Weekend Meals and Family Time 4-6th May 2019

This weekend, Top Ender is a busy bunny. Last night, she and I drove down to the London Temple to be ready for doing Baptisms with the Youth of our ward this morning (in fact depending on when you wake up we have probably already completed the Baptisms and are on our way home!) and she has plans with Flyfour tonight (Saturday night) and that's on top of her normal weekend family things!

Luckily it is a bank holiday, so we have an extra day to hang out together. As I've said before, for our family, the weekends are a chance for us all to relax, to hang out together and reconnect and the activities we partake in and the food we eat during this time normally reflects that. Which includes the fact that the children have been told that they are being expected to cook with us Adults on the weekend, to increase the amount of time we spend together and to increase their cooking skills too.

It's kinda working!

This weekend we're having;

Saturday Lunch - Sandwiches
Saturday Evening Meal - Pizza

Flyfour and Top Ender are off out this evening, so they will be having an evening of Culture together (they're going to watch Tubular Bells For Two at The Stables) and Dan Jon and I are spending the evening probably playing video games together and eating snacks, which sounds like a fairly decent plan to me!

Sunday Lunch - Shepherd's Pie
Sunday Evening Meal - Sausage Baguettes

At some point on Sunday, we will sit together and watch a film. Flyfour has a fair few he wants us to watch from our family watch list, and we are trying to slowly work through them. This, of course, will be before everyone once again disappears to their own favourite spot to do their own Sabbath Day things.

Monday Lunch - Packed Lunch
Monday Evening Meal - Dirty Wedges with Beans and Cheese

It's traditional that we go for a walk on/around my birthday, so we'll be going today. I've got a great walk I want to go on, but only if it isn't raining. If it is, then we'll have to go visit an old favourite together.

So that's our plans, what are yours?
