WFMW- Lunch for Dinner & Dinner for Lunch

I was sharing with a friend the other day about our new daily schedule. She told me that I should share this tip.

When school started this year (Sept) our son's gymnastics team changed their work out time from the morning time (Summer schedule) to a night schedule. Andrew now practices from 5:30 to 8:30 pm 5 days a week.

Well, that means he/we have to eat at 4:30 so he can have food before he practices.

So, my hubby suggested we switch our "menu" around. Now, we have our big "dinner" type meal at lunch and at 4:30 pm we eat more of lunch type food (sandwiches).

Of course this works for us because we homeschool and Jay come home for lunch.

Another benefit to this schedule is the dining room table stays cleaner. I have more time and energy after lunch to do the dishes then after dinner. So, I love having a clean kitchen when I wake up in the morning.

If you want to read more tips you can find them at Shannon's blog.

We do this too, especially when hubby is out of town for work. There is no mess at night to clean up and I believe everyone sleeps better not having such a heavy meal sitting on their stomach.

Thank you for sharing it!

This is a very creative way of making sure everyone is fed and still able to do activities! I love the fact that you have less clean-up at night.

It isn't practical for our schedule, but as a child living in Africa we had our main meal around 1pm (dinner) and supper was a light fare in the evening. When it works it is great!

Thanks for popping by my blog this week!

Thanks for stopping by my place!

Seems like this would be one I would have already thought of...;-)

It's a great idea for us as we have dance on Wed and Thur and it comsumes the entire block of time from 3:30 until 8:30 (this includes travel time as we live 40 miles away from the studio). Eating fast food is expensive and is very heavy on the little tummies of my dancers.

Thanks for the tip - we'll be trying it out this week.
