I’m a Food Network junkie and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Normally it’s just the girls and I who enjoy it – but yesterday was different.
Maybe it was the time of day – late afternoon.
Maybe it was the weather outside – cold and rainy.
Whatever it was – the boys stayed through the entire cooking show.
At first I thought it was a good thing – now I’m not so sure. The show was all about cheese and on the menu was a gourmet mac and cheese and a pretty upscale grilled cheese sandwich.
My kids were drooling…and asking for supper.
Our traditional Sunday evening meal is popcorn and sandwiches. So I set out the sandwich stuff and was starting to pop the popcorn when the kids starting coming in with their sandwich ideas. The first three were quite normal and achievable – a simple grilled cheese. No surprise there.
The fourth was something totally different.
Matt waited till everyone else was done – then he grabbed the cutting board, and the skillet with a strange look on his face.
I asked him what he planned to make. He answered, “I don’t know yet – but I feel like creating!”
And create he did.
He ended up with a grilled chicken, cheese, onion, banana and Louisiana hot sauce sandwich.
Yes – banana and onion. And hot sauce.
He ate it. The whole thing. And declared it pretty tasty.
I don’t know – time will tell.
But I do that mac and cheese has been requested for supper – and Matt will not be making it!
