Please cook for your family!

JUST A REMINDER THAT YOUR FAMILY NEEDS YOU
When we were at a cabin recently on our family vacation I happened to look at the microwave as I was steaming veggies. You know you can buy them right in the steam-able package now? There is no excuse to not "EAT GET YOUR VEGGIES!"
Have you ever used one of these? Do you know what it is?
Well, the funny thing was, as we had not bought a microwave in a few years, and when I saw this one it made me gasp:
A chicken nuggets button?

Now please don't take this the wrong way, if you are a short-cut cook, more power to ya! if you are a "we'll just-doctor-this-up-cook, amen to that!"  But whatever you do, don't hand your kids chicken nuggets, or pizza pockets or have them get them from the freezer themselves, and reheat them in this blasted machine!


Blame the schools for the unhealthy cafeteria food...yeah, it's all their fault. NOT

Give them real food, food you have prepared with love and served to them from your own hand. Your family needs you. I don't care if you are male or female, families are families.


COOK FOR THOSE YOU LOVE
GO AHEAD, TIE ONE ON and SHOW THEM THEY COUNT!
PS Dad was not injured or mashed in the above photo by Mom. Just wanted to clarify. She may want to pummel him at times, but he was never mashed!

Signed affectionately,
Your Innkeeper at The Claiborne House B&B (who is off her soapbox now "Just say NO to chicken nuggets! PLEASE")
