Hope Fading...




As I am trying to figure out how I can make up some family & freezer friendly meals for our upcoming busy & chaotic schedule (basketball galore), a faint but familiar memory comes to mind. I have suddenly realized that as a little girl I watched with great awe and hope for my future while being entertained by The Jetson's cartoon, all the while was being lied to. You see, these fraudulant futuristic characters told me of great things to come...flying cars, a loveable (ok, not always loveable) robot maid, a dog that no doubt wouldn't make any messes on the floor, and of course my very favorite, a MEAL MACHINE! It all makes sense to me now why I so eagerly joined Future Homemakers of America (was even the VP) in high school...I knew for certain that a homemaker's job was sure to be different by the time I was running a household! With a push of a button, a stylish outfit on, lipstick in place & family gathered around the table, I would effortlessly present my "masterpiece meal."


So you can see that after holding out hope for 40 years, I feel really dupped. What happened? Was it a lie all along or was it some sort of conspiracy to keep us barefoot, pregnant & in the kitchen? (BTW, the up-to-date version of that would be blogging, adopting & ....in the kitchen! Ok, some things never change.)

They can put a man on the moon, but they can't give us gals our own little meal vending machine?? I'm appauled & think we should start some sort of petition.

Have you ever heard of Homemade Gourmet??? Check to see if anyone in your area sells it. It is family and freezer friendly meals. Love it. It goes over great in my area. The mixes that you buy will have just a few ingredients that you need to purchase and honestly, they are usually items that you already have on hand. You really need to check out the web site. If I can give you ideas I would be happy to help you out. Have a good day!!! Tana Sue

Jetsons were my favorite! I too had visions of that easy meal prep. Boy it didn't take long after marriage to burst that bubble, did it. :)
