After I finished cooking this recipe I looked around my kitchen (and my neglected house), saw the mess I had made, and just wanted to cry.
I always say things like, “It looks like a tornado went through here…” or “Is there a family a bears living here? Who made this mess?!…”
But this was different.
This was worse.
I thought about just bulldozing the house and starting from scratch.
There is something about “sticks” that make food more desirable to my munchkins… a boring turkey sandwich becomes exciting and gourmet when I cut it into squares and stick a toothpick into each one. Juice is yummy in a glass, but freeze it on a stick so you can lick it?! SO MUCH BETTER… right? Candy… so fun to eat. Candy on a stick (i.e. A Lollipop)… a special treat. Thus, chicken served right on the skewers it was cooked on… MAGNIFICENT!!
I love when they get excited about their dinner before it enters their little mouths.
When we go to a Thai restaurant I pretty much know what I’m going to order before I walk in the door…
