But I had no lettuce. No tomatoes. No onions. And I'm pretty sure there were no buns, too.
I might be able to handle a patty on spinach with cheese and Dijon mustard but I'm pretty sure Mark would have thrown it in my face and made me sleep outside in the snow.
So I turned to a tried and true family favorite that is perfect in situations like these.
Grilled chicken with spinach and coleslaw.
It's super easy to prepare. In fact, it only takes a few steps.
Drive past your house and head to the nearest KFC. While the grocery store, with its healthy rotisserie chickens, is also nearby, the KFC is preferrable because you don't have to get out of the car.
Purchase a four-piece meal for you and your significant other. White meat for her, dark meat for him. Pick one side for each person - mac and cheese for him and cole slaw for her - because you know you have frozen vegetables in the freezer.
Greet your husband and baby while making a bee line to the kitchen. Microwave your frozen veggies (in a microcooker from Pampered Chef, ideally) while you plate your meal.
And, ta-da! Dinner on the TV tray in 5 minutes! Courtesy of the first "celebrity" chef.
