I love what's happening at the Walden Media group, the ones who produced "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Check out their website for films they have coming, including one based on the life of William Wilberforce. My buddy Darryl Tippens just heard Michael Flaherty, president of the company, speak and said he's a seriously devoted Christ-follower. - - - - Meals are such a dance with two working parents. How do you provide dinners that are fairly healthy, fairly inexpensive, fairly easy, and fairly good? Here are some of our secrets: - Taco Tuesday at Rosa's (all right, that probably doesn't meet all four criteria--but it's inexpensive, easy, and [two out of three of us believe] good!) - Roasted whole chickens from the supermarket along with the "fresh" spinach salad-in-a-bag and a loaf of fresh bread - The crock pot (Diane's magic) - The outdoor grill (my magic) along with sauteed vegies from the pre-cut fajita pack (HEB) or steamed brocolli, which we all three love - Pasta with "homemade" marinara sauce--you know, the kind that was made in someone else's home but is sold at the grocery store (we love the ones from Central Market) - Fresh guacamole and chips--along with whatever leftovers you can find in the fridge Some nights (think: Saturdays and school holidays) one of us has the time and energy--working around soccer, basketball, baseball, or football--to actually COOK a meal that looks like something from childhood. But whether the meal was thrown together quickly or put together slowly, we almost always slow down and eat together without the television on. Last night we had "Steven Curtis Chapman" on--the first time we've listened to him in a long time. Still love his music. Any other fairly quick/fairly inexpensive/fairly healthy/fairly good meal suggestions?
