Seriously, it can't be exciting every night

I've received some very kind words about my blog and the high quality of the dishes I proudly display. I'm always so flattered when they arrive! And I've had folks look at the site and say things like, "Oh, I don't know how you make all those fancy things. How do you find the time and inspiration?"

I always tell folks that it helps that a) food is my #1 hobby and b) I have no children yet! But more importantly I tell them that not every night is something new and exciting and "fancy." And just to prove that I'm not just "being modest" or flat our lying, here's what my darling foodie husband and I ate this past Monday night on a day off. Keep in mind, I had all day to prepare this masterpiece...



Yup, it's mac n' cheese from the blue box, guppy shaped fish nuggets I heated in the toaster oven, and a random salad. And we ate and enjoyed every bite with no shame!

(Note that this post is labeled as both "Less than Gourmet" which is obvious, and also "Not Cooking Related" because cooking had nothing to do with this meal! Ha!)

Those fish are so cute! And let me tell you... my husband and my child would be so excited if I served a meal like this!

HAHAHA! That looks yummy to me! No shame in that and I agree with Amanda, those fish nuggets are super cute! :)

Who cares if you're not gourmet every night. I think you're excellent anyway - and I just gave you an award for being so excellent!

hey, we ate mac and cheese from the box just the other day! I love that you ate it with an exquisite-looking salad though :)
