I'm lazy. I've already told you I'm pretty much a lazy mommy. You shouldn't be surprised by now!
C'mon, I like to take as many shortcuts as I can when it comes to daily chores! Somethings just beg to be done in 30 minutes or less! Take meal prep for one thing...nah take it for three things! 3 meals a day!
Okay, I'll admit, I only "prepare" one meal a day....dinner meal. Supper. The last meal of the day. The other meals are: Breakfast: grab what u want or wait for the weekend when momma has time to "prepare" something worthwhile. Lunch: slap it on some bread & call it good or wait for Sunday dinner/lunch when momma pulls out the crock pot & has time to "prepare" a healthy spread!
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE TO COOK!! I just have 3 out of 5 very, VERY picky eaters. They don't like anything "healfy" as they say (on a daily, 3x's daily basis).
I like to make things that are easy and some what healthy & tasty. If they don't eat it, well they know how to spread p.butter on some w.w. bread & call it done!
It's so bad with the oldest girly that this year I told her if she would sit down at the dinner table, not say anything negative about the food in front of her, not whine or complain & would try new things....brace yourself mommas.....I would pay her a quarter for each new food! A quarter!!
Do you know how much money she could make in one day!! ONE DAY...seeing as most foods that I make she has never tried or tasted!! (I kid you not).
There is one catch to this tho'. You know the above mentioned p.butter & bread. Well, more often than not if the girly makes toast or sandwich for her dinner she leaves the mess all over the counter! So, I told her that if she tried new foods= .25 If I had to clean up her messes= .25!!! Ha! Momma can get the new ZhuZhu pet she wants too!
Tally today......girly Lauryn = .25 mommy's total = .25 Even stevens!
Here's some pics that I took @ lunch the other day when I fixed soup & sandwiches for GP & myself. Food for thought, easy & delicious. My kind of meal!
|Browned the onion in olive oil, poured in the boxed soup & canned tomatoes. Seasoned w/ pepper & garlic salt. Forgot the Italian seasoning, which is really yummy in this soup!|
