Epic Fail in the Housekeeping Department Results in Win for Healthy Eating

Disclaimer:  There may be a bit of griping in this post~sorry!

A bit of back story…
The Hubs is a student and has the summer off. My job requires me to be super busy during the summer. Typically he takes on the household duties like laundry and dishes in addition to watching the hooligans and making dinner. This summer was a bit different. For some reason, the dishes kept getting overlooked. I did them for the first month but about 4 weeks ago I went on dishes strike. It turns out he did too. Every once in a while, one of us will give in and do a load, but when you have a back log it really doesn’t make much of a dent.

This leads to tonight’s conversation…

Hubs:  What should we have for dinner?

Home Ec Reject (HER): Dunno! We have some salmon in the freezer we should probably eat.

Hubs: What should we have with it?

HER:  How about one of the box o’ pastas we have in the cabinet?

So with a plan on making salmon and pasta for dinner I went into the kitchen to make dinner.

Challenge #1:  The grill pan was not in the cabinet. Dang! It must be somewhere in the mountain of dirty dishes that has grown from the sink.

Challenge #2:  Box o’ pasta selected but wait, there are no clean pots in the cabinet either. They must be the base of the mountain because I can’t see them.

Solution:  Salmon cooked in foil and steamed rice using the rice cooker. Add some microwaved frozen veggies and we have a healthy meal! How the heck did that happen?

PS-  I served the meal on paper plates.  I just couldn’t add any more to Mt. Dishes.  Sorry about that environment!
