Do you ever have 'nothing' to eat at your house?

We never have nothing to eat, but sometimes I don't like the options. When I was growing up, we'd sometimes run out of food, and my mom would tell us to open a can of expired cranberries... yuck. I would just go hungry til she shopped.

  • For me we can have a whole house full of food and sometimes it seems like theirs nothing to eat. But I think it's not anything that is appealing to me at the time. But yeah I hate that!

  • My kids always say we have 'nothing to eat'. It doesn't matter if I have just gone shopping or we're down to bare bones in the pantry - as far as they're concerned, we never have any food. LOL. They're always hungry too! Good thing school starts in 1 hour and 17 minutes!

  • We always have food.., but sometimes we just do not want to cook so we go out to eat..It really depends on what we want at the moment.

  • According to my kids, we never have anything to eat in our house. I can home from grocery shopping and they will complain. In reality, we never have junk food (i.e. chips, cookies, etc) in our house. I just don't buy them regularly. When I shop, I shop for full meals that require assembling and cooking - hahaha. In our house - this qualifies as nothing! hahahaha
