lonely celery

It’s the day before payday.  The celery lies limp and lonely in the bottom of the fridge. There’s not much left in there to kick up a party.

Tonight we are having some pasta and black bean patties–AGAIN–and you know what, it’s going to be just fine.  Then after the kids go to bed, I will head to the store to fill up the fridge.  Six gallons of milk this week?  Or eight?  Should I meal plan?  Or should I just aimlessly wander up and down the aisles throwing food and diapers into the cart?

Regardless, I am coming home tonight with ice cream.  It’s on sale.

Some might think we eat beans because they are cheap and good for you.  But tonight we’re having beans so I can eat Bryers Peach ice cream in a very big bowl.


About onlifeandbeans

I like to make the adventure taste good by cooking tasty, wholesome food. Most of what I've learned in cooking, I've picked up from cookbooks and lots of practice. (Thank you, Fannie Farmer, for the right start. ) I so appreciate cookbooks that tell how and why to do something; that's why I do the same for my readers. I want to know what is in my food. I want my family to sit down and share a meal together. I want our food to taste good. Home-cooking takes time, but it gives back rich dividends in budget minding, good health and familial love. One meal at a time.

  1. and eat it after the kids go to sleep so that you do not have to share!

  2. Sounds yummy to me! And, you are averting sugar highs! Jun’s two cookie snack and a short power nap resulted in a 10 pm sleep time…and a frustrated/tired Mama!
