Last Sunday, I tearfully waved goodbye to my daughters as they went off to church camp for a week.
The tears were tears of joy.
Why? Because without two hungry teenagers in the house, suddenly I could afford to partake in my favorite pastime. Eating.
It started with Tuesday. King Crab Legs, baby!! I'm talking those super-sized suckers that have spiky legs the length of my own arm. I'm still drooling.
Tonight, it was Beth's favorite restaurant.
Don't let the picture of the (moderately) healthy ceasar salad fool you. My entree was grilled shrimp skewers dripping with garlic butter. Hopefully I'll still have garlic breath when they come home tomorrow and I kiss them hello.
Tomorrow, they're back. And I'm back to cheapo Mac & Cheese and Ramen soup.
