I'm a SAHM to 2 wonderful kids, ages almost 10 and just turned 7. My husband is a Marine and our family just moved back to northern VA from Jacksonville, NC. There were very few restaurants that we were familiar with.... and many dishes that we missed from our last stint here, so I started cooking A LOT while always looking for ways to enjoy our old favorites without driving an hour or more to get them (Camp Lejeune is like an hour from "the city" which is Wilmington, NC). Between the time on the road, gas $ and the cost of the meal (particularly if one of the darlings decides to be a fuss budget and not eat much) it gets costly across the board.
