Compromising and Improvising

Mrs. Grumpy is out of town at a nurse's meeting for 2 days. So I'm trapped with the wild bunch.


Dr. Grumpy: "Hey, what do you guys want for dinner?"

Craig: "Tacos!"

Frank: "Hot dogs!"

Marie: "Don't care."

Frank: "We had tacos last week! He always gets what he wants!"

Craig: "You had a hot dog for lunch yesterday."

Frank: "You idiot!"

Craig: "You're stupider than Snowball!"

(scuffle)

Dr. Grumpy: "STOP THAT!!!"

(silence)

Dr. Grumpy: "Let me look in the fridge."

Hmm. We have some hot dogs, leftover taco meat from last week, shredded cheese. No buns, or bread. How can she leave us without bread?!!! Now what do I do...

Dr. Grumpy: "Okay! Instead of hot dogs or tacos... We're having Taco Dogs!"

(Put together on the spur of the moment from leftovers. A taco shell, with a hot dog, taco meat, and cheese. They were surprisingly popular, albeit unhealthy).

Were you eavesdropping on a conversation between my husband and my 2 boys? Cuz I'm SURE that conversation has occurred in my house at least once during some absence of mine!!

I made spaghetti marinara last night and my husband wanted to add hot dogs - yuck - I told him, "No way." He could add it to his but not to the pot for everyone.

Maybe he just wanted more for him.

Better Taco Dogs than dog tacos.

I'm very tempted to try to recreate this when my shift is over!

LOL...did Marie roll her eyes, sigh, and get out the Chinese delivery menu for her dinner? Your life is like watching my favorite sitcom :)

Inventing the taco dog moves you from cook to chef.

not so gross...not-spouse time is secretly wonderful. I (secretly) served "Stubble" popcorn and coke (the bottled kind) for dinner on Friday nights - back in the day...

Yay! Let's hear it for Grumpy creativity! Meets two conflicting needs at once, on fridge leftovers.

I'm sure, judging from one of your previous posts, they were either delicious, average, or horrible.

What I have learned by experience as a Dad: you are supposed to feed *pets* the appropriate food for their species...take-out pizza and large cokes to go!

ver. word: *dundst*
Some real *dundces* around here, methinks! Go stand in the corner!
Will bring over the little pointy hat later!

from now on, when Mrs Grumpy makes regular tacos, your kids will complain. And you will get a angry look.

I hope you didn't secretly put Tobasco sauce in the taco sauce bottle.

not entirely related, but something you may wish to contribute to.

you just brought back memories from my childhood! strangest one for me was ranch style beans with a can of tuna on crackers. surprisingly un-disgusting.

Louise said...

Absolutely f'n brilliant.

Kat's Kats said...

Sounds good to me! Hey, I'm a mom and that's what I would have done!!

moplans said...

Sounds like something my wife would crave when she was pregnant.

This is one of your cutest entries ever. "You're stupider than Snowball" also cracked me up.
