I have a confession to make…I ate cereal for dinner last night.
Yes, cereal. Honeycombs to be exact.
My 15 yr old grabbed the first bowl which gave me the idea and I just went with it.
I gave into my exhaustion and right then decided I did not want to prepare a meal.
My DH was off helping his brother and my little one ate popcorn.
So I grabbed my bowl of cereal and went to town. And as I enjoyed that bowl of Honeycombs I thought to myself “self, you quite possibly could live off sandwiches, cereal, and popcorn for the rest of your life if it weren't for
Would I not enjoy food so much if I didn’t have kids?
Could I be such a food simpleton?? Maybe.
Or was I just enjoying being off the hook for one night so I could just lie in bed watching TV and for once go to bed at a decent hour?
BAM! I hit my wall on a Wednesday.
I usually don’t hit it till Thursday and that is why I cook so much and prepare in advance so that all I have to do is some minor food prep and voila, dinner is on the table.
There were plenty of pre-cooked meals in that fridge, but I didn’t even want to bother with pressing buttons on a microwave.
So I relished in my freedom.
When my husband came home with my nephew, I shooed him away to the kitchen to prep his own dinner.
8:00 p.m. – I’m home free.
No dishes, no clean up…when all of a sudden in a flash, my little one flies into my room and exclaims “no one fed me dinner!!!”.
DOH!! I almost got away with it…that bowl of cereal.
Got to remember that this kid was born at the height of my interest in cooking.
So he doesn’t know what it is to just have a little snack and call it a night.
Plan B – instruct my little one to bat his sad hungry little eyes at DH to prepare him a meal.
Something light since it was late. And my son walks in double fisted, a PBJ sandwich in each hand.
Someone call CPS, my son went a night without a full 3 course meal!!
Well, I got my good night’s sleep and I think I can jump over my wall today and get back to my typical domestic schedule.
We all sat and had breakfast together this morning and my only guilty pang was that we all didn’t sit together last night.
Alas, it’s a new day and I’m hungry for some real food.
Happy Thursday all!
Provecho, no matter what you eat today!!
