If You're Anything Like Me...

and not that you want to be, but if you were...you MAY go the grocery store 'cause you promised your husband a fabulous meal when you returned home because the last time you cooked a real meal with all the food groups, people rode dinosaurs to work.

you MAY take two whole hours to purchase ten items at which point your husband may call you or leave you a frightening text that says, "are you dead, it's been a long time for some milk and carrots?"
( i was perusing the easter isle...with all those pastel colors...i couldn't pull myself away)!

when i finally arrived home, i set out to make a kick butt steak meal! however, if you were me you may realize that you forgot the kids' favorite part...corn on the cob!

okay, broccoli with cheese will make them happy.

okay, you forgot the cheese and cheese on the broccoli is like no buttercream frosting on the perfect cupcake. it just doesn't work around here.

plan B: what kid doesn't love a grilled hot dog...'cause that's the way we roll around here...we grill 'em or we don't eat 'em! just sayin.'

...okay, mommy forgot to buy more dogs. two won't do it. damn.

plan C: who doesn't like eggs, fried hot dogs and the french fries that were cooking in the oven to be served with the grilled hot dogs extra onions?!


mind you, this was i could think to put together after 'grocery' shopping for two hours!

and the cherry on the cake...

yes people, those are the last two hot dogs, fried to a crisp. i had to take them outside so the fire alarms wouldn't catch on to the fact that...mommy's a moron!

i still served it up. yes, i did. and for a bonus...we used old paper plates from my christmas brunch. beckham noticed and called me out.

so, i wasn't planning on posting tonight, but i wanted to award myself with the biggest loser award and tell my family...
it'll happen again and again, but i love you for smiling and eating the 'food' anyway!

xoxo

beckham looks a bit perturbed. lol.

did your husband also have a 1/4 of a hot dog or did you remember his steak? last night we had peanut butter and jelly tacos for dinner. (pb and j on a rolled up flour tortilla) thats how we roll.

Steaks- Tube steaks, same diff :)

If it's any consolation, we might be in contention for the "moron of the week mommy award". I've done some pretty brainless things this week..oy vey.

Take care,
Lori

I'm not alone.

You had very good intentions, I hope they acknowledged that. In fact, you should serve that for dessert.

If it makes you feel better. I'm alone tonight so the meal I made is off hiz'ook. A bottle (or two) of Sessions beer, a bowl of musilex, a yogurt, some dill and cherry garcia. Intervention please.

love it. that's a total free pass night! I operate under the rule that if you cook up a pretty decent meal most nights of the week, then on the rare occasion you fudge up a little, everybody has to pretend it's awesome anyway. Christmas plates and all.

And if you're anything like me, you can cook with the best of 'em, but burn EVERY single bag of popcorn (..and piece of toast for that matter) ever.

oh, you poor girl. but actually, such a thing would not be unheard of here! always make a list when you go to the grocery store - without the list, it will be forgotten. Even WITH the list I forget things, but it is much better with the list!

We are on a chocolate chip pancake kick in our house as I have made them three times in one week...but hey Mrs. Butterworth's is my friend because all she needs is water! Steaks are for summer...oh thats right you live in
Florida :-) Up here no man is worth freezin your ass off to go grill a steak...well maybe my man!

Love the new header! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can send hours just getting a couple of things. It's nice to take your time.
