In a Rut

What's for dinner? It's 10:00 and I haven't a clue. I was hoping y'all could give me some suggestions - or better yet, just pop on over here with a hot meal? Yea, I didn't think so. Sigh.
I am just plumb out of ideas. In a rut. I get into those on occassion. I love to cook, but gosh darn it - sometimes I sure do get tired of always feeding people!

I know DH would do it if I didn't. He's a good cook and mighty handy in the kitchen, but when he works 7 days a week and puts in 80 hours a week (more in the summer) I just can't bring myself to complain that I am too tired to cook - or I just don't want to. He deserves a good hot homecooked meal when he drags in.

Gosh, I feel guilty for griping. I've got a freezer full of beef and enough food in my pantry to feed us for a good long while. We've got a good roof over our heads and warm beds to sleep in at night. DH is employed and we're all healthy. The kids are safe and we've had rain. And DH and I are head over heels in love with each other after being together for almost 25 years.

Truth is, I am spoiled. I have been blessed to get to stay home and raise the kids and tend to the house. So on days like today, I need to remember that I don't need to complain and my cup runneth over with blessings.

I will say that I am not completely worthless - I did stumble out of bed and enjoy DH's company whilst I made biscuits and bacon and gravy for breakfast at 5:30 this morning.

So that is my whine for the day. It could be worse - the wind could be blowing.

Love,

Dirt Road Scrapper who is thankful that this post was the good swift kick in the pants she needed and is off to the kitchen to whip up a feast fit for a king! (Well - not really, but it'll taste good anyway)

*Sigh* we all get in ruts I think. I have felt bad, because I've been so pooped when I get home, that John is lucky to get anything edible. My cooking has defiantly slacked here lately, I've run out of ideas and energy. Seems like all we eat is spagetti and burritos. Poor guy.

Days like that for me are: nacho nights, or baked potatoes bar etc. Ds's friends love to come eat on them - all the fixings are there - they just have to pile them on. It's fairly simple, and not a whole bunch to clean up. Sometimes it really gets rid of all the leftovers.
PS I'll trade ya' - I am still down for the count, you rest for me and I'll cook for you!

It's ok! We all have those days and mine come about every other day. We just get up and take it on and do what we have to do don't we? Blessings and here is to an attitude of thanksgiving and happiness! (I am talking to myself!) ha. Wish I was at the end of a dirt road. Amy
