So I went to the shop looking for inspiration for supper. . . But unless the dictators at home are happy with empty plates. . . I was at a loss. . .
What the heck! There is NO flippen food!
So I walked around looking for something I can work with . . .
Meat… Only steak and lamb. . . EXPLICIT WORD!
Okay . . . Found a packet with 2 VERY thin steaks for R40.
Ummmmm there is tomato relish! Cool . . . Maybe I will make tomato bredie . . . Hahaha! Ja right, my two dictators will pack up and duck!
So, while walking past the Mexican shelf . . . I see nacho mix! Okay now we’re cooking . . .
With fingers crossed I run (I DO NOT RUN… I LITERALLY RAN) to the dairy fridge . . .
Awesome sour cream! Yes I can do this . . .
Ran (I was panting like a marathon RUNNER now) to the cheese!
Literally squealed when I saw some . . . And then had a little of a coughing fit (I really don’t exercise much).
Right, one more ingredient . . .
Please food God, let there be nachos by the chips . . . So I half hobbled, half limped to the chips. . .
Please, please, please… Oh EXPLICIT WORD! . . . There are none . . .
I literally sobbed a little . . . Okay, I panted and sobbed . . . Now what?
DORITOS. . . DORITOS . . . OH MY GOSH . . . DORITOS! YES!!!
Snarled at the poor lady who was reaching for a packet, grabbed two, and hobbled wildly (looked a little like Golem . . . I might have muttered “my precious” ) to a till.
Got home, cooked for 30 minutes, and BOOM!
1 meal out of 30, while the schools are closed, done!
YASSS, FANCY MOMMY!

Final Editing for #ImStaying
I’m a lover of words, of mentoring, networking, and helping my fellow man to ‘learn to fish’. Driven by a hunger to never stop learning, I have a passion for adventure and travel, sundowners and laughter with good friends. At the end of the day what brings great delight to my life are my young adult sons.
