Does anyone else struggle with what to cook for tea?
I have to cook for two others as well as me
Sometimes I make three different meals here
c'mon Sue from the Brew get ya head into gear
One has to be gluten free, one a veggie
the other well he'll eat anything if it includes a potato wedgy
Surely I can mix all these into one
otherwise the time in the evening will have all gone
I want to provide nutrition and something new
but not make gravy that looks like glue
There's only so many nights we can have pizza
I need inspiration, a meal that looks neater
I've tuned into Masterchef and taken notes from Jamie
but get a bit lost, well can you blame me?
My dinner never looks like theirs
I even struggle poaching pears
I am going to try and persevere
but I get to 5pm and end up on my rear
NO Sue get up and try your best
The family need you and then you can rest
Thank you for reading today.
Join me again tomorrow for
Free From Friday
but for now...
I just couldn't decide what to have to eat yesterday, I wasn't in the mood to cook and ended up in the end having a bowl of bananas and custard because that's all that I fancied.
I thought I would use my lack of appetite as inspiration for my verse today.....
I don't know what to have for my tea
my appetite seems to have left me
My stomach it rumbles
but my brain it stumbles
on what I should have for my tea
It's not that I haven't been shopping
my cupboards are positively popping
I'm not being lazy
just feel a bit hazy
deciding what I should have for my tea
I've already cooked for the kids
but for me something forbids
Ok I'm watching my weight
and some foods I have to eliminate
but there must be something to have for my tea
I'll snack a bit and see how I go
to test if my hunger will grow
I'm not going to get flappy
as Slimming World will be happy
that no syns were used with my tea
Nope nothing tickles my fancy
a takeaway would be way too chancy
It would be very quick
but I'd be stuffed and feel a bit sick
no not having that for my tea
Maybe I am a bit tired
with nothing really to be desired
I'm off to see what I can do
get off my arse, try something new
then.....I'll have something for my tea
Thank you for reading, I'll be back tomorrow for Free from Friday.
A Verse for Thursday....
