The easy way out?

Sometimes I feel like I'm taking the easy way out. Not often, but for a moment today, I felt it. I made my daughter lunch, and with the lack of exciting grocery items in my pantry and fridge, I opted for a Gerber Graduates meal. You know the kind. The ones that you microwave for 30 seconds? This one was chicken, vegetables and rice. It's one of the newer, healthier versions, and she loves it, so why do I feel like I cheated her out of something? It didn't take long to make, and I knew she needed to eat. It's past lunchtime, after all, but we have a pretty flexible schedule during the day. It all depends on what time she wakes up, but that's a whole other post!

Anyway, it's after 1PM, it's time for lunch, so I heat up a piece of leftover pizza for myself (eh) and pop this baby in the microwave for her. She literally just ate the whole thing, with my help, and sits slurping the sauce as I type this, so I guess it was a hit. I should thank Gerber for helping me give her a nutritious meal once in a while, but instead I kind of feel like they're smirking at me. Ah, well. I saved $ on your products using coupons, so take that! 

And now, on to figuring out what's for dinner. I'm so not feeling domestic this week. I should have thrown something in the crock*pot already, but I skipped it. I think I'll be calling on Mr. Perdue for tonight's meal, and he can't smirk at me, because we're already in a BFF relationship with one another!

Mangia! Eat and enjoy!
