What's for dinner? MAKES ME WANT TO PULL MY HAIR OUT! This is from MY CHILDREN, who have moved back home with their children. I say that I am going to do a menu and stick to it, but something always comes up and I don't do it.

What is the question that you hate?

Dinner tonight just wasn't supposed to be this way.
Started out with a plan to slow cook a top-round steak.
The cutting board got shoved under the big pan, plastic was burning...
Mercury is in retrograde, turned around in the small space and was startled
by dH, trying to interupt to reach his Salsa, stealthily-where did he come from?
I jumped, and things just haven't been the same since two hours ago.
A real blow to any confidence that I never had to start with, so this dish will be called Chili Colorado with black beans, pinto beans, and carrots, with a diced tomato sauce.
Needs salt.
Dinner is over.
Not going to clean it up, on purpose, had to throw away the cutting board.

Was looking at them, Stacey. Looks great, and I can peruse the recipes without logging in or buying. Every tip offered on the forum is always appeciated, one never knows when its going to help someone who is reading.

In memory of Gene Wilder, who could not bear one less smile in the world,
he never told his fans he had Alzheimers.

Sad.

Sendme, boss lady doesn't like H. Clinton. She only likes Trump. I didn't need to ask, I knew that was her preference.

I hate the question"How old was she?"when someone hears my mom has passed.Every time my heart sinks.What does it matter how old she was ?People die at every age.She's gone and just an "I'm sorry"would be kind.And I also hate the question"How are you getting along?"....What am I supposed to say...What do they think?I mean,there's no choice but to go on and keep putting one foot in front of the other......If I answered honestly I'd say"It's hell!".
Just a couple of questions that bother Me.

Tomorrow, your Mom asks about tomorrow? Around here, after my hubs and I determine. "What day is it?", that causes a big fight, lol, the next question is
"What are we going to do today".
Tomorrow, I am going to tell him he only gets one question!

Thanks, for the ideas, Gershun. However, I only like the white chocolate.

Send you could always smear chocolate on your husband's clean underwear and kill two birds with one stone. LOL. Or if you really wanted to gross him out you could lick the chocolate off while he is watching. Especially cause chocolate is the same color as ..............well you know.

Yes, I know I can be childish. :)

Going to get my own fresh box of groceries-its a little smaller at the end of each month-but managed very well this month-by trying harder and applying what I already knew about budgets.
Feeling blessed!

What? No chocolate, I will not survive!
Okay, did you mean the clean underwear on the pillow was a change from chocolates on the pillow?

Or did you mean the hellofresh box would be a change from the chocolate?
There is no chocolate in there? hmmmm

I had to ask the question...Pammzi, but it struck me funny either way. Lol.

Yes it is Hello Fresh.. and the meals for 2 make enough for 3 of us. I get free boxes sometimes because daughter gets them and somehow refers me. Then if I don;t re up,, I get a big discount on my next box. They send 3 meals a week. They send all the directions and recipes.. so you can remake them on your own. Daughter takes the leftovers from hers for lunch so it works out ok for her, but yes they are very pricey!

Pammzi, It actually is called: "Hellofresh".
Went to the site, 'fresh', thought you were saying: Stacey hello. Fresh...

Too pricey for me, and that is for two meals? Or two meals for seven days?
Guess I'm not getting it.
I must be blinded by brattiness.

Pictures! Thanks, menu planning just became easier!

If my hubs gets hungry and I don't want to cook, I am just going to say,
"Don't you remember, we just ate lunch, why don't you just snack until dinner."
Still, a brat.

I don't have kids, which is probably a good thing...because if they asked me that question every night my answer would be...I don't know, what are you making? LOL

I don't really have a pet peeve question. Sometimes tiny little things irritate me like when my dad takes brownies out of the fridge that I have baked for him and asks "do these have sugar?". He is diabetic. I make him baked goods from scratch with sugar substitutes. I have NEVER once brought an item with sugar in the house in 20+ years. Yet every single time he takes something out of the fridge he asks...does this have sugar? And every time I say, no dad I made those special for you. And every time he marvels at how I can make sweet items with no sugar. It's cute really...but 10+ times in one hour can grate on me a bit.

Oooh, I just got a glossy ad, that came in the mail called HOME CHEF. Now I certainly cannot afford to have meals delivered, but this one is a little different, in that they send the raw food , all of the sauces, glazes, spices and everything else to make your nice fresh homemade meals in about 30 minutes. So I went on their website to see HOW, MUCH, and ya, kinda pricey, for the average worker's wage. But, they have WEEKLY MEAL PLANS, And Gorgeous pictures, along with all of the preparation instructions! And really nice tasty foods of different varieties! I would go to their website just to look for idea's for weekly meal plans! Yummm!

Jeannegibbs,
Really like the menu plan idea.
A variation I recently tried after returning from the market, was to make a list of everything main dish ingredients available to make xyz dishes.
Tacos: Tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, taco sauce, cheese, cilantro, hamburger etc.
Then, my finicky husband gets to choose.
Turns out it was harder to get him to choose anything.
He does do well with an unchangeable routine, laying out his plate with a cover on it because he won't come when dinner is ready.

"What is the question you hate?"
8/29/2016
Just like when Cwillie's thread was taken down ( Pet Peeves) and everyone speculated why for so long...I am going to hate answering the question:
Why did admin take down the thread: "Caregivers Behaving Badly".
So here is the reason I am giving to avoid divisions among caregiver to caregiver friends, please accept A/C's decision.
Guessing they took it down because too many were behaving badly.

If you have found your way to this thread somehow, use it for good, be kind to everyone you meet, everyone here is fighting their own uphill battles we don't know about.

"Will you turn me over?" This could mean I'm bored, I'm wet, I want to go to the bathroom, I'm thirsty I'm....????? Mostly when I ask what she needs she says "I don't know", so we play 20 questions, usually ending with "I don't want anything I just want to be quiet". If she calls me one more time today I'm gonna jam pencils in my ears so I can't hear her....AAAAARGHHHHH!!!!

I hate "Where did you move the ____ to?" I am not the only human being in the house, nor am I the only human being who picks up objects to use in the house.

Could it be, just remotely possible that once or twice dear family member that YOU YOURSELF put the thing down and forgot where? Hmmmmm?
