I’ve mentioned before the food wars I’ve been having with my SS26 and his G/F… well, they’re escalating and I’ve decided to take the “eye for an eye” approach. It’s quite cathartic
We had leftovers from Christmas eve… I made crab cakes we had quite a few left over. I sent my step-daughter and her fiance’ home with four of them. There were 6 left as of Monday when I went to bed.
I figured we’d have them and a nice veggie for dinner last night. When DH called me yesterday at work, we talked about dinner, I mentioned the crab cakes, he said there weren’t any left. The PIGS ate 6 crab cakes after I went to bed on Monday
So… we got hoagies for dinner last night… which I wound up paying for. Got three…they were big. DH, me and my biokid wound up sharing two hoagies with a piece leftover.
DH offered them to SS and his g/f.. they said “no thanks, we have leftovers from dinner with MOM” (all of a sudden he’s all about his Mother again)
I wrapped them and put “Lunch” on the outside of the paper, and hid them in the lunchmeat drawer.
This morning, one whole entire hoagie and another 1/3 of one are GONE!
Soo… I took the leftovers from “dinner with MOM” and threw them down the garbage disposal. I went thru the stacks of yogurts he had in the fridge and anything that was even NEARLY out of date, I trashed… I emptied the veggie drawer of the grapes (which were nearly bad anyway) the carrots and the celery sticks he had in there and I tossed them too. I found the rest of the expensive bottle of fancy spiced rum he bought for himself… (there was about 1” left at the bottom) and I threw it down the drain.
I took the trash out and put a new liner in the can. I DARE him to ask me where his food is.
I figure that would be about even to the $$ spent on crab cakes and hoagies….
“since ur both home and not working today, the stairs need to be vacuumed and the kitchen needs to be swept. TODAY please.”
Let him tell his father that I am daring to ask them to do CHORES!
Let the games begin!
