Tonight I find myself in wind down mode...for two months or what seems like an eternity, my girls have been practicing for Footloose the Musical....many nights, many hours, and many many trips to school with dinner. Once or twice I cooked and took food to them, but most of the time it was fast food. Isn't it amazing how fast food can seem like a treat, until you eat it all the time and then...YUCK!
Today was the last show. I've seen the play 5 times in 5 days and I am more than ready for a break, a nap, and did I mention....HOME COOKED FOOD! Tonight I made a simple thrown together recipe I call rice stuff for lack of a better name...celery, hamburger, rice, chicken noodle soup, cream of mushroom soup, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Sounds terrible I know, but tastes terrific! It's one of the few all-in-one-pan foods my son will eat. He looked hesitantly in the pan and announced, "Oh! I like that!" Yes son, I know you do!
So...the thrown together recipe, canned green beans, and a glass of milk. In a real glass. Without a lid...or a straw. Nothing has ever tasted more delicious!
