How’s this for a great idea? As single parents, our lives are hectic. Plain and simple. Soccer games, horseback riding, school , trips to the mall, PTA meetings, trips (of course), piano recitals, dance lessons, and that pesky little thing called work.
Sometimes I ask myself exactly how we actually do it all? It does surprise me and I remember when I first divcorced having a newfound respect for the stay at home mom. Not that I ever felt it was a cushy job–I just did not realize the extent! But in some sense we are all superheroes–we do it all and we do it for our kids.
So, why not share some of those superpowers? I know one of the most challenging things is getting a good meal on the table. While I woudl love to have an unlimited line of credit with McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza, it is not feasible. So let’s create a Single Parent Travel Cook Book!
I know you have some great recipes to share. Some old favorites from Granny. Maybe a Betty Crocker that your tweaked. Some kid’s favorites. And how about some great ones for when you are alone or cooking for a date.
Send your recipes to me in an e-mail and I will create a SPT E-Cookbook and share it with the group. Please include your first name, last initial, hometown and state, the recipe (duh), and any classification you think it might fit–kid’s fav, romantical, quick and easy, holiday favorite, cultural classic, drinks, etc.
I will collect recipes for a few months and put them all together and publish the first SPT Cook Book!
