The daily dilemma.
You think I would be used to this by now, but I am not.
I have been trying to come up with easy, tasty and healthy (read low sugar and fat) versions of the foods we like. I may as well be looking to create fission in a test tube. Tasty and low fat rarely coincide.
When summer comes it is usually a little easier to do this. BBQ a few chicken tits, throw a salad in a bowl and voila, your done. Except there are two problems this summer:
- if I eat one more piece of chicken I am going to start sprouting feathers.
- our BBQ is toasted. It is rusting out. The propane tank doesn't seem to shut properly, and it is held to the BBQ unit by a thick piece of twine and a prayer. And last night, it ran out of propane.
We will decide this weekend if we can simply get a new tank this year, and get the new BBQ the next (when I am off mat leave and making money again- not this insult euphemistically called Maternity Leave Benefits), or if the whole damn unit has to be laid to rest. Sent to that great Outdoor Picnic in the Sky.
In the meantime, I still have to come up with something to eat. Got any suggestions? Can we come to your house? What are you having? Hey, what have you got there?...oooh that looks gooood....
