Woe is Me! Maybe I should change to Dr. Crow!
What a week! It started out ok, except for a few hassles at work! But, what can you expect for 3rd shift and all this heat? (103 to 110 degrees for the past two weeks!)[p]We were/are looking forward to a holiday weekend visit of "Chicken Hawk" and "Chicken Little" along with the grandkids! (If you hadn't noticed or figured it out by now or from C~W's & GFW's post.."Chicken Hawk" is our son-in-law and "Chicken Little" is our youngest daughter!) Anyway I'm getting hyped up and planning all sorts of goodies for the weekend, when I get this e-mail asking; "Daddy, does GFW have (I can't believe I'm saying this!) sweet potatoes with every meal?" How should I know??? Nobody can have that sense of 'self destruction! Can they???[p]Anyway, it seems our youngest daughter is looking for new veggies or a least a better variety of veggies for the grandkids! Good girl! Teach 'em young, and they'll love their veggies all their life! But, wait a minute! Why should I worry about the dreaded "sweet potatoes"? Then the next question hits home! Like a stab to the heart!!! "Daddy, is it very hard to cook sweet potatoes on the Egg?" At this point in time, I asked my son-in-law to see if he could tap a little sense into her head, maybe with a 4X4! Maybe we could claim temporary insanity for her??? After a few more questions and replies, I broke down (believe me this hurt!!!) and e-mailed GFW for some guidance on Egging the (Yuk!) dreaded sweet potatoes! (I really thunk, we brought her up better than this!!!) [p]Why me? I didn't deserve this???[p]Seems as how the grandkids don't like carrots! And they really didn't care for the squash either! Both are excellent for vitamin "A" and other minerals! Good Momma! Looking out fer the little ones! Anyway she tried the (this is gona kill me yet!) sweet potatoes, and the kids loved them! Now, along with all the other goodies for the weekend, it appears I will be cooking sweet potatoes on the Egg! (sorry about that Eggs!) GFW responded quite decently (no "I told you so!" or chuckles between the answers) to my questions. Now, along with the other goodies, steaks 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" thick, pulled pork, fish, shrimp, double smoked ham and maybe even a brisket or a London Broil (complements of GFW again), I will be cooking some sweet potatoes! (Never, I mean never thought I'd be saying this!)[p]Take heed those of you with a feint heart though! This does not mean I have "converted"! It just means I'm gona try something for my daughter and grandkids! I mean, what else can I do? C~W, I can see you in the background thinkin' you've lost another one! Don't give up hope yet! I've cooked squash for the boys up at the deer shack for years, and I still don't like 'em! (the squash that is!)[p]Anyway, forgive my long post, but I figured I'd best bring it up, before someone else does! I am not "converting"! I'm just gona try 'em! That's all![p]
I will keep you all posted, and I will give them an honest shot! Really I will! ))[p]
Cheers,[p]Dr. Chicken.....(not ready for Dr. Crow, yet!) ))
