Before baby, when my husband was out of town or had dinner plans, I lined up sushi and sake dates with my girlfriends and headed out for some fun. Now that I am a mom, a 7 p.m. bowl of cereal is my idea of heaven.
When the sun starts to set and my oldest rascal gets hungry, I put on my mommy hat and whip up something creative, tasty and nutritious for her dinner. After bath and bedtimes, I'm back to the kitchen to cook up something for the old man and myself. But when he's out of town, you can bet a dose of Special K cereal does the trick.
