Is There a Recipe for That?

Lately we've been so busy that I've hardly had a chance to breathe. Running from one thing to another, to meeting with contractors, to the dentist, to to to. It's been a month this week and it's not really over yet. I realized that I had not gone to the grocery store since October 31.

Two full weeks of only hitting the store when we were out of bread or milk. (Or, realistically, coffee and cream. Priorities, people.) Yep. Mom of the year, with a side of Nutritionist of the year. Luckily, I had a back log in the freezer and some of those days we've been able to eat well anyway. The other days? Yeah, I totally have blown the "fast food once a month" rule that I had. What? There are not many other options when you're staying in a hotel and can't eat until after football practice is over at 8.


Today, I had e.x.a.c.t.l.y. one hour to run to the store. With my lists for several stores a mile long for each one, I had to decide which store to go to. I figured that the biggest bang for my buck would be Target since they have a decent food section. And I could get the blush that I ran out of 3 weeks ago. Ahem.

Headless Dad had stopped by the house for lunch and was on his way out when I was getting ready to leave for the store.

Me: Is there anything you want for dinner or just to have around?

HD: Food.

Me: Duh. Anything specific?

HD: Something good.

Me: ????

Me: OK, what would you like for dinner?

HD: I Don't Know

So I have a question for you. Do you have a recipe for I Don't Know? because every time I'm going to the store every one in this household asks for it and I can't seem to come up with a recipe for it and since it's in such high demand I thought I would ask you, my wonderful internet pals, if you can point me in the right direction.

Can you help a girl out?

My go-to meal is pasta. Throw together a salad, garlic bread, pasta and meatballs (I cheat--I buy frozen meatballs.)

No there is not a recipe for that but when they don't like what you make you can make sure and tell them that this is what "I don't know looks like!"

Yum, I love pasta like Margaret said, and I think Debby has the PERFECT response if you get any guff for WHATEVER you make to fill the bill of "I don't know."

It's in isle four. Of that one store. You know the, food store.

It's shiny. Maybe. Possibly comes in a box.
