You know, for someone who stays home with babies all day--babies who nap--I really should be able to prepare some amazing meals. Do I? Nope. Could I? Probably. If I had any desire to. But, I don't.
Thank gawd for school lunch (they've changed to all wheat products this year so I'm feeling less guilty about it), and Easy Mac'n'Cheese. But even SpiderMonkey's getting sick of that lately. I found this one day after he brought me his empty bowl, announcing "Dawn (gone)."
And when KingKong comes home after work, SpiderMonkey runs to greet him, "Daaaaddddyyyyy, home. Dizza (pizza)?" And when he turns the corner, he cries when he doesn't see his friend, the large white box holding greasy pepperoni slices. Yum. Anyhow, I've decided I really need to step it up a bit. Okay, A LOT.
I've done the whole menu plan before. It does work. A couple weeks before the Twinkeys came, I planned three months worth of meals and bought the first three and a half weeks worth of groceries for around ninety dollars. You can definitely save money that way. But it gets old. Not the food, but the process. Booooooring.
A lot of Moms do the Crock Pot thing. I had a Crock Pot once. That's how many times I used it. That was an experience...and another Pizza night, if I remember correctly. *sigh*
