CMB A -Convenient- Meal

A “Convenient” Meal

I mean really convenient, like convenience-store, convenient.   I’m running home late from work, picked up the kids from preschool minutes before it closed, and my husband phones me to say he’s stuck in traffic and he’s been scanning the console for abandoned Goldfish crackers to eat in desperation. A chorus of grumbling stomachs crescendo in unison and you have absolutely nothing […]

Life’s Not Always Fair… But Sometimes it Should Be!

  They say that “art imitates life.” I have often thought about a scene from the 2004 classic “Mean Girls.”  The character Regina George was the quintessential “cool girl.” She was also a snob, controlling, narcissistic, and self-centered.
