Sometimes things are so crazy when I first get home from work that I can’t really sit down for dinner.

Thankfully, I have quick meal options for my foster daughter on those days; which meant that when we got home late today and I needed to feed the kid quickly so that I could get ready for a visitor, I was able to pop some nutritious, homemade split pea soup in the microwave for her.

Of course, by the time our visitor left and I got the kid to bed, there wasn’t really time for me to cook something for me. Nor did I have the energy.

So I guess it’s a good thing that I had fixings for a proper grownup dinner in the house: Ice cream and toppings and a pack of ginger biscuits.

Yum! Dinner’s ready!
