Every few weeks, I offer my husband & daughter their choice of dinner items. I refer to this as Diner Dinner. I begin by making fries since I know they both will want these. I also prepare a tossed salad that I serve while I am preparing the other items. You can offer a selection of dressings to your family, just like the diner.
I plug in the griddle so it can heat up while I prepare other items. My offerings include:
Don’ get too excited about the menu. The egg rolls are from the $ store. I can heat the taquitos & egg rolls in the microwave. I prepare the grilled cheese, burgers & hot dogs on my griddle. The soup is prepared on the stove.
It doesn’t take long to fix & its fun for the family. Younger kids enjoy this type of meal. You can vary your menu based on your family’s preferences. Your items might include:
Mac & Cheese;
Tacos (frozen from & store)
Choose items that are quick & easy to prepare. If you have multiple burners going on your stove, you’ve defeated the purpose. Quick & easy is the trick!
Pudding cups or a scoop of ice cream for dessert tops off this fun meal. Use Diner Dinner occasionally to treat your family to an at-home, dining out dinner experience! Such a Simple Joy!

I still remember the pegboard my sister had in her room when I was growing up. So many interesting things seemed to hang on that board, items that fascinated this little sister.

Now, it seems, like most things, pegboards are coming back into favor. Good Housekeeping offers a selection of ideas to help you incorporate pegboards into your home. The board in the photo is very cute. I especially love the small frame attached to the board. Use one of these ideas or let them inspire you! Either way, Enjoy!
