"Mom, this cheese sauce smells just like the stuff (emphasis on 'stuff') at the movies."
"Yup, that's a warming chamber alright."
"Wait, how long do I put it in for?"
Oh, yes summer vacation is in full swing at our house. Unfortunately, the weather did not get the memo and is still begrudgingly sticking to it's guns delivering rain, wind, rain and oh, did I mention rain?
One day into summer vacation and the kids feel the need, the need for speed.
Bad movie references from the 1980's aside, I am slowly losing my mind and it has only been 24 hours.
Who invented the Real Meal Oven? And why do they insist on putting lifelike and perfectly lickable pictures of real food on the packaging when the end result resembles nothing near real or lickable?
With the latest FDA recall of yet another staple of our diet, I suppose eating the powdered cheese sauce won't kill them. In fact, maybe they're onto something. Maybe this strange, powdered, astronaut food is the wave of the future. Maybe that is what will save us from salmonella and other food-borne illness. Maybe Hasbro is in on a conspiracy that involves killing off humans, thus decreasing the world's population, thus decreasing the need for gas to be almost $5 a gallon because there would be less cars on the road if there were less people . . .
Maybe I need another cup of coffee (and quite possibly a shot of tequila) because clearly this whole summer vacation thing is getting to my head.

****I wanted to thank you all for your caring comments on the accident I spoke of last week involving my best friend's daughter. Your hugs, prayers and positive thoughts mean more than you can possibly know, and at this time, I'd like to invite you over to her place so that you can read about what happened.
