“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or all the others crazy?”
- Albert Einstein
Mike, Hugo, and I all refer to each other as The Crazies. This started as a reference to the movie The Crazies and was chosen, well, for obvious reasons.
Katie – You decided to bake 6 dozen cookies the night before a final exam because you were worried the house didn’t smell ‘Christmas-y’ enough?
From the movie The Crazies.
Mike – You thought it would be a good idea to start an outdoor construction project during the rainy season when we have back-to-back weekend guests?
Hugo – You had us walk you all the way to the dog park, not so that you could play with the other dogs, but so you could give yourself a back massage by rolling in the gravel area that everyone else pees in?
I might as well get you started in a child acting program for The Crazies 2.
Thankfully, this nickname did not come because we are B level actors who were infected with radiation and starting mindlessly killing each other. However, dinner time at our house can be a bit bumpy without a plan, and I often feel like this when Mike and I play the third round of “Well I don’t know, what do you want?”
As much as I would love to tell you that some form of gorgeous dinner graces our table every evening, the reality is that tuna melts on the trunk in front of the TV is often closer to the reality. But THAT’S OK! When I got into the blog world, I often felt so guilty that I wasn’t spending copious amounts of time shopping and cooking every week. But the reality is that most of us don’t HAVE the time – but that doesn’t mean we don’t care to serve ourselves and our families a healthful nightly meal. So rather than feature the rare occasion where I make some recipe-driven three course meal, here at ‘Dinner with The Crazies’ you’ll find my more interesting weeknight attempts at getting dinner on the table from what I have on hand. And soon enough you’ll be here on The ARD, shaking your head, and saying “Man, she is from The Crazies.” And I’m alright with that.Picture Source
