Date night and green onions

February 1st, 2013 at 08:32 pm

Tonight is date night with my 4 year old grandson. He got to pick dinner...we had McDonalds. I took him to one with a big play place and he seemed to have a great time. I would have preferred something else for dinner, but it was his choice.

We came home and watched a movie together, now he is playing and using up the last of his energy before bedtime.

A couple of nights ago the hub bbqd tri tip and we had baked potatoes. I love green onions on baked potatoes, but when I pulled them out of the fridge, they were pretty soft...so I decided to forego the onlions. But I put them in a glass of water..and tonight, they are all perked back up. I trimmed the ends and have a nice healthy supply to use this weekend. I plan to just keep them growing this way. I dont use much, so I should be able to grow enough for me easily..all I need is water, a glass and a little sun from the window. The cost is right..and I will always have onions when I need them! At appx .75 a bundle, its not huge, but it is an easy way to save a little.

DD3 got paid today and I am tickled to say she has now paid us back in full...and has a real live savings account!! Go DD3!

So glad the weekend is here! I am looking forward to slowing my pace down for a couple of days and catching back up at home. Tonight, enjoying my date..life is blessed!

    Smile Four is my favorite age. They are so happy, imaginative, and have such sparkle!

    I am living with a 4 year old! Nothing better than coming home from a hard day at work and seeing that happy little face and HI GRANDMA! I am enjoying every minute of it. I had date night with my granddaughter and two friends from high school the other night. Luckily she did well in the nice restaurant for 2 hours and hugged my friends that she had just met goodbye.

    Lol. I've said, "isn't four the best age!?!". Other parents tended to look at me like I was totally insane. Maybe 3. 3 is supposed to be the worst, but my kids always communicated so well. So not much drama, but they were potty trained and that glimpse inside their head was priceless. great age! my 7yo still talks about imaginary characters from when he was 3. The stories have just grown up a bit. (he is the uber creative one. Older one never had imaginary characters. But was still beyond cute to watch how he perceived the world).

    P.s. McDonald's is #1 in my house. I just don't eat the food there. It kind of horrifies me. I do like the fries, so might eat at home and just order fries whe I take the kids.

    I always liked age 4 the best too. My DS loves Arby's the best unless we are visiting Nana and then they have a big playplace at McDonald's and he wants that. LOL

    Great that your DD is doing so well with her money early on. You must have taught her well!

    I think I'm going to have to try that with green onions ... I like to use them in my corn casserole/pudding but if I don't get to it right away, the onions are mush.

    Thank you everyone. 4 year olds are so creative and innocent. We really had a good time last night. Next Friday is my 4 year old granddaughters date night. (My daughters had babies 3 months apart!)

    Laura- it works awesome. You can keep them in water for a long time, and they grow and replenish quickly. Let me know how it works for you!!
