Moms Unite! How many times have you heard that phrase! “There’s nothing to Eat!”
It might be 20 minutes after they ate a four course meal but there’s nothing to eat! Or it’s after a party and there are boxes of leftovers.
Really, what they mean is “There is nothing I want to eat here.” Ok, so NOT my problem. I mean, there are salads, the stuff to make salads, leftovers from the last 2 nights ( inever keep anything more than 2-3 days), sandwich meat, and always always a soup of some sort in the frig. Come on! You can’t find ANYTHING to eat! Pul-lease - give me a break! The food is practically jumping out of the frig.
Folks – let it be known here, now and forever! I cook nearly every night of the week. Occasionally I slip, but 90 percent of the time, I do cook something. Even if I go away on a business trip, I cook a few things to tide the crew over. To say there is nothing to eat is an INSULT! HONESTLY!
I have two full refrigerators and one full freezer in my house. And when it is cold enough in the winter, there is so much food, I use my back porch as the extra frig. Why not?
Now, on the off chance there is nothing to eat – or nothing available that tempts the tastebuds – they can always make pasta, a sandwich, or here is a novel idea – COOK THEMSELVES! I invite my family to graduate from being kitchen assistants to creating on their own.
“THERE’S NOTHING TO EAT!” You bet there is!
