I've created TWO monsters!

So I had planned on lollipops, ABTs and MPDs for the game tonight. Just a family affair no guest, no travel. I let my 12 yr old have control of the menu on Thursday and it was a great success. He had fun and we had a good meal. Unbeknownst to me, he and his 8 yr old brother got together to plot the next cook. The younger one decided he would spatchcock a chicken with his favorite rub (DP Pineapple Head) and big brother would repeat the mashed potatoes he was so proud of on Thursday. Also, without telling her, they decided mama yolk was making sausage balls. Apparently, I'm chopped liver as I only got assistance duties.

oh well, I hadn't stocked up for the cook before I caught wind of this conspiracy, and if they want to get involved with the meals I'm all for it! So here we go! I'm sneaking in some MPDs anyway.

    Your one lucky man. My kids help out....eating.
  • Jeepster47Jeepster47 Posts: 3,827
    Yea, that's the prize for being a winner ... a stool ... or a MM.  Actually, if the kids keep showing an interest, a medium or a small might be a great investment.

  • @Jeepster47 you and I are on the same wavelength. I'm thinking they may need an egg. ;)

  • @johnkitchens it was mid forties and raining so moving stools around wasn't really in the cards.

    @Tinyfish it started with what's you favorite off the egg and progressed to what would you like to cook. I'm surprised they got so enthused.

  • @johnkitchens the question did come up, "what are we going to do if it's raining?" We're gonna cook! Was my answer.

  • I agree with some of the others here that you may be adding to your arsenal soon. They are going to want to cook while you cook soon. That is a great thing.
