first world problems
then i left my employed world and i had a lot more time. i was delighted to be able to do a better job on the food front.
three years on, in a case of "be careful what you wish for" or maybe "the grass is always greener on the other side" food has become a kind of bittersweet tyranny. i like to think that i provide tasty and healthy food most of the time but with six adults, two of them ravenous young men, and two almost as ravenous young women, all with personal preferences and wildly varying timetables, keeping everyone happy seems to have become almost a full time occupation. and once they are fed there's the cleaning up and the shopping to do. it's endless.
as an added degree of difficulty, the boys start uni tomorrow and their timetables will require large amounts of portable food. there are only so many sandwiches any mum wants to make and the kids get equally sick of eating them, i am sure.
so, hit me with your best ideas for food on the go!
