I always stated that I would not be sad when my nest was empty. I find that to be the opposite. I went through a period when he began college in June where I was conflicted and indeed very sad. On the one hand, I am proud and overjoyed that I raised such a smart, independant man. On the other hand ... I miss my baby!
That leaves the youngest and myself for suppers. With a 9 year old's taste sensibilities, my cooking routine is easy and quick. She likes her food plain and seperated. There is nothing more plain and seperated than chicken legs and thighs with a side of potato.
