Alright, you already know I am a Theta Mom. I am the real deal. When it comes to the reality of motherhood, I’m ready to dish the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is the true essence of a Theta Mom.
So, keeping this blog truly authentic, if you haven’t read in a previous post, I’ll tell you again that I hate to cook. In fact, I loathe cooking.
I do it because if I don’t, we die. It’s really that simple.
When I think of the “perfect” mother, June Cleaver comes to mind. I have this fixed image of her in the kitchen where she spent most of her time. Fresh baked cookies coming out of the oven daily; preparing all home cooked meals with a smile on her face… Hey, she was a “good” mother, so naturally she was a good cook, right?
I am what you would call a slow cooker. I like to add ingredients to one pot and call it a day. Yes ladies, I prefer to “cut and dump.”
Rachel Ray made a career out of making 30 Minute Meals. I am still convinced one day I will have my own cooking show called Cut and Dump for mothers exactly like me. Cut open the package and just dump it in. Yes, dinner is now served.
So, you can imagine my sheer happiness when I met Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. This is the ultimate cut and dump. A meal in a box, but the bonus is that my kids absolutely love it.
But Thetas, it gets even better…
I recently discovered that Kraft came out with self-serving portions called Easy Mac. Yes, this is one slice of heaven for me!
Just add water.
Microwave: 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
Kraft, bless you.
