* Valentine's Day Chronicles * When you can't afford to go out and/or you don't have a babysitter but you still want to do something nice for #valentinesday because... just because... * So I planned a simple #3coursemenu and it was all ready in under 2 hours... with intermittent #activityruns for the kids and then prepping the kids' dinner (which was not so glamorous🙈. Leftovers actually😂). We got the kids fed, and ready for bed a little earlier than usual and put them away🤪. It helped that they were really excited about us having a Valentine's dinner🤣. * Anyhoo for #dessert I made a #blueberrycream with #greekyougurt and #crèmefraiche For the occasion I made #chocolatehearts with some #sugarsprinkles Something light and #refreshing to finish off our meal * What did you guys do for Val's? #nofrills #nomoney #nobabysitter #valentinesdinnerwiththekidsinthehouse #valentinesdaychronicles #mumof4 #4momes #familylife #famille #ohana #survivaltactics #naijaswiss #makeitwork #simplemenu #starter #blueberries

Tuesday evenings are the most intense in terms of #activityruns I have to juggle 3 of the kids in the space of two and a half hours. Lots of #Backandforth driving 😳. So Tuesday dinners are always quick because I get back home at 7pm and bedtime is 8pm 😅. Last night's dinner was a quick #tortillalasagna which took me about 5 minutes to assemble and 15 mins to bake. I used some leftovers from meals of the last few days. Check out my stories to see the ingredients and step by step... with commentary from my younger son🤣. #nofrills #intensetuesdays #makeitwork #sur#survivaltactics #mumof4 #4momes #familylife #famille #ohana #survivaltactics #healthyeating #quickmeal #readyinajiffy #bukabukimeansbukisrestaurantinyoruba #naijaswiss #miam #tropbon #ewajeun
