Post Feminism 101: Don't give a rip about dinner, leave it to the internets...

Like many of you, I'm a working mom with no time for domestic niceties. I'm a multitasking acrobat all day long and too often I overlook things like grocery shopping and dinner prep. So when five o'clock rolls around, my inner feminist gets all cranky and becomes defensive about what constitutes a woman's duties. [And you know my inner hypocrite wouldn't even say peep about feminism if my fridge were full.]

Hubs: (Yawn) I'm hungry bebe, what's for dinner?
Inner Feminist: What the hell, you can make something to eat by your dang self! Pfft. It's not my job to make you dinner, this isn't 1950!
Hubs: Take it easy... maybe you should have some wine.
Me: I'm sorry. I just forgot to go to the store. Wine sounds great.

Thanks to the magnificent internet, this wicked exchange is easily avoidable! Last week I was strapped for time (yet again) and needed to whip up something in a hurry. I came across this little gem  and quickly popped in the things I already had in my fridge (ground turkey, cheese, tater tots, tuna, tomatoes, ketchup and milk). In no time at all, I had a fast, easy recipe for cheeseburger casserole. Dinner was made with no stress, no trips to the store and no macaroni-in-a-box type guilt. Infact, using was so easy [wait for it],  even a man can do it. :)
