Monday is Mom's Day Off. Here's What the 11-Year Old Made
Monday night is Mom’s Night Off. Each Monday has a different cook in charge of dinner starting with the first Monday of the Monday and continuing through the next month: 1stMonday is Lieve (9-years-old), 2ndis Valerie (11-years-old), 3rdis Audrey (13-years-old), and 4this Brian (59-years-old). I am the end of month proof that cooking skill doesn’t always improve with age.
At 7:00 Valerie decided to put down the cell-phone and make dinner. Because there wasn’t a lot of preplanning, this was going the farm animals safe and be vegetarian. Whole-wheat pasta, cream sauce, and mushrooms were going to be the main course, and watermelon was the fruity salad or dessert, depending on when a person decided to eat theirs.
Spent half the time talking about Valerie’s project presentation on Hadrian’s Wall and the other half hearing Audrey joke about her disastrous study session over at a friend’s house with her Tiger Dad.
My wife wasn’t feeling well, so for breakfast I heated up left over friend rice and shoveled in their little thermoses for lunch and then added in a Tupperware container of left-over watermelon. Also included a mini-baggie of 8 M&Ms apiece because I had eaten the rest of them.
