Did I ever tell you about the time when my freezer door accidentally was left open? It was a sad day, not only because my once frozen food had thawed and liquified into a putrid, vomitous puddle, but also because some of that food was in the form of actual meals that I had prepared in advance for days when my schedule would be too hectic to prepare a decent dinner.
In advance! Advanced planning! Ruined!
It was a painful loss.
You see, I'm not always the best meal planner. There are days when 5:00 arrives and I'm surprised, yet again, that it's nearly dinner, that I have children, and that I'm
somehow responsible for feeding dinner to those children. WHY must this cycle keep happening? Can't a meal just appear?
Well, quite fortunately, it can.
Thank you, Chinese take out. Seriously, you saved me last week on a day when advanced meal planning -- or any cooking for that matter -- was simply not happening.
#TransparentTuesday. Life is real, my dear friends. Let's not believe otherwise.
