The one thing(ya right, one thing) that makes me think I was not cut out for parenthood is DINNER! I actually like to cook, I just don't like to cook for my family. If I have a dinner party or something fun to cook for, I really love it. But dinner every night? Is cereal OK? Maybe it is the eeeww reaction that turns me off. When I do cook I try to cook healthy, yummy meals. I get the eeewww, not just from my children either. My husband(who shall remain nameless) (Laugh break sorry, sometimes I crack myself up) is the worst of all of them. Lately, he has been trying to save our marriage by just saying he's not hungry. But who does he think he's foolin? At least Chrispy likes my food. I like my food! So there's that.
Then, there is also the grocery shopping aspect of it all. Let's just say if I'm going shopping, I don't really want to be buying food. So I always put it off until our fridge is completely empty( except for mustard and salad dressing of course). I know, I need to plan. Well, have you met me? I don't plan! Yesterday we went to New Seasons for dinner. It is the most beautiful grocery store in the world, but when we got there I just could not spend $6 each for sandwiches for my kids. They wanted white bread, ham, and cheese. We actually had that in our empty fridge. (whole wheat bread though). So I ordered some wonderful stir-fry and drove home to make sands for the kids. They were not happy. I wasn't really happpy either. Tonight, I made myself go to the GS and pick up food for dinner( just one night) and I am making potato and corn chowder. All from scratch, corn cut off the cob, organic skim milk, beautiful yukon gold potatoes, leeks, procuttio, and all that good stuff. I have already gotten a couple of eeeewwww's. Maybe it's just that I am too stubborn to cook what they want( frozen corndogs and top ramen). My nameless huband's favorites are manwich and hamburger helper! Can someone please hamburger help me!!!!
Sorry for the little rant. I still love my life and all!!!
