Swim season allows for very little reprieve from being on dinner-duty. My Hyvee freezer meal night is my saving grace for our healthy dinner menus (with an occasional meal from my MIL!), but crock-pot dinners wear themselves out after awhile - especially when dealing with picky eaters who groan at anything that comes from my beloved slow-cooker.
So last night when Colby and Owen showed up with grocery bags after his basketball game, I couldn't have been more excited to have a non-slow-cooker/casserole dinner. He made us steak, a fresh salad, and some homemade bruschetta with avocado and salmon.
They also picked up a box of brownie/cookie mix, which is against my from-scratch dessert standard. However, I let the box mix slide out of principle of a sweet gesture.
