Nervous Breakdown?


Why I am having a nervous breakdown now, 14 months after the second great breakdown should've occurred (9 months after the first one did occur), I don't really know. I think it has to do with this list:

Panini sandwiches and roasted red pepper and tomato soup.

Tortellini with prosciutto and a creamy pesto sauce, homemade bread, chocolate and peanut butter brownies.

Homemade chicken pot pie.

From scratch chicken tortilla soup and honey cornbread muffins.

Bacon, egg & cheese biscuits--with homemade biscuits and eggs freshly gathered from the mean chickens, just short of butchering the four-H pig down the street for bacon.

Why does this send me into a nervous breakdown? Because I spent a lot of time and effort on these meals, only to have my children inform me that they "aren't hungry."

I would like to move in with some people who REALLY appreciate my efforts.

Last night we had KRAFT macaroni and cheese. Everyone ate it.

Oh Emily, I LOVE your cooking. I don't even like Chicken pot Pie and I will eat yours EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. It is so SO good. Invite me to dinner and lets feed the kids pancakes.

Or better yet, lets get babysitters and go out to dinner.

What is wrong with your cooking? My girls think I should start a restaurant with what I make for dinner. Of course what I make is never from scratch and probably mostly out of a can and a box.

WE would appreciate your cooking.

Maybe you can come to visit and your girls can partake in Auntie Em's restaurant.

Count us in. We'll be there for dinner tomorrow. How does 6:30 sound?

I do a little food yoga ... I cook for myself, not for these ungrateful little nincompoops (this includes my husband). I cook for myself ....

I can see you are getting this local thing down - slaughtering the neighbors pig. That's good. A bit extreme, but good.

Will you teach me how to make chicken pot pie? I love it as much as I do Kraft and Macaroni and Cheese.
