This event is a testament to what happens when a group of women plays and supports their individual strengths. Eva is the point guard on our food events because she has the ability to stage food and spaces beautifully. Anyone who has seen my house knows that I have a lot of strengths but design is not one of them.
So to give her a couple of hours to write instructions and give us her plan clearly, I took her beautiful girls for a couple of hours.
My secret is that no one goes to the store if they are hungry or tired and I usually pack snacks like I'm going on a hike in Algonquin park. It might be overkill but who the hell wants to go to the grocery store with crabby kids??
The key for Moms is that they need a bit of space to write those directions.
After school we went to the East Lynn Farmers Market. Snap peas were the perfect market buy because they came with a zipper and were a delicious veg complement to the cherry and grape snacks that we bought at the grocery store before school.
