Well, my favorite little munchkins went home today. I guess some people in this world actually have lives to get back to and can’t bum off of their in-laws for a whole summer.
I know it sounds silly but this morning it was incredibly fun to help get them ready and feed them breakfast.
I was told that I make the most perfect toast ever and that I will make a great mom. Coming from my 5 year old neice, those were the two best compliment she could have ever given me:)
This little nugget may seem small, but she can chow down……2 bowls of rice krispies in 5 minutes flat.
After saying our goodbye’s (don’t worry, I only cried a little bit) we darted off for church and came home starving because I decided to spend more time getting ready than eating which I NEVER chose to do…..I must be getting sick. I only managed to grab a hard-boiled egg, string cheese and nectarine on the way out for breakfast so first thing first (after getting into pj’s of course) was making a vat of popcorn.
After eating approximately 3/4ths of that bowl I started thinking about what I should have for lunch.
Internal dialouge (actually I might have said it out loud too but I was talking to myself): “Your favorite ginormous salad sounds amazing right now. There are so many fresh vegetables in the fridge calling your name and nothing is better than adding popcorn on top of your favorite carrot/turkey/cottage cheese/hard boiled egg/peppers/balsamic vinagerette salad. But wait……you have to eat something interesting and different for the blog…..before I could finish that sentence I started laughing at myself. Really, I am not going to eat what I want so I can post something different for the blog.”
So, moral of the story……eat what you feel like and end it with a bag of swedish fish because your father-in-law brought home 28 bags of them.
If you have a food blog do you feel like you have to constantly try new things or eat differently than what you truly want?
-Sometimes when I think I am eating the same things a lot but then I remember that that is real life and before the blog I rotated 3 lunches for the entire school year.
What is the weirdest thing that you add to your salads?
-Some people (okay, you guessed it…Billy) think it is strange that I love adding pickles, goldfish or popcorn to my salad.
Let’s be honest here….do you drink the leftover milk straight from the cereal bowl?
-You better believe it. Sometimes I even add a little bit of chocolate syrup to make it chocolate milk.
