This is one of my families favorites! I got this from my friend Bethany who was my neighbor while living at Wiesbaden, Germany. Two of my neighbors Bethany and Kelly both had husbands who were serving in Iraq for a year. Through it all they were so positive and stayed happy and really relied on each other too. They came up with this dinner plan of alternating which one would cook dinner for both families...Bethany had 2 kids and Kelly had 3 but it's hard to stay motivated and cook full dinners when your hubby is gone so this plan was perfect.
I am so lucky my husband is in the Air Force...when he has gone to Iraq or Afghanistan it's only for a few months not 12-15-18 like these Army families do like Kelly and Bethany had to do. Once when Steve had to go TDY for a week or two I could not believe Kelly and Bethany would have been thinking of me....they invited me for dinner so I would not be alone and could join in on their fun. Thank you guys!!!
Kelly is husbandless AGAIN right now. I think of her all the time with her three small girls. Well here is the yummy recipe Bethany shared with me...
