Thank you for the outpouring of congratulations to Steve and Nicole regarding the wonderful surprise of our vacation. Nicole is doing well, even though she is in the throes of morning sickness—or more accurately, all-day sickness. Mercifully, the nausea didn’t kick in until the last two days of the vacation.
Speaking of vacation, some of you emailed to ask what we do for meals. A Mahaney family tradition is to go all together to the grocery store on the first day to choose our favorite breakfast, lunch and snack foods. I’m sure the employees at Dandridge, Tennessee Food City are still talking about the clan of 14 who showed up at their store to buy groceries.
For dinners, we draw from the standard fare - hamburgers, hot dogs, tacos, and pizza. Some other easy dinner meals are - Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce (sauce made and frozen beforehand), Stromboli, and White Barbecue Chicken (download recipes here).
Then again, easy recipes are not just for vacation, they are useful year round, right?!
