Dad Food Remix

The kids have figured me out. They realize that everything I fix them is going to include some form of Macaroni and Cheese, Hot Dogs, or Chili. They've begun requesting fancy stuff like McDonald's and....well pretty much anything else. They've become food snobs. Why just this morning my daughter opted out of asking me for any breakfast (left-overs from last night) and made herself a bowl of Fruit Loops and poured in some chocolate milk. It looked repulsive. If they're expecting me to conform to exotic things like that then they are out of luck. It did give me a little hope for her ability to one day get on Iron Chef.

I dated an Iron Chef once. Technically, he didn't win. It's pretty much the reason that we broke up.

Have you forgotten fish sticks and french fries? Beans and cornbread? Or (perhaps before your time) tomato soup and popcorn? I like to get real fancy and serve Ravioli (Chef Boyardi not store brand) and salad-in-a-bag. That's living!

I've actually got about 7-10 pounds of battered fish pieces in the freezer right now. They were on clearance at the store a few weeks back. It's a good possibility that we will be eating them sometime this weekend. We don't have any french fries at the moment so we might have to use Mac and Cheese as a side dish.

Have you heard about this new heroine cocktail that's all the rave with the kids. It's called "cheese."

Fringes-They often wish that I had just sent them to bed without forcing them to eat what I can concoct.
CyberD-You are all about the rave, and cheese.
Tk-It's what I do. Thanks for coming by.
