If you hadn’t heard already….I’m done with college!!! So now I’m attempting to regain, and enjoy, my mommy/wife duties. One of those things is cooking dinner. In all honesty, I HATE fast food. Yeah, it’s easy and all but it tears up my stomach and it is just not healthy for us. And I also HATE cooking. I think a big part of it comes from when I was a kid and cooking dinner and doing dishes were punishments. It took the joy right out of it and now I snarl when dinner time comes. And it is hard not to strangle the kids when they ask me what is for dinner. It’s worse to hear that question than to hear, “Are we there yet?”
So, I’m sitting here trying to make a menu for the next month so I can make my grocery list of off it. Sound simple but I’m dying here. I don’t want to repeat things if at all possible. I realized that there isn’t a whole lot of stuff that I know how to make. Or I can remember that I know how to make. I tried to get Lauren to help but she only thought of a couple of things. That leaves 26 more days. I asked Matty but all he kept saying over and over was Sonic. The boy has been brainwashed…lol. I went through and put stuff down that I can remember that the kids like. So I now just have 1 week left to figure out. There has to be 7 menu ideas that are easy to do and that my kids like. I texted my hubby to call me when he gets a moment. He has been the chef the last few years. He HAS to have seven ideas. I hope
I called Rachel. She is with her dad this weekend. She came up with three more ideas I didn’t have. Four days left to fill out. Hmmmm. I mentally going down the aisles at the store. Maybe if I go raid the deep freezer I can come up with something. Ewww….there is a turkey out there. Turkey in May….lol. Oh and we are camping four of those days. I’m done!!
