Subtitled: Meal Ideas When You are Tired and Everyone is Tired
Today, when it seems everyone I talk to is exhausted because of the combination of heat thunder heat rain heat humidity heat rain heat oh there goes a canoe down the middle of the street heat and my lone geranium is now salad because of the heat rain combo, it’s time to come up with meal ideas when you are tired and everyone else is tired.
The easiest solution, of course, is to go out for supper. But exhaustion levels are high, we’ve eaten out a lot lately, and getting organized to get in the car sounds like too much work. Even if we made it to the car, my crab-o-meter would be high, so one wrong comment about my unladylike response to a gentlemen in the big ugly diesel truck cutting us off, could equate to an evening of sulking in separate rooms.
Let’s avoid that and go through the cupboards and fridge and come up with some meal ideas! (Note, I am not a dietician, and this list is NOT dietician friendly).
- Peanut butter sandwich
- Left over tuna sandwich (which Michael will be having since he forgot to take my 5 am labour of love to work with him today for his lunch)
- Salad (providing salad is premixed and dressing is premixed)
- Microwaveable “lean” meal in cardboard box covered in ice crystals that you bought in 2006 after eating too much junk food one day with the idea that THIS is the ticket to become super model thin super fast
- Campbell’s Soup
- Coke Zero
- Expired vanilla yogurt
- Grilled cheese!
I believe I can muster up the energy to make a grilled cheese sandwich for supper. Here goes:
Once supper is done, and before flaking out on the chesterfield, rummage through cupboards to find the bag of jujubes your husband hid on you.
