Now I admit, having been raised in a family that owned it’s own restaurant, that I am not the best cook. Sure, I can whip up some mean macaroni and cheese or a decent peanut butter & jelly sandwich from time to time, but for the most part, I was not blessed in the culinary arts. With that in mind, I have found that through the years I can rely on one primary food group to which I can run to whenever I need to prepare dinner for my brood. And that food group is “Hamburger Helper”.
Oh…you go ahead and laugh. But my kids think it’s the greatest dinner on the earth! (Ok…maybe not THE greatest dinner. That would be pizza. But it’s the greatest dinner on the earth that Daddy can fix and it’s edible!). So here is how it’s done…
So now everyone can stop thinkin’ that I can’t cook…because it’s obvious by the look on these two healthy kids’ faces that Daddy knows how to whip up some good eats from time to time. And trust me…it’s taken me YEARS to get THIS meal down! Next up…meatloaf! Should be ready to go in …oh… about 12 years!
Additional note: No children were harmed in the making of this blog. All participants participated on their own accord and no food was regurgitated following this particular meal. However I CAN’t speak for any subsequent meals that might have not been as good as this one. An animal WAS injured in the making of this story however I was not there at the time so I do not consider myself responsible and I am hoping that no suffering was incurred. Any angst over the suffering of said animal should be taken up with PETA or some other animal support group. I am simply a man with 2 mouths to feed. And they feed often.
