The Empty Nest Comes Home To Roost

Since The Girl left for college and The Boy now has gainful employment, Hubster and I are experiencing somewhat of a vacated abode most evenings.

Hubster is not a fan.

Mostly because I, in my infinite wisdom, cannot see making a big dinner for only two people. Why thaw out chicken or chops or hamburger or anything else when I can just as easily scramble a couple of eggs and cook up a few frozen sausages, pop in some bread for toast and pour some juice? It's a meal in minutes!

But it's become our meal of choice too many times here lately.

So tonight Hubster has headed me off at the pass. He's already thawed out chops in anticipation of my arrival at home. Oh, he's a sly one, he is.

And a hungry one, too.

I sort of feel the same way most of the time... so I started freezing 2 or 3 porkchops, 2 or 3 pieces of chicken, 1 lb of hamburger, etc. so I don't have to cook anymore than I HAVE to. Some days that works... and some days it's green eggs and ham!!! LOL
