I am fond of saying an organic Pop Tart is still a nutritionally-unsound Pop Tart.

And an all-natural tater tot is still an over-processed potato product. Tonight, Nonna and I had burgers and over-processed potato product. And fresh tomatoes with mozzarella and basil. And organic catsup.

I’m still working on Nonna’s likes-and-dislikes, and tater tots are pretty inoffensive. I actually think my problem is that I’m over-thinking menus and meals. I used to just go into the kitchen and make things – and never had a problem. I just kinda figured that whatever I did would work. Lately, I’ve been spending more time wondering whether she would like something or not and second-guessing myself with the yeah-or-nay thoughts. I think I probably just need to start cooking again and not think about it. Of course, that’s easier said, than done.

The reality is, she’s eaten everything I’ve made with the exception of the asparagus. Time to get creative, again.

In the meantime, I’ve found out that she likes hot dogs almost as much as I do.

We’re getting along just fine…
