Every meal includes a main dish and one or two sides, never mind the fact that a cheeseburger, piled high with veggies, on a bun, includes literally every food group. Every main dish includes meat, or it's not a meal (no veggie lasagna in this household.) The side must be appropriate. Potato chips (aka crisps) are appropriate with a cheeseburger, while rice and broccoli go with fish. Don't even think of reversing the sides. Also, Cheeseburgers belong on a hamburger bun, not bread, so if you're out of buns and the fridge is overflowing with hamburger, it's gonna sit there until you get some buns or taco seasoning and shells (and tomatoes and lettuce and sour cream.) Breakfast is for breakfast and pizza is for dinner. There's no such thing as cold pizza.
Meanwhile, I consider gummy bears a viable meal. Some of my favorite lunches don't include meat: a bowl of mashed potatoes, a bowl of mac & cheese, a PB&J, or impromptu nachos (tortilla chips with shredded cheese, melted in the microwave.)
Your thoughts on the importance of appropriate food combinations and scheduling?
July is more than half over. You'll miss these opportunities when they're gone. If you started the month with us but fizzled out, come back! It's not too late, but we have just under two weeks before it will be. All you have to do is drop into scroll (the Messenger Console), say hello, write for thirty minutes, and report your word count at the end.
