According to Lay-la: One spoonful is a snack but two is a meal.
I hit rock bottom on Friday- actually it was Saturday morning when I looked around my kitchen and realised all I had to eat were Tootsie Rolls, Mustard and Peanut Butter. Wednesday night when I got home from class I had a handful of chocolate chips as my dinner. Thursday night when I got home at 8:00pm I had a handful of Tootsie Rolls. Friday as I was studying for my test and working on an assignment I had two spoonfuls of peanut butter. Me, the food snob. Me, the girl who doesn't eat processed food. Me, the girl who loves to cook wholesome meals from scratch is also the girl who ate the dream diet of an 8 year old last week. Enough is enough. I would have been better off with a can of soup or Kraft Dinner.
So enough is enough, it's time I get cooking. I don't really have time too but I'm sure I can throw together something that would have more substance then brown chewy mystery sweets (Mmmm Tootsie Rolls- who here LOVES Tootsie Rolls?) wrapped in sticky wax paper.
I have a slow cooker but I'm scared to use it- afraid I'll come home to a burnt down condo. Also, some days I don't get home for 12-14 hours. Is it possible that a slow cooker might be able to work with that length of time?
I don't like to buy frozen pre-made dinners from the store, I would rather make it myself (which I'm not doing right now).
I want to make things that are low maintenance, tasty and healthy. Come along creative people- what are your suggestions? Creations? Share!
Anyone want to come over and be my Stepford Wife?
