snacky dinner

When Pete and I got married we carried on a tradition that his family had when he was young. On Sunday nights we didn't cook. We just kind of cleaned out the refrigerator and ate whatever snacky things were around. Sometimes it is the weeks leftovers or sometimes a bag of popcorn and some grapes-very random, which is half the fun. Since we have had kids this really happens more often than Sunday nights and Wilson has given it the name "snacky dinner." It is a favorite of the boys and pretty easy on this mama.
After a weekend out of town and a super low key day it seemed only appropriate to have snacky dinner- and it's even Sunday.
*I've also learned that you can even dress up snacky dinner if you have a cute tray.

Love this idea! and the thought of not cooking on Sunday and spending time w/ the fam. I pre-cook most of our meals on sport nights and reheat during shower time.

Oh, my parents do snacky dinner, too! Sometimes they do it 3-4 times a week. I think my mom likes it because then she gets out of cooking since it is just her and my step-dad. But, your snacky dinner looks better than any snacky dinner I've ever had!

I love snacky dinner nights! Growing up we kinda did the same thing for Sunday dinners.
