Making dinner is always a chore for me. Breakfast is easy – cereal, toast, juice, bacon. Lunch is fun, a time to be creative, even though my kids usually just want turkey sandwiches and apple slices.
But dinner, I never have any good ideas. When I do come up with something good, chances are the kids will complain about it. They’d be happy eating spaghetti every night.
What I need to do is make one truly horrible meal as a benchmark for their complaints, so they can always say, “At least it’s not as bad as what Daddy made that one night!”
I thought I had already made a few bad ones, but now I believe I’ve found something even more horrible…
An all-time dinner horror classic:
What I want to know is, was there really a time when this meal was considered “inspiring”… I wonder how many marriages ended because of this recipe.
I might not even have to make this. Just showing the picture to my kids should bring a whole new appreciation from them for my cooking.
