Adult decision wins out; snap peas it is


This morning I woke up and stared through half-mast eyes into the refrigerator, waiting for my morning meal to appear. It didn’t.

So I decided to eat a chocolate cookie and three leftover Cajun spiced chicken wings for breakfast. Cold.

The cookie went better with my coffee than the wings did, but both were delicious.

This is not my normal breakfast, of course. Normally I’m busy reminding my family to eat something healthy and balanced because that’s my job as a parent. Their job is to listen to me, even though deep down I know they want a piece of cake.
