How To Solve A Lame-o Dinner Situation

by Courtney on June 9, 2011

Since I’ve still been too stubborn to turn on the second AC, I spent the majority of my afternoon catching up on some blog-related to-do’s in the bedroom, since we do have that AC blasting.

And because it was so warm in the rest of the house, I decided to allow Code-man to come in and keep me company (usually the bedroom is off-limits for this reason). At first, all he wanted was attention…

Then we had a bit of a staring contest…but I won.

So he got all flustered on me.

and spent a good half hour hiding under the bed. Talk about a sore loser.

Eventually, he came to his senses and came back up to join me.

And the two of us had some good ‘ol QT together.

He’s a special one, I’ll tell ya…

Eventually it was time to make something for dinner. Unfortunately, the dinner situation in our house is pretty lame-o right now. I’m trying not to do any grocery shopping this week, since we had so much last week, but our supply is slowly starting to dwindle.

I ended up making the same wrap that I made on Monday,

along with some extra tomato and cucumber slices, and a few lonely pretzels from the bottom of the bag.

Nothing too exciting, but it was still pretty good.

Since Jay and I had to run out and take care of a few errands this evening, my one saving grace for the night was that I was able to convince him to stop for some dessert from my favorite ice cream place.

Only tonight, I totally switched up my order and went with sherbet instead.

For some reason, sherbet had been on my my brain all afternoon, and I can honestly say that this is the best sherbet I have ever tasted. Hands down. I got a mix of their homemade raspberry and watermelon sherbets, which were both so light and refreshing, with the perfect amount of sweet and tart to them.

My serving also came topped with so many rainbow sprinkles that I actually had to give some away to Jay.

They were obviously more than generous tonight, but I sure wasn’t complaining. Everything’s always better with rainbow sprinkles. Smile

And that, my friends, is how to solve a lame-o dinner situation!

Question for the Evening:

What’s the last lame-o meal you had???

Were you able to solve it/fix it?

My dinner for the last two nights has been pretty lame-o. I have really only wanted a sweet potato and sauteed mushrooms. That’s it. I have had to make up for it with a huge after dinner snack.

I just had a meal of carrots and hummus and a tortilla on the side. Talk about lame!! I fixed it with a perfectly ripe peach :)

I love Cody. I’ve never seen his fierce side before!

Well, I can tell you dinner tonight wasn’t lame – cake batter ice cream with graham cracker crumbs and rainbow sprinkles. :) Now I’m craving vegetables!

lame-o: saltines and ginger ale.
BUT that’s because i ate something that has not been sitting well with my stomach, so i guess you could say it’s wonderful under the circumstances.

EVERYTHING is better with sprinkles. My last lame-o meal was lunch today.. a granola bar. Was out shopping and didn’t feel like shelling out for a meal.

I love the picture of Cody where he’s opening his mouth wide! And I agree – EVERYTHING is better with rainbow sprinkles :)

Dessert makes any situation better. I’m glad we’re on the same page…although I can’t say the same about sherbet!!

Grilled cheese sandwiches, and to fix it I added avocado and tomato and a side spinach salad :) It did the trick!

I had a totally lame-o dinner the other night consisting of Cheerios and almond milk. Totally unrelated, but how do you get your wraps to stay together like that and look so perfect? Mine are always a disaster with stuff falling out everywhere, lol.

lol…my husband is the same way and always asks me to wrap his for him too! I don’t know, I guess I just wrap it really tight and make sure to tuck in the corners really well?

Sadly, my last lame-o dinner stemmed from an awesome-o dinner! The leftovers a few days later of homemade BBQ chicken pizza weren’t half as good as they were the day of (or even the next day) but man I just HATE tossing food in the trashcan.
