What kinds of food to you make when the man is gone? I could use some ideas :)
