I made a gluten-free + dairy-free mac and cheese for lunch today. I haven’t made macaroni and cheese in years.
I was feeling proud of myself as I stirred the golden goodness in my stainless steel pot, since this dish satisfied everyone’s intolerances and was pretty healthy!
No mom guilt! 🎉
I need you to know my kids (aside from the toddler) are not picky eaters at all.
The verdict: Half of my kids complained and rinsed their noodles off, one wouldn’t even try it, and one only ate their meal because I promised a cookie for dessert.
Guys, I failed! I find I’m doing this a lot more lately and it’s terribly troubling.
Failure and rejection are hard for me, even within the walls of my very own home.
I struggle with loving myself and can too often base my self worth on my achievements.
I know this thinking is backwards and the only way to straighten it out is taking it to the Lord.
I’m just telling you this in case you struggle with this imbalance too.
You can are enough, whether your mac & cheese is edible or not. ❤
PS. I too thought the lunch was crap.
