The Wife

My wife just said something that brought a tear to my eye. After firing up the XL for 2 chicken breasts and some green beans, she said she now understands why people have more than one egg. She said it just seems like a waste of charcoal to light the XL for such a small cook.

I agreed and suggested a second egg. She didn't agree, but in time she will. Bwaa ha ha! She'll give in after a while.

    Just start leaving pictures of an expensive boat or sports car. Then settle for a 2nd egg.

    The boat is in the 5 year plan. She has learned to ignore the pictures of the boat. However, the sports car, or new truck is a great idea!

    Or you can fire up the XL and the L, so you can do that meat and the big veggie wok.  Actually, we've been talking about a small for the meat now that it is just two, but we still need the XL for that nightly big basket of veggies, done both direct and indirect.

    That's more than enough reason for a celebration-follow Ottawa_Eggman's suggestions-you are home free.  I should be so lucky:)

    I've got a great one! God Bless, her, too. She got me the BGE for my birthday last year. We both love it.
