My My, What Sparkly Porridge You Have

Mealtime Simplicity

  I like to kiss my meals. Yup. Keep it simple stupid. That’s my motto. If I could just take a meal pill and forgo a full fledged dinner, I would.   Sadly pills larger than a baby aspirin make me gag. Plus I’m guessing my kids wouldn’t be thrilled with this new meal pill plan anyway.   The fact remains, I have to feed my family. They’re needy like that.

It’ll fill you up. Lower your cholesterol..blah, blah, blah…” he lectures. So, I’ve been a good Little Miss Muffet, eating what I’ve been given. Oh wait, Miss Muffet ate curds and whey, not porridge. Whatever. Equally disgusting. Yesterday, I drew the line when Papa Bear asked, “So? How is it?” “Fine” I muttered, “but I could do without the sparkly bits. What are those anyway?” “Oh ya. I tried to scoop out as much as I could.” Papa Bear explained. He had added the baggie of “Reindeer Food” (oats mixed with red, green and silver craft sparkles) Avery and I had made to[…]
