Dinners have always been a laid back kind of affair at our house. We have never had a set time for diner and as the kids got older it can became anywhere between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Earlier in the winter and much later in the summer.
Some nights it’s later just because we are struggling with a case of dinner dilemma. You know what I’m talking about, right? It’s the agony of trying to figure out what to make for dinner yet again. Luckily, I can always rely on my friends at Ragú, who keep mealtime easy, to help me out.
Each jar of our Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is made with 11 juicy tomatoes making it its richest, thickest recipe. There are so many easy recipes to make with Ragú. Our favorite is the super simple spaghetti squash spaghetti. Since Ragú is so delicious on its own I simply heat up a jar of sauce and serve it over spaghetti squash. Add a side salad and dinner is done in no time at all.
If you’re not sure what to make with Ragú be sure to check out the delicious recipes on the Ragú Facebook page.
Regardless of when dinner finally lands on the table we use it to reconnect and chat about our day. Em is homeschooled so we are together all day long, but, surprisingly, we don’t talk a lot during the work day. Dinner time gives the three of us (Alan, Em & I) a chance to hear about each other’s day and talk about plans for the future.
Right now dinner time is full of excited chatter from Em about her move to Florida in the fall. The things she is most looking forward to, apartments she has found and what she hopes to do. It’s a thrilling time right now and I’m embracing every moment of it.
