2 Dishes to Wash

Dinner time here at Yesteryear Acres is a long drawn out leisurely affair full of laughter, thought-provoking conversations, and of course delicious homemade food. We have always made family dinner time a priority. No matter how hectic or crazy our schedules might be, each evening we sit down in the dining room and enjoy a nice long family dinner. When our son left for college, Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I were faced with a dinner table with a lot of empty chairs.  All summer long our table has been full and now, we are down to two.  We have been avoiding our dining room table ever since our son left. We have been eating leftover meals in the kitchen and haven't made a real meal for the two of us. We even had a few dinners with the television turned on which is something we never do at dinner time. Well tonight, we faced the empty dining room and sat down and ate a real dinner together.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres picked tomatoes from our garden while I made some homemade bread crumbs and baked the tomatoes and prepared homemade pasta to go with the baked tomatoes. And do you know what?  It was nice.  We talked non-stop and we had more food than we could ever eat. I guess I will need to work on making smaller batches! After dinner was over......I only had 2 plates to wash! It seems that even an empty dinner table has an upside.  I was done cleaning the kitchen in record time!
