  1. I don’t remember the last time I made a soufflé. Luckily, it souffled.
  2. Due to crazy schedules, we've hit a pattern of the kids getting the leftovers of whatever hubby and I had the night before. On the upside, this has meant that the other night they had a pasta potluck featuring bucatini with creamy chickpeas and spinach, and cavatappi with spicy turkey pumpkin sauce, and tonight was boeuf bourguignon over sour cream "rustic" mashed potatoes. Of course, tomorrow we venture to Disney on Ice, which means violently-bright sno-cones in outrageously expensive souvenir cups and hitting the drive-thru on the way home because they don't like any of the "real food" at the Giant Center. #everythinginmoderation
  3. Chicken cacciatore* with cauliflower rice. *no one told them about the mushrooms, which were therefore consumed without complaint.
  4. Recently, I was making homemade chicken tenders, and the kids bemoaned the fact that there weren't any dino-shaped chicken nuggets (although they consumed the homemade breaded chicken with alacrity). Tonight, I announced that, for fun, I had purchased and would be preparing the aforementioned dino nuggets -- thanks Wegmans -- to much bemoaning of "but I don't waaaaaaant that!" Parenthood: for anyone who wants to be wrong ALL THE DAMN TIME. (Of course they ate the dino nuggets. Who wouldn't?)
  5. My 4.5yo is in a phase of critiquing everything (even if she goes on to eat it). Tonight, it was that there are "stripes" (ridges) on the pasta. I'm thinking back to when my French family served me rognons (kidneys) without (a) me knowing what a rognon was or (b) offering an alternative. Granted, I was older, but still ... lord wine me strength to deal with preschoolerhood again.
  6. When you promised your kids pasta but all you have prepared is vodka sauce ... well, eat hearty, kids! #thealcoholcooksoffright #dontcallCPS
  7. Oh, yours are the ones sharing that honor with mine! I keep warning them how disappointed they're going to be when it isn't tomato season any more. They don't believe me. Mwahahaha, their loss. With back-to-school this week and hubby out of the country, we've been eating a lot of couch picnics consisting of random leftovers. Phoning it in, to the max.
  8. GOOD LORD IS SUMMER OVER YET? I think tonight my kids ate cheesy scrambled eggs that were absolutely way more cheese than egg. I am so done.
  9. I don't know why, but this typo made me laugh hysterically. Bzzzzzz. 🐝🤣 Tonight my kids are eating deli turkey, brie, and (cooked) broccoli with hummus. But they also had dessert before dinner, since Big's camp went to the college bakery for a field trip today and came home with cupcakes and cookies, which of course we COULD NOT WAIT UNTIL AFTER DINNER to consume. I actually kind of prefer giving the massive sugar infusion before dinner; it gives their blood sugar time to regulate before bed.
  10. Not gonna lie -- achieving that feels like SUCH a huge success to me on the (incredibly rare) occasions it happens!! Why is it that children have the ability to leave just the right amount leftover that it's not enough for another meal, but too much to be part of anything else??
  11. Cheesy eggs, spinach dal and rice. My kids are so weird.
  12. I have a splitting headache and don’t feel like cooking. So my kids are eating leftover grilled chicken, salami, and jicama & celery with hummus. 🙄
  13. I had planned pizza for tonight (veggie marinara and sprouted-grain pre-made crust from Wegmans, to kind of make it healthy, plus a crapton of cheese, because kids). Of course, summer Fridays are “pizza lunch” at camp AND classmates have brought celebratory pizza lunch for my preschooler the last two days, so ... yeah, we might have achieved maximum pizza.
