Junk that annoys me
There are some junk food items that just don't tempt me. More than that, they downright annoy me.
And I have been known to get more than a bit persnicketedy when the other adult in the house brings them home for the kids or for his guy friends.
The biggest culprit is chips, usually in the form of Doritoes or Frito Lay Corn Chips. Then's there's the artificial cheese dip that goes with the chips. And lastly any "pastry" item that could last a year and still be considered fresh: Hoho's, Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes, Little Debbie items, you get the idea.
I grew up in a house where chips were a once a month treat and there were only enough cookies to provide for four children's school lunches per week. At the time, I remember being jealous of a girl who had Oreo cookies and Doritoes as after school snack options, while I choose from the following four staples: nuts, apples, peanut butter crackers and popcorn. But, I have long ago realized that those choices were a blessing.
How do you handle the different eating habits the other parent in your house brings to the table?
