The dreaded words...

"What's for dinner Mom?"

Oh how I dislike those words lately.  I used to be able to come up with a weekly list of everything we were going to eat that week.  I used to come up with these completed shopping lists that got me to the end of the week.  What's wrong with me? 

As I write this, I have no idea what's for dinner.  I am so sick of chicken, gr. beef and pork.  If it were just me, I could survive on cereal, coffee, toast, salami, crackers, cheese, and red wine...that simple.  But no, I have 4 people relying on my cooking skills (good and bad) for sustenance.  UGH!  It's so tiring, overwhelming!

*OK...Break time!  I made myself hungry...be right back...the salami, cheese and crackers sound too good.  I guess I'll skip the wine for a bit.  It is only 1:30 in the afternoon.  

Does anybody else have these issues?  

This is what's in the fridge...the aforementioned chicken and ground beef 

Hmmmm...what to do with these lam-mo ingredients.  Something where everyone doesn't say "again?" 

Oh man!  The "lovebugs" are home within the hour.  I can do this...I can do dinner one more time! 
Remember, bedtime is just in a few hours!  (Red wine is in only 3!) 
I CAN do this!
The other dreaded words..."mooooooommm, K is giving me the mad face!" 

Off to motherhood!

It is sometimes overwhelming; but then I start flipping through my recent recipe collection & soon have some inspiration. I know you'll figure it out & everyone will be very happy.
