A Letter of Apology

Dear Blog,

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.



Strawberry-Banana Breakfast Milkshake

What You Need:
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 12 strawberries, hulls removed
  • 1 large banana, peeled
  • 1 handful of ice cubes
How it's Done:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree. Serve immediately. And be glad for the nourishment in your children's bellies. And plot to add greens and carrots to the next one. Mwah hah hah hah haha! ;)

*ugh* I bet by the time your in-laws leave, everyone will be feeling pretty icky from all the processed food. Hang in there and see you when you return.

Deep breaths Michelle...they'll be leaving soon..... right? :) Looking forward to your return.

Who doesn't like home cooked food??? I'm sorry your inlaws are being such pills. Come on week, hurry up so Michelle can get back to what she does best: cooking awesome food and blogging about it! Miss you :)

Hey it's your house, your rules right? Isn't that what parents told us? You are too nice, in my opinion. That smoothie looks yummy! Who wouldn't like that?

I am sorry that your in-laws don't like your homecooking. Just blow it off and enjoy their company. You can get back to your good food when they are gone.

I was so exhausted Friday I heated up some cans of Chef Boyardee to feed the daycare kiddos. They all have that lovely orange goatee afterwards (but fortunately, they all wanted seconds on raw baby carrots, so that was at least good!). We all fall off the healthy wagon, but as long as we get back up on and keep going, we're good. :) (((hugs)))
