Thursday Thirteen ... minus two

Mom's friend Lana sent this interesting perspective on the roles of 'beans an' the art of grilling.

Since Mom does so furry little cooking of any form (includin' "nuking"), we REALLY don't think that she has any right to complain 'bout how boy 'beans operate grills.

However, since she's the one with the thumbs an' Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys stinky goodness is a CANNED delight, we're not gonna tick her off by throwin' her "lack o'cookin' skills" in her face.

Nope ... That wouldn't be prudent.

So ... here it is:  
The Thursday Thirteen (minus two) 
of the roles of boy an' girl 'beans 
when "grilling" is concerned.

As spring weather improves and barbeque units are rolled out of garages all over North America, this is a good time to review these few simple BBQ Rules ...


When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

(1) The woman buys the food.

(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.

(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - drink in hand.

Here comes the important part:

More routine...
(5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another drink while he deals with the situation.

Important again:

More routine...
(8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.

(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. 

And most important of all:
(10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.

(11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off.' And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

An experienced barbeque jockey commented: "Hey! Turning meat and drinking beer is harder than it looks."

MOL! But ya really oughtta see a Man alone doing it. Ours does the whole thing hisself. Now ya gotta unnerstand that we dont like much of the stuff he eats. But the udder day, he cooked meat (chicken) outside, made a salad of potatoes, made a salad of dead pastas, made a salad of leafy-like stuff, cooked some veggies stabbed on a kinna skinny nife-thing, cooked some pineaple chunks on other skinny nife things, AND cooked unspicy meat pieces (inside away from the nasty smoke) just for us.

Fer hisself alone, too (well, an us) and then cleant eferything.

Well, he hasta. We're sure not gonna do it! So he does.

The Big Thing here... I have to say I laughed too. I know too many guys who are JUST like that. I never understood it. And I'm not big on cleaning, but I do what has to be done. The cats just refuse to do it... LOL!

You mean it's possible to cook stuff in something other than a microwave? This is news to me.
