I cheated at dinner tonight. Christopher is out of town again, and I wasn't in the mood to try and wrestle a full-fledged meal from my pantry shelves. Instead I contrived something resembling sound nutrition using:

Kraft Mac and Cheese
Ball Park Turkey Franks
Ore-Ida Tater Tots

I will state for the record that not even this kid-inspired version of Nirvana made the 100% satisfied cut. Everyone had a combination of the above mentioned morsels, but no single eater ate all three. However, Caleb (who is allergic to dairy, and so was forced through genetic disqualification to partake in only 2/3 of the meal's delicacies) announced the following:

This is the BEST meal in my WHOLE life.

Why do I bother?


  1. His rehearsal dinner should be a breeze!

  2. Girl you are too funny - I love your writing and your family :-)
    I'll be in Monterey Sept 11-12, Nate is doing the Pacific Grove Tri. Will you be around?

  3. I know the feeling, But you have way more little ones each one having their own oppinions that you have to tend with. Wow you are the model mom, Love you
