Family Meals...yeah, what's that?

I suppose I'm an "OK" mom overall.  But I most definitely stink in the "family meal" department.  You see, my diet is pretty wacky...compared to the rest of my family.  But, every once in a while I actually put the effort in and prepare a family pleasin' home-cooked meal.  Tonight?  Well, it was chicken thighs, carrots, and potatoes, all seasoned and cooked to perfection.  How was it received?

Dave:  "I'm not hungry."  In his defense he had let me know he'd already eaten before I began my culinary adventure.

Big guy:  "Awesome, mom!!!"  He took his plate back to his bedroom.

Little guy:  Well, he wasn't actually home.  I'd told him to be home by now, but he "forgot".  So, I texted him a photo of the meal.  "Meanie!"

Me:  These days I'm only eating raw veggies and such, so I'm not eating it either.

I'm still happy because in my heart I know I totally rocked it as a mom tonight...regardless of the meal's reception and whether or not we actually had a sit down dinner.  Yup, yay me!

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
