spoiled by a sulfiting agent

i'm so dumb.  last night, i seasoned my bare brand chicken with this montreal chicken seasoning that i love and ALWAYS use... i didn't even think, "what's in this?"...i googled the last ingredient: sulfiting agents.

i was so mad i could spit.  a sneaky preservative.  gotta go through my spices now.  mother fudgers.

so the adults took one for the team and i made some of the purdue simply - lightly breaded chicken chunks for the kids.  i don't know what i was more mad about, the fact that i couldn't give the kids the bare chicken tenders or that i got two pans dirty.

last night's dinner:

avocado chunks w/ cut up nuggets seasoned with s&p and organic ketchup for dipping.

go go squeeze berry applesauce pouches.

lays potato chips and veggie chips.


1/2 ciao bella ice cream sandwich squares

i gave them little cups with ketchup and did not refill them.  they are slowly getting used to my ketchup rationing (about a tablespoon).  i swear abbie would have gone through a cup of ketchup by herself.

this dinner is not magical by any means.  it was very simple & easy.  and hello, we had the bears vs packers game to watch in our neighbor's garage.

this is real life people.

challenge:  what the heck do i do when we go to a party and there is food available to the kids on my crazy shitlist?  food that i served less than a week ago, and that the kids know and love!?  good luck with that.  here is what i did:  i told the kids what they could have, went home and got them dessert.  i let them have a capri sun and more potato chips which were a-ok with ingredients.  no problem.  then, when we got home we reminded them about our little experiment.  they got it.  i think.

what should YOU do if my kids come over to your house?  nothing.  nada.  zilch.  i will bring stuff for them:)

my head hurts thinking about this stuff.  i think it's this whole looking crazy thing.  and wanting my kids to enjoy being kids.  they had more sugar tonight than i would have liked.  it's ok.  i think i'll relax more once this month is over, gotta sort it all out...find balance.

feel the force luke.
