Oh no, you DIDN'T

Oh yes, I did.

Lunch in the Den of Chaos. I start combing the cupboards and I’ve got…nothing. I mean, I've got a lot of fixin's, but I've got nothing that's ready to just EAT.

Out of bread for the next three hours.
Just had mac-n-chez yesterday.
Saving the cheese and cracker and fruit plate routine for snack.
Only one can of raviolis, not enough for the five of us.
Leftovers – HA! They didn’t eat them when they were new-overs!
Out of fish sticks. Out of spaghetti-os. I could make spaghetti-spaghetti, I guess…

Hey, I’ve got a few chicken nuggets languishing in the freezer. That’ll work. Not quite enough for the kids, but there’s also a half bag of tator tots.

Hmm, directions say to oven bake or deep fry…saaaaaaaay, I’ve got a brand new deep fryer…

{deep fries chicken nuggets}
{deep fries tator tots}
{assures self that they are Yummy cooked that way}

So I had enough chicken nuggets for the girls, but not for me. I was going to have, like, an apple and maybe a few tator tots and the pathetic half bagel pining away on top of the fridge.

But then, it occurred to me that I had some chili out in the freezer.
And I had tator tots.
And cheddar cheese.
And sour cream.

Sounds like an impromptu casserole to me!!

So I have just put crispy fried tator tots in a bowl, layered chili over them, added a handful of shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream, and eaten it for lunch.

By my rough estimation, I have just consumed enough fat and calories for a week's worth of lunches in this one go.

Dinner tonight will be a salad.

Deep fried. With sour cream and cheese on it.

Oh yeah.

Ooooooooh, HELL yeah.
