She Had A Dream

I noticed this odd assortment of food items when I walked into the kitchen, after the rest of the family had eaten gourmet mac-n-cheese for lunch. Gourmet means somebody other than me made lunch. My Amazing Grace was just ready to devour her own gourmet lunch. I shuddered a little when I spotted the can of peas and carrots, something I would NEVER buy nor eat. She enthusiastically explained her creation.

"Mom, I had this dream I was cooking and when I woke up I was just CRAAAAAAAAVING this meal. I dreamed all the ingredients, so all day I could hardly wait to make this meal because I was CRAAAAAAAVING it."

She listed the ingredients:
whole wheat pasta, a can or peas and carrots, tomato paste, seasonings and Parmesan cheese.
After a few bites, she realized her dream recipe should not be judged by the color of the ingredients, but by the contents' character.

EEWWWWWW! I double-dog dare you to take a bite!!!!!

Heroically, she tried to down a few bites.
After all, "waste not want not."

We want not.
That wasn't a dream, that was a nightmare.
Amazing Grace's final comment, "But, Maw-uh-awM, I don't know what happened. It was so good in my dream!"

I wonder if this is how Rachel Ray got her start.

  1. Hey, I wanted you to know I will be praying for you on Monday. You have been coming to mind quite often and I know it is because God wants me to remember you in my prayers. I praise Him that He is faithful to remind me. My brain is so forgetful these days. I love you, and want you to know that you have been a big influence in my life. I always loved watching your heart for people, your servants attitude, how you made much out of little, and how you loved and took care of your kiddos. I'm anxious to hear how everything went. Love you!
