Today I'm going to share with you how poorly we are eating. Since I have limited cooking facilities at my disposal, I'm trying to work with what I have: a microwave, a toaster oven and a pizza oven. Don't know what a pizza oven is? Well, if you ever spent time in bars in the midwest (NOT that I'm an expert mind you), you'd know that you can order pizza from the bar. It's a frozen pizza that is cooked in a pizza oven. Like this(don't judge me by the finger prints on the front...OH, go ahead, judge me):
Yesterday I took the easy way out and we had frozen pizza. Who knew we could eat THAT much frozen pizza (four). Tonight, I'm...improvising. Actually it's not me but my kids who discovered that if you put a tray on the rack of the pizza oven, you could bake a layer of french fries and chicken nuggets on it. Actually the kids are having chicken patties on a bun and french fries. I'll bake up chicken chunks for me and toss them in a caesar salad. The husband is making himself a steak salad.
Lest you think we're all about processed foods...well, we are. Breakfast had been Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Crunch Berries and Frosted Flakes. All in paper bowls that I throw away. Sue me. I DO however have a bowl of bananas, cuties, apples and oranges on the bar and everyone seems to be availing themselves to it.
And the funny thing is that I am finding this much more difficult than the meals I cook "from scratch". Which I think, ultimately, is a good thing much to my children's dismay.
