What am I going to make for dinner?
Pasta. No. We had pasta last night. I wonder how much is left downstairs. I bet I need to restock.
No-you cannot have a snack. I am just about to make dinner. Okay. One tomato. But that's it. No, wait let me wash it first.
Okay. Is there any chicken left in the freezer? What can I make with canned chicken. Nothing that John likes. Life would be so much easier if he wasn't so picky. It's like 100 degrees. We can't have soup.
Shut the door!
Stupid flies. I swear they wait for the door to open. Did we really use that many dishes today? Maybe I should wash them before I make dinner. Dishwasher is still full. But if I ask the girls to come clear it right now, they will be in the way.
We have lots of beans. I should make something with beans. Beans and rice. John will have to deal. I wonder if I can find a new recipe online. Ehh. I'll just make something up. Should I make cornbread?
Eric, do you stink? You do, don't you. Go get me a diaper. No kicking! You don't kick mommy!
Now the living room stinks. Two cans of beans. A can of tomato sauce. Is that it? Hmm. Maybe I should have made cornbread. I could make biscuits. No. The food processor is in the sink. Not washing that right now. Oh, well. I wonder if there is a way to make better rice.
I should put some brown sugar in there. I wonder if the cajun seasoning will clash with the barbeque sauce. What is in cajun seasoning anyway?
Shut the fridge please. No. You don't need any cheese right now. Shut the fridge.
We are having beans and rice. You like it.
Put it down! No! Put it down.
Everyone out of the kitchen! Out! Now! I will call you when it is time to eat!
Sigh. I should really fold the laundry. I'll have to do that tonight. Onions! I forgot. Garlic too. Okay. Rice is done. Beans are done.
Guys. Come set the table. No, just set the table. If you can't sing and set at the same time, then don't sing. What did I just say?
