My Mother's Daughter
Today, I am proud to say I have acquired "amazing mom status" as I was able to make a completely yummy dinner out of the nothing that was staring at me from the cupboards. Two days away from payday is always tricky because obvious meals are sometimes sparse and there's no money for dining out, but tonight I found chicken in the freezer, and tucked away in the farthest reaches of the pantry were the ingredients for taco soup and corn bread. Who cares that it's ninety freaking degrees outside and the family broke a sweat while eating. The fact is, I, MaryBeth, Linda Dillingham Navarro's daughter, am amazing.
Just don't ask what's for dinner tomorrow night because I'm pretty sure there's nothing to eat in the cupboards.
