Occasionally I’m so exhausted after a long day that for dinner, we eat very simply.
Tonight we ate hamburgers seasoned with Tastefully Simple Onion Onion (right now, totally obsessed with these easy spices) and green beans with their Garlic Garlic. Extremely easy and fast.
Work greeted me early. From the moment I arrived until the minute I went home I was running. After work I picked the baby up from the sitter and sat through my daughter’s super cute fifth grade play. By the time we hit the door, the baby needed nursed, dinner needed cooked, and I wanted to cry looking at the state my apartment was left. What a mess.
I wanted to cry. Sometimes I get very overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. I’m a single mom to a preteen and a baby. Laundry, dishes, all meals for all of us (baby food I make as well) cleaning, shopping, work, blog, direct sales that is a hobby, more cleaning, dating…no wonder I’m so tired all the time. Who has energy after all that to get their hair done or do anything else fun.
For these reasons, sometimes no frills for an easy Paleo dinner is the only way to go.
Oh, and due to being overwhelmed today, exhausted, sleep deprived, and getting sick again, I cheated. I wanted M&M’s and a spoonful of Trader Joe’s cookie butter that somehow survived in my cabinet, so I ate them.
On a different note, the baby has discovered that he can stick his fingers up his nose. His little nostrils are his new favorite toy. The things that amuse babies!
Thanks for letting me yet again vent!
