A Thing I Never Thought I'd Do

I never thought that I would buy frozen French fries in place of making real potatoes. Real cut up potatoes with oregano, basil, Cheyenne pepper, lemon pepper, and a little garlic salt fried up in extra virgin olive oil taste so much better than frozen French fries. Not only did I replace real potatoes with fake potatoes, I also never thought I would be excited that for the first time in a really long time I didn’t have to fight with the girls to get them to eat their dinner. A simple and fairly bland dinner of ham, French fries, and green smoothies. I was actually excited that they ate the fries so well and I didn’t have to spend my meal time helping Tryn count how many bites she had left, threatening, bribing, or tricking anyone into eating food. I never thought I would be so glad to have gotten the unhealthy option. Ah, life with little people.
