Normally we eat dinner around 5pm. I don't know why we didn't today; other than having a big lunch and I just wasn't hungry. The boys internal dinner clock went off but I told them they had to wait. Well, they waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, Pastor Husband gets home from prayer and we still hadn't had dinner (he got home around 8:30). At 9pm I was convinced these fellas weren't going to let me off the hook so, 4 hours late, I go to the kitchen to find something.
By this time I don't want to cook. I open the pantry door and start digging. We're not as low as I had wanted to be after my pantry challenge, thanks in part to blessings from others and in part to failure on my part. Anyway, I find two bags of "prepared" fettucine alfredo. All I have to do is add water, milk, and pop it in the microwave. Ok, I can handle that. I also had some frozen broccoli in the freezer. Yep. That's what I whipped up tonight. Probably not the healthiest but I'm standing my ground that at least it had a veggie in it...and milk!
Here's how it rated:
Pastor Husband gives it a thumbs up but he wouldn't want it every day.
Oliver gives it a thumbs up with, "Wow mom! I love you and I loved dinner! I want some more!"
Noah gives it a thumbs down and made himself a sandwich.
Me? I liked it. It tasted pretty good but would have been better with chicken chunks and some kind of seasoning.
All in all, I guess we can call this a win. At least we ate, even if the boys were up 2 hours past their bedtime waiting on mom.
