There's No Cooked Food Here! What Do I Do??

My sister recently left to return to school. I was really excited about her leaving. This is my first time being without her since her birth, 2 months before my 3rd birthday. I'm not really sure what to do with myself. It's the little things really. Like when I get home from the store at night and she calls down to me and waves from the window.

And the other morning when I got hungry...

I'm usually a Cheerios kind of girl because that's about as far as my culinary expertise can carry me. I ran out of Cheerios. Usually my sister has her Wheaties in there but my mom stopped buying them since she's been gone. I opened the fridge to find eggs. I didn't know what to do so I did the only thing I thought of.

I called my mom.

Momma: Yes?
Me: I don't have any Cheerios left and it's too early to make mac and cheese.
Momma: I told you there were eggs in the fridge.
Me: I know. I see them.
Momma: So make them.
Me: ........
Momma: Please tell me you're joking...

I don't know how to make eggs. I can hard boil them but that takes so much time. With the timer, and then waiting for them to cool, and then the peeling. I never peel them right either! I take most of the egg off with the shell and that's too much work for one little egg! I just can't be bothered. My sister always made my eggs for me. She made them so fluffy. She put cheese in them too if she was in a good mood. She also made me toast and buttered it perfectly.

I could probably make myself some toast but I never give the butter enough time to warm up. It's always too hard when I put it on and it just rips the toast. It's so sad.

What did I do?

I did what anyone would do.

I put on my shoes and took a stroll down the block to Dunkin Donuts.

Haha, I love this. Truth be told, I would probably have done the same thing!

I can't make cooked eggs either. When I went away to school & my parents were there i was like...Ah crap, thankfully there was a Wendy's in the campus hall. hehe

I'm not a huge fan of cooking but with a family it's kind of expected. I keep it simple tho. When in doubt, DD is a good alternative. Starbux too. They have pumpkin scones now and they are to die for ;)

Wow. I almost wish I didn't know how to cook. Maybe I would lose some more weight! (Not likely.) You may need the Joy of Cooking 101.

Ahh I bet if you find your inner Julia Child you will be bypassing all of us in the culinary arts soon - -oh and I only cook to survive and I am lucky enough to be married to a man that only lives to eat - so its win win - I may be able to cook but I don't enjoy it.

Here's to Dunkin Donuts everywhere.

Your sister sounds like a winner!! What a sweetie making you eggs for breakfast. Crack one open in a pan with a little oil. You will be fine. If not, you only wasted an egg. No biggie!!

You did the right thing.

Eggs can be tricky. And Dunkin Donuts makes a mean muffin . . .
