Well, this week, I feel like we're living up to exactly none of those expectations. My house is a mess, as always, and I've been fighting to get the kids to get much of anything done for school (yeah, we "really" started up this week again).
And of course, I'm providing my kids with healthy, natural, wonderful cooked from scratch meals... or not.
I did cook last night. Healthy, natural and from scratch? Not hardly.
So my made up on the spot recipe:
Take 2 boxes of mac and cheese. Cook the noodles, dump the sauce and the required butter and milk into a skillet. Add 1 can (tuna sized) of ham. Stare at that awhile.
Decide you could use some veggies, so chop up two tomatoes, and grab a handful of stuff you sauted once upon a time (celery, onions and carrots). Stare at it some more.
By this time, the noodles are done, so drain and add them. Stir, over medium heat, until you realize you simply are not coming up with anything else to add in at the moment.
Serve with bread. Bought from a store, of course, as that is pretty much all I ever serve.
My family said it was delicious and I need to make it again.
