Oh, how I've missed you! I think of you often and long for the yesterdays, when I could stop by and look at you, primp you, visit your pages, and speak through you. Alas, family is in town and does not appreciate home cooked foods. Therefore, I've been neglecting you, and for that, I apologize. Oh, how I miss your nourishment! Packaged taco seasoning is scary! Papa John was in my house last night with his mystery sauce. Pizza, not home-made? A travesty!
Dearest Blog, my children have not been eating well. Cold cereals loaded with sugar, macaroni and cheese at restaurants (the type from the blue box, blog), and sugary strawberry soda pop have found their ways through my children's bellies.
Now, please know as I do that this is a temporary situation. All the work we've done to get my children off of processed foods does not have to come unraveled, dear blog. One more week and we can return to nourishing, healthful, fulfilling, wholesome, home-cooked foods.
For now, while the in-laws sleep, I sneak in a healthful beverage for my babies to enjoy. I hope you will, too.
