(Our mom has shopped at the same grocery store on the same day of the week for 20 years. We knew this place like the back of our hands!)
We would go to the store and everyone would pick out their special dinner item. We would combine our money with other siblings if we wanted to get something really big. We would rush home from the store and start cooking everything! While the food was all cooking (or microwaving) we would set the table, light a few candles and turn off all the lights. We thought it was so neat to have a candlelight dinner!
Many of our meals through the years consisted of frozen pizzas, egg rolls, and food our parents wouldn’t usually let us eat for dinner. It made for quite the “crazy dinner!”
I can’t wait to start this silly tradition with my little family (and I’ll be the one going for the egg rolls!).
