On Saturday, we usually have "Saturday Night Special" which means either the Evil Twin or myself will run out and grab fast food for lunch/dinner. However, we had gone out to eat on Friday evening and I just had to have a McMuffin on Saturday morning, as I hadn't had one since Ash Wednesday (gave up the bread and baked goods for Lent).
I had some cube steaks I had to prep or throw out. So, about mid-day, I made country fried (or chicken fried) steaks, scalloped potatoes, cornbread stuffing and rolls. That was to be our big lunch/dinner thing. Of course, Sissy sat and picked at her plate and ate next to nothing.
Later on, she said she was hungry (go figure) so I got her some pepperonis - she likes the cold pepperoni slices right out of the bag. Then, she was thirsty, so I gave her a box of 100% apple juice.
When she finished her juice box, she asked if she could throw it in the trash, and I said, "Yes."
She went into the kitchen and returned holding a roll. A roll she had already taken a bite out of. Buddy noticed it first and asked, "Where did she get that roll?"
Then, I turned to see her taking the bite out of her mouth to hand it to me. She had retrieved the roll from the TRASH CAN! Yes, my darling daughter is a Dumpster Crab.
She was so hungry, she scavenged a filthy dinner roll from the garbage!
The Evil Twin threatened to call CPS on me! LOL.
We all laughed SO hard about this situation that we embarrassed her and she cried.
Go, Family! We're awesome!
Later on, Buddy mentioned that he thought he saw a piece of scalloped potato stuck on the end of the roll. GROSS!
Honestly, I was feeding her. I had no clue she would reach in and pluck something from the trash!
It was HER roll that she had not eaten at dinner, so I suppose that makes it just an inkling better.
Still. Can I get my "Mom of the Year" award yet?
