Tonight while getting ready for supper I started pulling containers out of the fridge and the conversation went something like this.
Me: We're just having leftovers so it will only take me a minute.
Nollie: No, I don't want leftovers
Me (thinking: you don't even know what leftovers are): Do you want the spagetti & meatballs or the cranberry chicken?
Nollie: No, I don't like leftovers
Me (thinking too bad so sad, that's what you're getting): Mmm the chicken has Craisins on it, do you want the chicken.
Nollie: Not leftovers (starting to break down & cry)
Curt: I don't want leftovers either I want Awesome Yesterday Dinner, who wants Awesome Yesterday Dinner, I do!
Nollie: Yeah, Awesome Yesterday Dinner. Mom I don't want leftovers I want Awesome Yesterday Dinner.
Me: Great, that's what we're having then
Everyone ate heaping plates of Awesome Yesterday Dinner. Sometimes at the end of the day when your brain is fried you just need someone with some fresh new ideas. Curt to the rescue, saved us from a fight and a couple of breakdowns, me included.
So, if you're ever having a hard time selling leftovers try having "Awesome Yesterday Dinner"
