My brain needs a break, so I'm playing along with the ever-optimistic Mrs. 4444
damn I love this movie
OK. So my pantry sucks. Just ask my kids.
You can ask my babysitter, too.
She feeds my kids dinner 3 nights a week
I need to do something about my work schedule
My pantry contains 17 boxes of Barilla pasta
9 cans of Goya Black Bean Soup
4 boxes of Silver Palate Oatmeal
6 cans of Progresso Chickarina
3 packages of Oreos
2 packages of Chips Ahoy Chunky
the kids have to eat something, right?
yes, adrienne, that is Tostitos Salsa Con Queso
made with real cheese
I regularly have a houseful
of 13 year old smelly boys
that real cheese just makes those boys smell
the good new is I'm married to a chef
who occasionally brings home super special amazing things
an ounce of saffron in a beautiful box
that's a lot of saffron
I think back in the day you could get 3 wives and a camel
2 lbs of salted anchovies
what the fuck am i gonna do with
2 lbs of salted anchovies?
spread it on the oreos?
but I do love the can
this, though, is my favorite pantry item
one of the few things I make that my kids actually eat
is bread salad
that basil olive oil on bread salad
in the middle of winter
is like a swoon inducing whiff of summer
just ask Ty
who walked around in said swoon last Christmas break
with his nose pressed to the glob of homemade play dough
that he oh-so-industriously made
one morning while I was sleeping in
mmmm.... mommy smell the playdough I made...
it smells like basil from the garden
it sure did
