Free Your Soul Friday: I’m an Excellent Meatloaf Cooker
Today, my son gave me the lovely card, above, for Mother’s Day.
I laughed and said, “Excellent meatloaf cooker?!”
He responded, “Mom, you’re not the best cook. But when you do cook, it’s awesome.”
Moment of hesitation, brought on by continuing honesty compulsion… “Awe, thanks, baby!”
The meatloaf is Stouffer’s. (I swear they’re not paying me to write this). But technically, I do cook it. I set the oven at 350. I slide the prepackaged tray of meatloaf in. I take the tray out before the meatloaf burns.
I AM AN EXCELLENT MEATLOAF COOKER!
This is the truth.
Tell no one.
Because I’m totally taking the credit. (Have been for years.)
My husband is the chef and primary cook in this family.
I cook out of a box, shame be gone.
It’s called, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” parenting.
Angie, being Angie. A perfectly imperfect woman, daughter, friend, mother, and wife. I’m a lover and a fighter. I’m up, and I’m down. I succeed. I fuck up. (I cuss). I hope people see things here and in my writing they only think to themselves and are inspired to be unashamed of who they are.
Let’s live life… out loud.
