This is what is for dinner tonight:
My Body is all: YES! lean protein and vegetables! Just what I am craving!
My Heart’s all: WHAT? lean protein and vegetables?!? But where are the tater tots?!?!
Well, they’re in the freezer, Heart, because last night I listened to you and all we had for dinner was tots with hot sauce and sour cream plus two frozen waffles and two graham crackers. That simply will not do.
Body, I could tell that the meal of tots-waffles-grahams was not your idea of a good time. You missed having some protein, so for the rest of the evening we were sort of listless and lightheaded and we tossed and turned when we went to bed. I am trying to remedy that sitch, Body, with this sensible but still pretty tasty (though not tots-level tasty) dinner.
Of course, my Head is all: quit talking to yourself and eat your damn dinner, weirdo.
My Head has a wisdom that my Heart and Body sometimes lack.
Then again, my Head just sanctioned a screening of The Notebook on a night when my Heart is feeling all maudlin about its state of affairs, so it’s kind of an idiot too.
P.S. Tater Tots is a tag I have used on this blog already. Tater Tots. Deep stuff, this.
