Admission #1

So yesterday over coffee, I talked of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, buying organic and staying as far away as possible from those overly processed foods, like Pop-tarts.  Then today.  

I stayed up too late last night watching "Downton Abbey" episodes and therefore lacked the energy to be the mom I wanted to be today.  So, for breakfast, the girls had a Clif bar, a banana, and milk, while I sneaked a rainbow chip cupcake between cups of coffee.  

Lunch was probably going to be cheese, processed crackers, and some token raisins and strawberries to make me feel like I was providing a nutritious meal.  Instead, my hubby called minutes before I would have whipped up the delicious home-made meal described above, and said he was bringing us the left-overs from the lunch he provided for his volunteers.  YAH!  But, he lives in the world of fast-food lunches.  So, we had pepperoni and sausage pizza, bread sticks, cinnamon sticks, and a bowl of strawberries was set on the table.  The girls had to have some strong encouragement to eat even one strawberry:  "You have to eat your strawberry before you can get down."  

Supper holds little hope since we only have one hour to fix food, eat, get dressed and get to church.  There's always tomorrow!
