Before Motherhood...

Before I became "Mom" I used to eat at restaurants that didn't have crayons or serve chocolate milk in a cup with a lid and a funky straw. The menus did not show the prices. The titles of the meals were enough to make your mouth water. You also had to have a basic understanding of Spanish/French/Italian/Japanese etc to be able to order and not sound like an ignorant American. More than one course. Complex tastes and vibrant colors. You had more options in wine than you did in actual food. It was like Food Porn.   *sigh*

Today was a "snow day" for the kids. I ate oatmeal for breakfast. Mac and Cheese for lunch AND dinner. Because thats all the wee men could agree on. Again... *sigh*

I miss Food Porn.

At least the Mac and Cheese was organic...

Some things never change my little one . Oh how I remember busting my crank in those shit hole fab shops, playing in fire and swinging hammers that weighed half as much as you did at the time so I could come home and pound the hell out of something only so tough as to be cut by your sharp tongue! Often I recall (to your kid brother!)"I aint eaten dat slop" , regardless of what I was cooking that night. Your pallet came around when I went TEXMEX. I seem to recall your favorite restaurant at the time was Mighty Taco, do you recall the last time we were there and I ordered a boretto magnifico complete with food poisoning! WOW... Good Times... I confess, I don't know a thing about Food Porn, but I can say with utter confidants, All Parents Live To Eat Shit.(the irony is sweet)And Food Snobs Starve First.

I miss spending a ridiculous amount of money on shoes instead of toys! :/
