Don’t forget to tune in Monday when I’ll be hosting my second Spring Has Sprung giveaway. I’ll be interviewing my friend and fellow Proverbs 31 speaker Micca Campbell about her new book An Untroubled Heart. Join us!!
I have a dilemma at my house these days.
My boys think I don’t buy “real food”.
Now, I can make as mean a meatloaf as the next gal. My pot pies win rave reviews every time. I bake cookies; whip up brownies; why I even sometimes grind my own wheat and bake bread from scratch.
So what, prey tell, is “real food”? I asked them this the other day as I was headed to the grocery store to purchase the week’s bounty.
“You know, real food. Like Curtis’ mom has, or Jake’s. They always have Doritos in the house and lots of Mountain Dew. You never buy pop.” (No, I don’t except for special occasions. That’s what good moms do; or so I thought)
“And they have huge cases of Ramen noodles from Sam’s Club around all the time. They buy gi-normous cases of pizza rolls and Sunny D and stuff. Would it kill ya to buy some Kool-aid? Geeesh….Their moms know what real food is.”
Hmmmm….. Now, I have been known to buy some of these things some of the time. I might get some pizza rolls to munch on while we watch American Idol. I guess my boys beef is that I don’t buy huge quantities so they can eat it whenever they want.
Guess that makes me a bad mom. What they don’t know is that it is a badge I wear with honor.
Now, gotta run. I am headed to speak to the sweet ladies at Peace Lutheran Church in Beavercreek, Ohio this weekend. My fam will be on their own.
Ding, ding, ding…..that means it is a special occasion!!!
I’ve already stocked the pantry with Ramen noodles and Kool-aid.
They’ll be craving my cooking when I come home!!!
Sweet Weekend Blessings,
