Whatever it takes...

to keep them HAPPY!!

I don't know what it's like at your house on the 14th of each month, but at our house IT'S TIME TO GO GROCERY SHOPPING!!!
By the 14th of each month we have random items in our cabinets and even more random items in the refrigerator and freezer. Sometimes we can pull a meal out of the strange assortment, but who am I kidding?!?! I'm not an amazing a good cook so if I have to think too much it's probably NOT going to happen! :)

Anyway, so yesterday was the 14th. The girls and I had errands to run and we were still out as it grew closer to 4:30. I started thinking about what I could possibly pull together for dinner... Brandon gets home a little after 5:00 AND we have to be at the church at about 6:15. By the time we got home it would be almost 5:00.... it just wasn't going to happen!

I called Brandon (thank the person who invented the cell phone!). I explained our current time/location situation and we decided to meet at Zaxby's for dinner.

The girls and I got there a few minutes before Brandon so I ordered for us and got a table. By the way, if you haven't tried the Kickin' Chicken Sandwich Meal... I recommend it. I'm not a huge fan of spicy food so I get it with the wimpy sauce (as opposed to the crazy hot stuff) and the ranch on the side. :)

Once we finished eating we had a little time to kill so we just sat. Sometimes it is nice to JUST SIT! I don't feel like I get to do that very often! :)

The girls were getting a little restless so we gave them a sandwich to-go box to play with. No, we did not waste a perfectly good to-go box. It was what Chandler's cookie came in. I made sure it wasn't the super greasy one that her grilled cheese and fries came in!

Your girls have the prettiest blue eyes--and you are so good to have your camera with you at a restaurant! Do you carry it always? I can't tell you how many times we've had snap-worthy moments, and I was kicking myself for being camera-less.

If you have a night where you HAVE to cook and you don't think you have a meal on hand, try This website has you list what ingredients you have on hand, and then shows you recipes that call for those ingredients. It's a real help, especially when you have to wait for payday!

how cute! i love the two of them together. it's so sweet.

i miss zaxby's too. have you ever had the zaxby's club sandwich? I get it every time. it's very good to me.

this reminds me of my dinner last night sort of. i had spaghetti with bratwurst...haha. it was ok, but a little odd! i just had no beef so i threw in bratwurst. it's the german way!
