Well, I likes my eggs runny, and I can't get them at very many places anymore.[p]And I like my meat rare, and I can't get that everywhere anymore.[p]And I like to drive a stick shift, and it's hard to find those these days.[p]So.... All of these things my wife hates.[p]We have a 16 month old. He and I have been sort of working with each other on the side on what he likes to eat. Anyway, the other day, I made hamburgers for everyone and two funny things happened.[p]First was, my wife looked at me and said "that's too much food". I had bought about a pound and a half of ground chuck, and I was using it to form 4 burgers. I looked at her and said, well, you forget about James.[p]She said, he won't eat very much! His attention span and his tummy usually only last for two or three bites....[p]So, I went out and cooked burgers. The two smallest I set aside, the big ones I brought in for the two of us. I realized I had left wife's a little too rare. So, it was back to the egg for that one. [p]She then looks at the child's burger, which he has ripped open and is laying into with both hands, none hitting the floor. She then looks at me and says "You have been working with him like you did with eggs, huh."[p]
I told her I had no idea what she was talking about. [p]There were no leftovers. Anyway, I got some time before he has to learn how to drive. Hope they still make stick shifts then.[p]Here's to careful food handling, and fun with the family around the grill.
