So aside from this whole cooking all the time thing, I’d say this stay at home mom thing is going pretty damn great.
I don’t even really mind the cooking. It’s mostly the grocery shopping that annoys me. Mainly because I never know what I’m making so each meal requires a trip to the store. The closest one is WalMart. It’s torture. On my patience AND my wallet.
So, new game plan. I won’t say I’m menu planning because I always end up failing at that. I’m just going to have to come up with staples to have on hand at all times. Stuff the kids will eat. I also need to break them out of this whole “full course meal” mentality. They seem to expect fancy food with sides every time we sit down. It’s like they don’t even know me anymore!
What does one cook that’s a) budget friendly b) teen/preteen approved c) fast and easy and 4) relatively healthy?
