Dinner on the Go

Last night officially started our volleyball season.  Over the next 8 weeks, Kaylee will have 23 games.  Following those 23 games are three weeks worth of playoffs and championship games.

Most of the games are away games.  The one we attended last night started at 6PM and was an hour’s drive.  The last game ended about 10PM.

I’m stubborn enough to refuse to compromise on nutrition to accommodate traveling to away games; nor do I want to eat out three or four nights a week.  Consequently, we have to pack and go with dinner.

Yesterday, I planned to make hamburgers.  But, my afternoon got away from me and I didn’t get the buns made in time.  While I thought about what to do, it occurred to me that I don’t want to spend the next 8 weeks eating beef hot dogs and hamburgers.  I figured, why not just make a meal and serve it on paper plates?

Last night was the test run, and it worked well!

I made Meatloaf, Sour Cream Potatoes, and green peas.  I served them on paper plates with plastic forks, and the boys used the bleachers as a table.

After we ate dinner, we were able to sit back and enjoy watching the JV team prevail against their opponents.  It was a great evening.

Although, high school gymnasiums are really loud, and volleyball games are SUPER loud.  Scott has highly sensitive hearing, and we had to cover his ears.  I need to find some small ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones before the next game.
