A Special Birthday Dinner! Why Can’t The Birthday Boy Choose the Menu?
A special birthday dinner! Why can’t the birthday boy choose the menu? He’s finally old enough to make some great dinner choices.
The Grown Son had another birthday.
He requested tri-tip for dinner.
With corn bread and potatoes.
That’s way too many carbs in one meal.
Shouldn’t he get to choose the menu?
Yeah, he’s diabetic, but doesn’t he still deserve a special feast?
We’ll have cornbread and potatoes but only if he also agrees to a vegetable.
I held my ground.
“OK,” he agreed, “You can make green beans.”
I noted that he said that I can make them.
He did not say that he would eat them.
Yeah, I’m wise to his ways.
However, he did eat a serving of green beans with his dinner.
I guess enough trips around the sun has had a maturing effect on him.
Happy birthday, Kiddo!
