For weeks I have been suggesting to Ryan that we should institute Meatless Monday. First, I went through the health benefits. Then, I went through the economical benefits. He wasn’t buying it, but he didn’t completely write it off.
Well, I think I have his answer. Yesterday (Monday) he was left to fend for himself for dinner (something that I was not certain he could actually do) and he sent me this picture . . .
That would be ribs (leftovers), mashed potatoes (leftovers), biscuits (leftovers), sausage gravy (leftovers). No vegetables.
When confronted, he sheepishly said, “But I had potatoes, aren’t those a vegetable?” Hmmmmmm. We have a long way to go.
All in all, I think that we learned three things: (1) I have a long way to go before Ryan agrees to Meatless Mondays; (2) Ryan doesn’t know what vegetables are; and (3) Ryan can fend for himself for dinner . . . as long as there are leftovers.
