Food Art for Supper

September 24, 2012

Tonight my eleven year old treated us to appetizers instead of dinner. She toothpicked hot dog chunks, grapes, and nubs of Velveeta cheese together to form a house with a tall grape chimney. All was perched precariously on a bed of shredded mozzarella.  Sorry I didn’t take a picture, but your imagination will suffice. Home-made bread completed the meal, as her baked chicken took an additional hour to finish baking. I realize that I’m going to have to teach my daughters a few tips and tricks for meal preparation:

1. Gravy gets made LAST instead of first when preparing dinner.

2. Frozen chicken right out of the freezer is going to take at least 2.5 hours to thaw and prepare. Twenty minutes  before mealtime is a train wreck waiting to happen.

3. A can of cold chopped collards does not make an appetizing side dish.

4. “Doing dishes” means washing off the table and counters instead of leaving them to the kitchen fairy.

5. Stacking bowls right-side up in the dishwasher leads to unpleasant “soup” that is not edible.

    “4. “Doing dishes” means washing off the table and counters instead of leaving them to the kitchen fairy.”

    If I leave food on the counters, my kitchen fairies seem to closely resemble ants. But maybe it’s just me…

    too funny… 🙂 I give them an A for a great attitude of loving their momma and wanting to be just like the awesome woman she is! YOU go girl. Love you. Lunch soon… and oh yeah… pizza in that groovy oven. We’ll bring some toppings, too.
