I'M A GENIUS


okay, so for me the worst question EVER is "what's for dinner?" it sends chills up my spine and a pit in my stomach. it's not that i don't like to cook or even that i don't have ideas..... i just hate the question because usually my day has gotten away from me and by the time it is time to start cooking, there is no meat thawed or thought of what to cook. in situations like this in the past i would revert to the ever so reliable grilled cheese sandwich or home made pizza or turkey and cheese sandwiches. (i have not yet made my kids a bowl of cereal for dinner.)
so i have FINALLY come up with a solution. it has only taken me 9 1/2 years to figure this out, but better late than never, right? okay- so for my great solution..... i have found a good friend that has similar taste in food and a similar desire to feed her family properly and we are each preparing 5 meals (5 for her and 5 for me). in the end we wind up with 10 meals each and lots of sleepless nights wondering what will be for dinner on those very busy, hectic days.  granted i spent an entire day preparing lots of food, but the end result is priceless! my freezer is stuffed with yummy food and i don't have to dread that awful question anymore! happy cooking.

yeah melissa would eat at your house cuz she doesn't cook! if i were her kids i would want to too!!!lol uummm yeah that is a great idea, it won't work of us just because my kids are super picky. yes they get it from me. and yes i am ashamed to admit it but i have had cereal for dinner. but if you know me it makes sense. and thats only if i have a meeting to go to or something else was going on. otherwise I do always have a dinner every night! i plan it around lunch time.

you are a planner and you are so good about dinner's and being prepared. i am not. another good thing to do is if you are making a meal for dinner that can be frozen, just make extra and put it in your freezer for next time.
