Julia I ain't

My cooking mojo appears to have left me forever once
those twins came back from the hospital with me.

Last night as I wandered the kitchen aimlessly I casually
mentioned to the Bunny,

'you kids are going to have to start cooking for yourselves'

'seriously?'

'yep! I'm done - all out of ideas'

'I got two words for you Mommy. Cereal and milk!'

I have those same feelings almost daily. We eat stir fry about 4 nights a week because I can't think of anything else.

BTW, every time you leave me a comment, it gets me right in the heart. I find you so - I don't know - comforting. Your experiences give me so much hope. B (and MOB) are very lucky to have you, with your open and loving heart. You're very special.

Cooking is often such a chore. I don't know why I feel like I have to produce something new and spectacular all the time. My kids would be happy eating breakfast for dinner every night!

weeknight cooking is for the birds. that's why quesadillas were invented.

(although i did make 2 cheesecakes the other night!)

i love cereal and milk! It's like my favorite snack. And I've never been one to cook.

Works for adults, too! There are nights I come home from work and just have a bowl of Cheerios.

I think you can thrive for a long time on cereal and milk! Sounds good to me.

cereal and milk are a great fall back. I've heard that Jerry Seinfeld lives on that and he's done okay for himself.

PS: I hate cooking! Baking, I'm okay with. Cooking, I hate.

Cereal and milk does constitute a complete dinner for children of any age, I think.

I came over from POTD - and I have to tell you that I held out until my boys were around fifteen/sixteen and then with the frequent non-appearances for meals and the unreasonable demands (but I don't like ... ) I gave up cooking for them altogether. My husband prefers raw food anyway (usually cheese sandwiches, but there's no cooking involved) and I'd taught them to cook, so I drew the line.

Now, I'll cook when they come home, sometimes, and they cook for me on high days and holidays. Life is good. LOL!

So, no, according to my philosophy, you are not a bad mother. ;)

After many more years of cooking meals than you, I am sick and tired of it. I only like to cook for company - when I want to have company. I got a post of the day too. I've visited everyone and now I'm ready for bed. Enjoyed your post. (I eat, or used to eat, cereal and milk a lot.) - Jeanne in Oregon
