Just a Simple Meal: Soup, Salad, Strawberries

Dear friends,

P.S. (PreScript):  If you are looking for my post on Cherry Strawberry Drink, click here. I linked it wrong on a blog carnival!)  Now, back to our “Just a Simple Meal” post:

Just a simple meal…

On Sunday afternoon we found that our kids (8 still living at home) wouldn’t be home for dinner — one of their married sisters was ordering pizza for them.

So it would be just the two of us!  We could have gone out to dinner, but our budget was tight and we’d just been out for dessert the night before.  I have a hand injury which has made cooking a bit difficult. We were both exhausted.  Simple sounded just right.


A can of chicken dumpling soup, with a little milk added to make it stretch.
A box of woven wheat crackers with Garlic Lovers hummus to dip it on.
A tossed salad that my husband had made at lunch time.
Fresh sliced strawberries and vanilla yogurt.

Yes, that will do nicely.
A relaxing dinner.
Just the two of us.
Just a simple meal.

Grace and peace,
Virginia Knowles

P.S. All of the food is from the Aldi grocery store.
