What is your go to meal when you just can think of anything to cook/eat? For me it is cereal. Really. Sometimes, nothing appeals to me but a big bowl of cereal. It doesn’t matter what type of cereal it is, as long as it’s in the cabinet I’ll eat it. It doesn’t matter if it’s Fruit Loops or Special K, although the Special K makes me feel like I’m more adult.
Of course, when the kids were little I wanted to model better eating habits so I tried to cook as much as possible, even on the days when I didn’t want to eat. On those days, I went with kid friendly meals like eggs, pancakes, mac and cheese, and hot dogs.
Now, I have one kid doesn’t like boxed mac & cheese, one kid who won’t eat eggs and another kid who is suspicious of hot dogs. So, now on the nights when I don’t feel like cooking or eating much of anything I feel free to turn the kids loose on leftovers/sandwiches and I make myself a nice big bowl of cereal.
Even the kids sometimes go with just a bowl (or 3) of cereal or oatmeal. Although, we try not to do that too often, but sometimes after a really tough day nothing is better. I think it is the fact there is hardly any clean up.
