Skillet Dinner – Recipe Included

4 Comments

It’s not what you think.

It’s not what it ought to be.

It ought to be a delicious, hearty skillet full of things like vegetables and potatoes and sausage. Maybe it has an egg on top, or some cheese melted over it. You can picture it, right? So can I, but it’s not what was in my skillet dinner the other night.

My skillet dinner was actually dessert.

Yes, I skipped the whole dinner thing altogether and just made, and ate, dessert.

I blame the internet for this.

You see, one of those delicious Buzzfeed recipes came across my Facebook page and I just had to check it out. It claimed to be a three course meal, but all I saw was dessert. A giant, gooey skillet cookie.

I didn’t have a skillet.

I bought one.

It was on the list, anyway, so don’t judge me.

It was so easy. It was so delicious. It was so full of calories.

At least there were fewer calories consumed than if I had eaten it AFTER a meal, rather than INSTEAD of it, right? And there were leftovers, plenty of them. It was too rich to eat much of.

Would I make it again? Yes.

Would I have it for dinner again? Also yes.

I have no shame.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the teenage son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.
