Today I picked up my oldest son up from middle school baseball tryouts. On the way home he asked "What's for dinner? I am starving"
So I told him "I am trying a new twist on an old recipe."
He responds "Aaannnddd, it is........"
I say "Beef stew, and I have tried it. It is so yummy."
There is a moment of silence that lingers on for a few moments and then he says
"I know we are trying to be healthy and all. And it is good and all. And I am not trying to complain. I am really not. Cause I really know it is good for us......
(Wait for it here it comes)
BUT...... (LOL. I told you it was coming) when are we going to have normal meals again? I mean we haven't had cheeseburgers, or tacos or poppy seed chicken (a very creamy chicken casserole) or macaroni and cheese with ham in forever. I can't remember when the last normal meal was."
ROTFLMBO (rolling on the floor laughing my butt off)!!!!!!!!
I guess I really am changing the way I am cooking and it is noticed. I think my oldest thought
"Here mom goes on one of her tangents. It won't last long. I just need to grin and bear it and make it through until she reverts back to her old ways."
So I told him friday night will be his night, and I will make whatever he wants for dinner. He chose cheeseburgers on the grill. Little will he know I will make soy burgers, or veggee burbers, or turkey burgers with shredded zuchinni mixed in to hide some veggies. LOL. Just kidding. Although that is how I will make half of the burgers.
