I'm good for two big holidays in a row (this time it would be two birthdays in one week) and then I absolutely refuse to cook for the rest of the week. Survive on leftovers- let the masses defend for themselves. I. Am. Done.
So, for dinner tonight I have offered my 13-year-old the opportunity of a lifetime: "Here is $20. Your challenge is to go to Shaw's (don't forget the Shaw's card) and come home with a healthy dinner for the whole family. And also cook it." He is so excited that he called a friend to come along. AND he's walking (it's like 10 degrees out there) so I'm saving gas and brain cells. Win-Win! Ok, maybe I don't win the "Mother of the Year" award but I'm cuddling up by the fire with a good book and waiting for my dinner. Ahhh- the luxurious life!
