Dinner alone tonight...that sure doesn't happen often! We generally make every effort to have one meal a day together as a family (usually dinner)...but there are occasionally exceptions to that rule.
The importance of spending a bit of time talking, sharing, laughing every day is unparallelled--it speaks bigger volumes than you could imagine (in a quiet, subtle voice). It says "I value you--I want to spend time with you", it speaks "I value food, eating and mealtime--I give it the importance and attention it deserves, and I teach my children to do the same", I smiles with joy and laughter and takes the edge off a sometimes busy, hectic day. What does it say to you?
This is one of the easiest salad side dishes around--I had this for dinner tonight beside my glorious grilled cheese sandwich :)
Quick Tomato Salad
(make as much or as little as you need--just adjust the quantities)
grape tomatoes cut in half
english cucumber cut into 1 inch cubes
balsamic salad dressing
fresh flat leaf parsley chopped roughly
feta cheese crumbled
Mix all together and serve--what could be easier than that?
