Can I just say how grateful I am for Stouffer’s? I mean really, what full-time working mom can make it through a week without at least one meal born in the freezer? Or maybe two. If you can, more power to you.
I realized yesterday afternoon that I had not prepared a vegetable for my family in a week. Bad Mommy! So last night there was a big salad and a nice lasagna, which I managed to cook perfectly, thank you very much. The directions were very easy. Ha!
But in all seriousness, the nightly dinner battle is just one I have chosen not to fight. I’d like to say I do my grocery shopping every weekend and have a nice meal plan all laid out for the week, but that of course would be a big, fat lie and probably not going to happen in this lifetime. But I do what I can, I cook healthy meals when I can, I try out new recipes when I can, I (make Lynn) grill up a nice steak when I can, and I order pizza when I can. Oh yeah, and I go to the gym when I can. But that’s another conversation for another day. Today I choose to do what I can and not stress about what I can’t do. I choose to do what has to be done, and do it well, and the rest will still be there tomorrow.
