What’s For Dinner?

February 19, 2008

I had so much to do around the house today that DH decided to take the girls out to the park and then to dinner. It was so nice to have the whole house to myself for a few hours. The best part is that when I cleaned up, everything actually stayed clean!

He asked if I wanted him to bring home dinner but I figured I would just whip up something simple for myself. Know what I ended up having?

A bag of M&Ms. How sad. However, in my defense they were peanut butter M&Ms and we all know peanut butter is great for protein, right?

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever had for dinner?

Spotlight Comment by Judy of Welcome to My World of Dreams:

Uh… the time when I made a cake (well, half a cake) because I had a craving for cake batter. (Hey.. it was TOO healthy! Haven’t you ever heard Bill Cosby talk about how healthy cake is????)

Um, how about today…? I had bean dip for lunch and raw cookie dough for dinner. My stomach’s feelin’ kinda weird…

Michelle in Mx said:

This is hillarious (and I sigh with envie since I would love DH to take the kids to the park AND then dinner!!!) But really, I tend to eat bad on my own, so I would mention what I whipped up for me by myself that was good! Today for lunch I made myself chickensalad that I served to myself in a tomato! It was really tasty too!
Otherwise - I’m like you . . . whatever chocolate I have around the house. . .

Slices of processed cheese (American that too!), kettle corn popcorn and a pint of B&J’s mint chocolate cookie… and then I told myself I was getting my fill of dairy :-)

I am forced to eat most of the left overs here because I live with a bunch of food snobs LOL! So take your pick, I’m usually combining things that shouldn’t really go together and regretting it later.

I never eat decent dinners on my husband’s football night. I feed my daughter and scrounge. Being that I am a celiac it usually means corn chips and hummus. But like you will frequenty be chocolate!

Do I have to actually admit it? Well, i do have to say that I’ve had M&Ms (or other forms of chocolate) for dinner sometimes, but probably the strangest would have to be chocolate chip cookie dough. Not the ice cream - the actual cookie dough.

Renee said:

I think one of my worst dinners was 2 Krispy Kreme donuts.

It wasn’t suposed to be that bad…but I didn’t leave time to eat before I went for a girls night out…I brought my dinner of an Arby’s sandwich…but I felt too uncomfortable to eat it in front of everyone. And then one girl brought the donuts. I gave the sandwich to my dog later.

I hate cooking for just one person. I can’t think of the worst thing I’ve ever had for dinner; lately, I haven’t been eating at all. But last night I had chips and salsa for dinner.

Well, M&M’s is definately not the worse… maybe the naughtiest ;) But I have had some pretty ROTTEN things for dinner before. BUT the naughiest thing I have eaten for dinner was cheesecake… like 4 pieces. It was soo good ;)

Write From Karen said:

The strangest? Probably a granola bar and two tortilla shells (I LOVE those things! Rolled up and plain *grin*)

When I first moved out of my parents’ house, I used to eat six packs of Milky Ways for dinner … for about a week. I would go to bed with a stomachache, but it was OH SO GOOD to eat what I wanted, when I wanted. hehe

I don’t know what the worst thing I’ve had — but I know I’ve justified the M&M’s because of the peanuts, too. giggle.

Tiffany said:

I can’t remember what the worst thing we have ever had for dinner. But, there are a lot of nights where we don’t really eat anything for dinner. Especially when one of us is sick. I just don’t make anything and make Andrew fend for himself.

English toffee, home made, with butter brown sugar, chocolate and nuts. Some of these are good for you, but I ate the whole thing. That is one whole pound of butter. Dang it was good.

A bag of Doritos. It was good while it lasted, I just had to deal with the guilt later and couldn’t sleep after that!

Kelly Rigby said:

Before I had kids, I’d eat any old thing for dinner because usually I’d eat a “proper” meal at lunch time. But the worst dinner I’ve ever had would have to be the time my married lover (I know bad form, am mortified by this now) broke up with me and I ate an entire CAPPUCCINO CHEESECAKE and polished off with a 1.25L of COKE. Yes, enough sugar for a small country. It all came back up again when I was wailing later that night too. Ick!
