Frankenstein’s Dinner…

There have been times, more than once, where I am asked my least favorite question in the world and had to come up with an answer, an answer that I had to make up.

Every mom (or dad) has a panic solution for when this question catches them off guard. Some order pizza, others play it cool and act like take-out was their plan all along, not me… I go into full freak-out- and-cook-now mood. I forage the fridge looking for a ‘green’, I hunt the cupboards in hope to find a wheat, I search the remains of the kitchen looking for the protein and iron food (normally a meat), and then pray a dairy will pop up along the way. That is when I make, what we refer to as, Frankenstein’s Dinner.

Just like the monster he created, Frank’s dinner is whatever we I could dig up all stitched together in one bizarre and freakish meal. Unlike Frank’s monster I do try to make sure this dinner is healthy and won’t chuck small children in the river.

Bon appétit

Note ~ (Frankenstein Spoiler) On the topic of Frankenstein, I know the book and movie are different, in the book he saves the little girl and in the movie he kills her. I need to read it again… it’s been so long.

  1. My wife and I have the dreaded “what’s for dinner” conversation all the time. When we experiment, it gets scary. Usually, when we come up with an edible abomination we have to keep the enchiladas separate from the french fries, kale goat cheese lasagna and mushy peas in fear the the universe will collapse if they all touch.

    All in all, it’s good that your Frankenstein dinner doesn’t involved kid tossing because it’s hard to explain that your meal tosed your kid into a river!

      Thank you (and your wife) for saving the universe from mass destruction caused by food. I truly appreciate it.
      I’ve witnessed near world destruction due to food touching before. It’s not a pretty sight. The peas rolled into my (then) 4 year olds mashed potatoes causing the walls to vibrate, windows to crack, and the 4 year old to scream like a wild banshee. I thought my head was going to explode. I carefully defused the situation by slowly moving the green peas, which had touched the white glop, off the plate and all was well.

  2. Wow, your Frankenstein’s Dinner looks way more tasteful than anything I could throw together on the fly.

      Oh trust me, there have been times when this monster is not near as appeasing as this. :-/ Also, I wasn’t too big in the sweet potato fries. They were just too sweet, everyone else LOVED them.

  3. The most evil answer to “What do you want for dinner?” is “I don’t care…” Feelin your pain!

  4. Good to see that you’ve got all the important food groups in there: red, green, yellow, orange and butter. Your creativity goes beyond the Wacom!

      Thank you! I keep drooling over the new-ish WACOMs that they have now. 🙂 I LOVE mine, but the WACOM is always brighter on the other side of the computer…*Deep sigh*
      One must always have butter. It’s like fashion black for food… it goes with just about everything and its shiny — only issue is it doesn’t make one look thinner. 😀
