A Week Late
Tonight was another day coming home late.  I think this may be our new normal.  I'd pulled out the tilapia last night to thaw and planned to finally make those fish tacos I was supposed to make last week.  The fish wasn't quite finished thawing, so Sera & Jim got a snack.  They loaded up on Triscuits and spinach dip while I started dinner.  I was slightly delayed waiting for the fish to finish thawing, so Sera went looking for another snack.  I told her that dinner was coming soon so no more snacks.  She groaned and said, "but I don't like dinner, Mommy."  I told her she didn't even know what we were having.  She replied with a distinct sneer, "Yes, I do.  Healthy food." 

Healthy food or not.  She wanted to help.  I called her after I fried the fish to help assemble the tacos.  I put her on shredded cabbage detail.  She loves helping in the kitchen, and she loved the fish tacos.
