Sometimes it's a "suck your spit for dinner" kind of night. But not tonight.

So, we all had a really late lunch today, and everyone was nice and full. When 5:45 rolled around and everyone was talking about how full they still were, I thought I had gotten off the hook for dinner. WHEEEEEE!!!! My mind soared. What was I going to do with that extra hour or two? I could blog... No! I could take a bath and paint my nails... Noooo! I could do nothing at all. Just sit on my ass and enjoy some "mommy is watching TV so please Shhhhh" time. 

7:00 rolled around and it started. The dreaded question "what's for dinner" started getting thrown at me like rocks. Wait... what? It's 7:00. Are you serious?? Siiiigh. Now, I'm not gonna lie. The tired broad in me secretly wanted to say "you want dinner this late? Ok, suck your spit", but, the nice mommy in me got to work and whipped up a VERY quick, tasty, AND way delicious batch of "pizza" soup.(Tho in all honesty, it almost tastes more like a lasagna soup, but if you remember from my previous post about Skillet Lasagna, you'll know I love my lasagna. So that's quite alright with me.)

Crisis averted and there was  absolutely no sucking of spit involved and everyone is happy.

Tell me that's not delish!
