I See You

Tonight we had a feast fit for a king.

Shrimp with Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper, Mrs. Dash Table Blend, Sea Salt and Pepper. Tossed in container and then thrown into the frying pan with butter.

Small red potatoes with butter and salt.

Corn on the cob with butter and salt.

Cucumber cut up with mayo and a dash of sugar.

T devoured everything.

I managed to eat everything but a bit of potatoes and half my corn.

I decided that to finish everything off I would have my Hagan Daz Triple Chocolate ice cream.

As I was sitting here watching King of the Hill, eating my ice cream when I feel someone staring at me. I glance over to the right of me and T is looking at me and my ice cream.

I asked him if he wanted some and he said yes. I went to hand him the container and jerked my hand back so I could eat the last bite of ice cream.

Tonight was a successful dinner night..

There was Laughter

T and I alternate nights of cooking and clean up when he is here.

He cooks, I clean up. And vise versa.

Last night was T’s night to cook and neither of us could really decide and given we had no salad materials, it really knocked a few options out of the running. Left with a choice between spaghetti or Hamburger Helper, we went the way of Hamburger Helper as we did not have enough spaghetti sauce.

This was T’s first time making it.

I was sitting on the couch and I could hear the water boiling when T mentioned that he thought that he had put too much water in. I said to him that it was okay, turn the heat down to simmer and let it go for another 10 minutes.

T: But mom I have to add the milk and pasta yet.

Me: Okay, add them in. And stir. Turn heat down.

T: I am waiting for the water to dissolve.

I tried, I tried so so hard not to laugh.

I failed miserably and though I tried to hide it I could not stop the snorting.

Instructions on the box: Brown meat. Drain off fat. Add in seasoning and 2 cups of water. Stir until dissolved.

Eventually T admitted that he too found it funny.

Not as funny as I have found it and I plan to remember this one for his kids when he has them.

Waiting for the water to dissolve. LOL LOL LOL
