Some days I feel frumpy, helplessly disorganized and one key ingredient short of a full recipe. On particular occassions like these, I resort to Carnival Foods. My friends laugh and know that means chili dogs or burgers on the grill. Something quick - it's better than heating up a ghastly frozen dinner, yet not the extreme gourmet 5 course meal that I often attempt. It's nice because I get to employ my husbands expert grilling skills. Last night was chili dogs, tonight is burgers. Throw some tortilla chips with gourmet salsa on the side and you have a meal that's not too shabby.
I have loads of coupons to clip and organize, the clean laundry to fold is clearly competing with Mt. Everest, we're almost out of dish detergent and I have no butter - which, seriously - can a household survive without butter?! When I begin to look around me, I need to remind myself that everything is relative.
I did have tremendous success with my BBQ Chicken Nachos and Monte Cristos earlier in the week! I hope to have more to share when I can dig out of my frumpy state. Talk to you later. : )
