WHAT …IS… THAT?
Lunch?! *gasp!* It’s… It’s…
I know what it is. It’s canned pasta. It was on clearance at leTarget, and it was one of my favorites when I was a kid.
And now you’re feeding it to your own? How could you?
Very easily… open the can, pour into bowl, nuke about a minute, and holler for the boys to come and get it.
You know what. You KNOW what… Here you are, with every resource, every recipe, every farmer’s market and stand and youtube cooking videos at your fingertips, and you … open a can. Ug.
Look… I’m busy. I’ve got stuff to do, blogs to write, email to delete…. A can of pasta every now and then isn’t going to kill them. Besides, I made that roasted tomato sauce last week for supper….
Oh yeah! Show everybody! Show ’em!
Okay, yes, I admit it – I’m proud of my homemade tomato sauce….
But look… hey… no guilt, okay? There’s nothing wrong with opening a can every so often. You canNOT have it ALL….
Yes you can…
No, you can’t ! You cannot have it ALL and keep your sanity as well!
Seems like that’ s a big topic of debate on womens’ issues these days…
Well, yes… online at least. My debates lately have been mostly about how it’s important to wake up at a decent hour and find a better job and help around the house and eat a green vegetable at least once a week. You know, if I could have a housekeeper or even a cleaning service every other week, or the metabolism to be able to eat take out for dinner weekly, then sure – you could give it to me with both barrels. But for now, canned pasta, jarred pasta sauce, boxes of mac&cheese or ramen noodles into my sons’ bottomless stomachs will do just fine, thanks.
Well, I guess it’s better than that pizza roll on white bread that Fins made for himself …
…*groan*… Kick me while I’m down….
I’m happy to have what I have already. Contrary to popular belief, having a little bite of everything isn’t the key to happiness. It’s using up all your passion on one thing at a time, exhausting it to shreds, examining every aspect, loving it to death, be it cooking, writing, or testing ticks in a science lab….
What do you think? What’s your passion… and how much of it have you explored? I’m only at the beginning of mine.
