what's for dinner?

I should be grocery shopping instead of sitting at my computer. I have no idea what to make for dinner. Procrastinating for a few more minutes, I read this, linked to here.

If it seems unimaginable that a working, insured mom would need to take her kids to a soup kitchen, not to volunteer but to eat, then read it and contemplate what "working poor" really looks like. wow.

Oh, yes. I read this yesterday, and abruptly cancelled a pity party I was having for myself as I struggled to chase after a 14-month old while a 5-week old screamed bloody murder from my sling. Hello reality check!

yep - how many times do you hear someone say, "there's nothing to eat in this house" and mean that nothing appeals.
