Photo Hunt 58: Cook(ing)

by tracy on May 20, 2007

No one in this household cooks. This is not usually a problem. We can, of course, boil water for pasta and pick up veggie salads at Lifethyme, the organic store down the street. We can order in from a variety of places. The only time we feel a bit at loose ends is when we have a dinner party.

We solved the problem recently by inviting people over for cereal. Who doesn’t like cereal? Frankly, who wouldn’t rather have cereal for dinner than a big heavy roast? Anyway, we bought several brands of cereal–from Cap’n Crunch to crunchy granola–plus assorted fruits, nuts and yogurts, and a couple of different types of juice to drink.

Then we realized that we had only two bowls that weren’t cracked in half because Mouse (see above) likes to sit in them after he drinks the leftover milk. So we bought a set of six bowls.

It would have been cheaper to take everyone to a restaurant.

Oh, a cereal dinner party sounds fun! My Mommie doesn’t cook either. Except in the microwave.

My mom loves cereal for dinner — be sure to invite her next time!

We just got a new stove. Mom loves looking at it — it’s real pretty — and she’ll eat whatever Dad cooks on it.

Cereal party? Sounds very Seinfeldian. I love the concept, though. Those who love to cook? Let them eat Maypo!

Hmmmm… I just may do this.

BTW, I LOVE that picture of Mouse. He’s so adorable.

Why Raypod (and Mouse)…shoulda known you had a Blog. And our mom hardly ever eats cereal and so we're thinking while we are in NY for the big cat show, we should get together for a few laps (not running, silly)
