There hasn't been as much flack over the use of homemade dressings and not having sugary lemonade available 24/7. The Mr. is settling in to eating better and not complaining about eating only what is available at home .. which sometimes means he has to do without treats (fake food). Why, 'because I said so .. (lol). Sometimes a homemaker just has to put her foot down and do what is right and best for her family. Even if that means change. I think he's noticed that our food bill is a lot less .. yet we are eating real food that is satisfying and nutritious.
Friday afternoon we were out in town; the Mr. and our grandson at the City Park ... and I was grocery shopping. Ring, ring .. my phone goes off. It's the Mr. informing me at 2:30 that he forgot company was coming over at 5 PM for dinner. Panic? No .. I just bought some fresh Alaskan Salmon from the fish market .. thawed a few steaks from our freezer and made a surf and turf dinner in no time flat. I did inform the Mr. to call the company to see if they'd come over at 6 instead of 5. All's well that ends well. Having a stocked pantry came to the rescue once again.
