Late Night Dinners and Christmas Decor

Lately, things have been incredibly busy. My kids seem to have something going on every night, and I have totally failed in planning ahead on dinner making!

I have had a hard time lately keeping up with laundry, cleaning, and everything else, including sleep. So my dinner planning has gone out the door. I believe the girls are tired of my saying “You can eat whatever you can find and put together yourself!”

I am hoping though things will slow down and get back to normal. The Christmas decorations are up, somewhat. I say somewhat because I feel like I am lacking in decor this year. I don’t know if I’m tired of the Christmas decor I have or what, but I am feeling the need to visit my favorite antique store and see what they might have to spruce up the place a bit. I love antiques and I love visiting my favorite antique store!!! So I am thinking of popping in there this week and seeing what I can find!

So this is our tree. The girls decorate it every year. I have learned to stay out of it and let them have the control. This took me a long time to do! I cried one year because Grace wanted to decorate the tree how she wanted it and I didn’t like it. Since then I have learned to let go and let them have fun. I will have many years once they leave to carry out their own lives to decorate my tree again how I want it.

So as I was saying, dinners have been very simple and uneventful around here since Thanksgiving! We have been eating on leftovers and basically, what ever we can find the refrigerator.

My go to dinner has been gluten-free spaghetti noodles with Rao’s sauce and then topped with Asiago cheese and a glass of wine!

Nothing fancy, but hey, it works! This is actually one of my favorite quick and easy go to dinners. It’s almost like a comfort food for us around here. Really what can get better than just a little spaghetti and a glass of wine at the end of the day! NOTHING!!! Well maybe cheesecake along with the glass of wine too!
