I guess I need to start planning my next multi-million dollar trip to the grocery store.  Before I know it the kids will be home from school with that oh-too-familiar war cry, “I’m huuuuuunnnngryyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  That’s translated to “I’m hungry” for those who don’t know Whinese.

If I don’t have a game plan, I’m doomed.  If the cupboards are bare, I’m doomed.  Therefore, as of right now, I am doomed.

To be truthful, there is some stuff in the cupboard, but stuff that they deem as not suitable for snacks.  Such as flour.  Really, flour is just a few short steps away from cookies, so why should they complain?  It’s like cookies in their purest form.  There is also a package of taco seasoning.  mmm-mmm!  Just add a little water, drink it down…it’s like a liquid Taco Bell!

Or they could go to the freezer and gnaw on a frozen pork chop.  But then they will start whining, “Raw meat?  Again?”  Whimps.

drink up!

And they complain when there isn’t anything to drink besides water.  Fine.  Looking in the fridge I see a bottle of lemon juice and a bottle of Worcestershire sauce.  Take your pick and quit complaining.

I guess I don’t really need to go to the shore after all.  There are plenty of snack options here now that I think about it.  My kids really don’t know how lucky they are to have a mom as thoughtful as me.


drink up!
