I believe in food.
I mean… I really do love food.
But there is something about having to get dinner on the table every night that takes my food level involvement to a point of saturation.
And that doesn’t include breakfast, lunch, and in-between snacks.
I know what some of you are thinking: meal planning is the answer to all my woes. I’ve done that too, and let me tell you, after awhile… even the planning can get monotonous.
Yes. I want to feed my family well.
Yes. I want to keep them showing up to the table in anticipation of what’s-for-dinner.
Yes. I want to give the people I love food to eat that’s good to them and good for them.
But can I just say what I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking? Mealtime can be an ongoing, overwhelming and inescapable responsibility.
