This past month, along with start of Little League season, we had our "Opening Day" ceremonies. Opening Day started at 10am and the ceremony continued through lunch. From there the teams headed out to their games. The day wasn't finished until the last team played their last out, which took a very long time.
We had two games, one for each of our players and we spent any free time we had watching friends play. We spent a total of nine hours on ball fields. The girls played on the playground and with other tiny spectators. We enjoyed seeing all the families we know and watching the boys play. We traveled from field to field and made many trips to the bathrooms and the snack bars.
It's important to me that my girls join us when we have events such as Opening Day, because it becomes a family affair. We encourage our kids to support each other, and that means sometimes giving up play dates and sleepovers. We gave the kids money for raffle tickets and we packed snacks and drinks. I walked them over to the playground and we enjoyed time together. We knew going into Opening Day we'd be gone for many hours, and hand wipes and patience are a necessity.
After a long day of eating snack bar food the LAST thing we felt like eating for dinner was fast food. Trouble was, the last thing I felt like doing was going to the store and preparing a big meal. We all returned home hungry and tired, MOM included. This year, I was blessed to have a family sized Stouffer's Lasagna with Meat and Sauce in the freezer and we continued our family time with a delicious dinner at home. We walked in the door exhausted and in just over an hour we enjoyed a meal with no preservatives and real mozzarella cheese that tasted homemade.
This time of year we are constantly in and out, headed to practices and games. While frozen meals may not work for everyone, on busy days they work for us. Stouffer's has many dinner options, and I feel better feeding my kids their meals than heading for the drive-thru. The food tastes fresh and I know it's made with quality ingredients. On days like Opening Day, or days we have to finish homework and get in the car for baseball or gymnastics, I'm glad I have Stouffer's in the freezer.
If you're out and about like we are, try Stouffer's for dinner. There is also the Stouffer’s Meat Lovers Lasagna for that meaty craving. I'm including some great moneysaving coupons below. Wishing you an abundance of time with your families this spring and summer!
