Live Real. Eat Real.

My Favorite Fantasy Redux

Due to the craziness that is my life right now and the many things I simply cannot blog about, I am re-running a few of my favorite posts from before the time I had any readers to speak of.  Hopefully this will only last a week or two; things ARE calming down and I DO have some good news about some of my recent issues.  Until then, in between “normal” postings, I give you some of my more obscure “greatest hits.”  Enjoy.

My favorite fantasy does NOT include Patrick Stewart in his Federation uniform, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine or Johnny Depp in any way, shape, form or fashion. Believe it or not.

No, my favorite fantasy involves me waking up at 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning (that is a fantasy in itself), stumbling into the kitchen to make coffee only to find my loving family – my ENTIRE loving family – gathered around the dining room table with half a dozen cookbooks and an equal number of recipe websites on my laptop, our grocery store’s sale circular spread out between them. There’s a lively discussion taking place about individual tastes (especially mine), what meals accommodate the family’s busy schedules, what is cost-effective, nutritious and tasty.

They are planning the menu for the week.

They don’t have to go grocery shopping; they don’t even have to cook any of the meals (lest we leave fantasy behind and enter the land of utter lunacy); just plan them. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for seven days.

Nirvana.

Disclaimer: Since my Beloved is the most avid reader of my blog, I feel obligated to mention that he does our laundry. Every week. He also has no issues with vacuum cleaners, dust rags, SOS pads or toilet brushes. He does more than his fair share of housework.

See this? It is my ass. It is covered.

Here’s hoping the dust settles soon – but I’m lovin’ this recycled post! Why wasn’t Patrick Stewart poring over the cookbooks and helping plan the menu for the week?? It is a great fantasy in spite of his absence, though… ;)

And Beloved? SUCH a keeper! My hubby will clean the bathroom HE uses exclusively once in a blue moon. Is it time for a blue moon yet? ;)

I am hoping things get better around your way. Just caught up with what was/is going on with your nephew. How horrible! It seems that despite it all at least he has a positive attitude?

Side note: My son in law does stem cell research and I am hoping he will be able to find cures for lots of stuff. It’s amazing the flack he catches because of what he does though. He is in medical school at Vandy and last year some crazy with a gun tried to break into the building because he wanted to kill one of my SIL’s instructors. Scary people in the world.

Well, I have been a fan almost from the beginning, so I think I have read ALL your deathless prose. But if you are going into reruns I think I would like to lobby for Sex in the Laboratory. For me, it was a highlight.

Though I am also always glad for martini recipes… :-)

My dream is to leave Clutter Lunacy by hiring a maid.

I don’t remember this one so it’s new to me! And yes, it would be lovely if the answer to “What would you like for dinner” was something other than “I don’t know. What do you want?”

Other half is also very domesticated. Important to sort that out this time around…

Be well, dear. Hang in there.

How very creative, yet wise, of you to share this wonderful fantasy while covering said ass. That’s why we love you!

I remember this one! I have indeed been following you from the day you posted on the bear’s site that you had a blog. I hope that you are all OK over there sweets. Positive thoughts vibing out at you. (((hugs)))

Mrsbear says:

Ha! I hate being in charge of all meals, I would love a little feedback, or even better, just to have the decision making process of my shoulders. At their best all I get is a shrugh and “I don’t know” when I ask, “So, what do you guys feel like having?” Ugh.
