Why Aren't We Having Waffles Tonight?

Because we're having chicken spaghetti tonight, that's why. Everyone loves it, we haven't had it in awhile, and I think it sounds pretty good.

Everything was going along just fine as I'm cooking the chicken breasts, chopping veggies, etc. when my teenage son comes in the kitchen and, seeing the recipe on my stand asks, "Whatever happened just plain ol' spaghetti?" The fact that we are known to have "plain ol' spaghetti" on a somewhat regular basis has completely escaped his memory. No matter though because that is not the point. The point is that, in the minds of these particular teenage boys, it almost never matters what I am making as it is almost never exactly what they are craving at a given moment in time.

For example, my other teenage son had kept insisting I make a certain chicken dish. So one evening I decide to make it, thinking he would be happy about it. Here's what actually happened: He came in the kitchen as I was preparing dinner, saw that I was making the meal HE SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED and asked me, (I swear this is true) "We're not having sushi?" What?! Sushi?! What in the world made him think we might be having sushi?! I'll tell you what - NOTHING!!! See what I mean?
