Simple love

It doesn't have to be fancy to be good. 

And sometimes it just has to be simple even if you can make it more complicated. 

I am often perplexed about what to make for dinner at home and for others. A lot of times I decide what to make for group events based on what is in the freezer and pantry to try to keep expenses down. Today I decided to make meatball "subs" - I say "subs" because I am using hot dig buns (because they are cheaper) with homemade Mac & cheese. I had to buy meatballs and cheese and buns but I have all the stuff for Mac & cheese :).

I could have made the meatballs from scratch but I decided it was just easier to buy them :) sometimes I have to make life easier on myself. It doesn't always have to be a major production (which sounds funny coming from me doesn't it?). It doesn't always have to be a complete production for someone to know you love them.  Sometimes it's a simple I loveyou, a hug, a card, or meatballs on a hotdog bun with yummy delicious cheese.

I think sometimes we think in order to show love it has to be a major production. 

For me, today, it's simple. A simple meal, for people I love extravagantly. 

I hope they know.

As always, I'm the lucky one.
