I have a little . . . problem . . . on my hands. My husband likes to eat fruits, vegetables and meat. He's a healthy eater. He also doesn't mind leftovers.
I, on the flip side, like to eat like a six-year-old. I like carbs, carbs, carbs and, oh yes, carbs. I could spend my days eating macaroni and cheese, tomato soup and grilled cheese, donuts, tacos, pasta . . .
Well, heck. Now I'm hungry.
And while we're on the subject, I didn't start calling leftovers "rotten over things" as a three-year-old for no good reason. I love eating leftovers cooked by other people, but I refuse to eat leftovers I've made myself. So even if that eggplant parmesan was actually quite delicious, it's a one-time only deal in my book.
This usually translates into me making my husband ham and lentil soup for supper while I eat a bowl of Rice Krispies. Because . . . six-year-old.
This isn't really a sustainable eating style. At some point, our family is going to sit down and eat one meal together: mom, pop and all the kiddos. This won't be like a Golden Corral buffet where everyone is eating something different. That just won't work.
So, help a girl out. I obviously need to expand my palette and get over my issue with leftovers. But how?
Please send help.
