dinner, a rant

yesterday at 2pm
i started making dinner.

i put together a tilapia dish
with tomatoes, garlic, basil,
rice and beans.

i baked it and had it ready
in individual containers
to be heated up whenever.

problem -
my kids didn't like the tilapia.

so i made them fish sticks,
with yogurt cups,
and carrot sticks.
butterscotch pudding for dessert.

problem -
they didn't like the fish sticks either.

so i made them hot dogs.
as usual.
and i was exhausted.
the kitchen was destroyed.

and i still have to think of something for tonight.

oh man, right there w/you. rue the day i ever introduced chicken nuggets & hot dogs. are there children out there who will eat tilapia? i guess the answer is to keep trying although i just buy turkey dogs now to meet my mommy guilt in the middle.

ok, don't judge,
on the way home from the pool
i stopped at wendy's,
mcdonald's, and
burger king,
buying a kids' meal
at each stop.

everyone is happy.

I empathize. After an afternoon of slaving over cabbage rolls, my husband we like, "they're ok." five pots.
