Every day between 3:30 and 4:00 pm, my husband and I have the same conversation.
Hubby: “Are you ready to have the conversation?”
Me: “I guess? Are you?”
Hubby: “Yeah. So, what do you feel like for dinner?”
Me: “I don’t know. What do you feel like?”
Hubby: “I don’t care? You get to choose because I decided what we were having last night.”
Me: “No, that was me deciding last night. You have to choose.”
Hubby: “How about cereal night?”
Me: “No, that’s what we did last night.”
And so on and so forth. And actually the speaking parts of the conversation are interchangeable based who placed the phone call.
It’s very frustrating that I can plan parties, weddings, holidays; almost any event you can think of, but I have trouble putting together a simple family meal plan week to week. In fact, if I were to ever win the lottery, the first thing I would do is hire a professional cook to plan and prepare my family’s meals.
I can make decisions all day long about other aspects of life but trying to decide what to have for dinner each night just about makes my head explode. So, that’s where you guys come in. Help keep my head from exploding by sending me your favorite dinner ideas. Remember to keep them simple, because after I work at the office all day, the last thing I want to do is come home and try to put together a complicated meal.
I know my family will be appreciative of any ideas you may have, because they’re really getting tired of cereal night.
