Food for thought..and fussing
What's great about dogs is they are happy as a clam to eat the same thing day after day with no complaint. Cats, too, though I know that for some felines can be fussy. But The Boss, he has to make comments. I'm a good cook, but sometimes when I try something a bit new, like cabbage seasoned with an exotic spice like CARAWAY seeds, he pokes around saying, "what's those black things in there," or "I don't like it, it has some kind of FUNNY taste." I guess he's more like a dog than I thought, because he'd be happy with a meatloaf Monday and a turkey Tuesday. A way to a man's heart isn't always his stomach, but for a dog, it surely is! So, I think when it comes to something new, men want it in other rooms besides the kitchen!
This morning, we ran through a usual "Groundhog Day" discussion. I'm feeding the dogs who appreciate my kitchen skills, and he says, "I'll make the coffee, then get the paper." I say, "NO, I'll make the coffee while you get the paper."
You see, he thinks I make it too strong and I think he makes it to weak. My argument (and I am always right) is that he can ADD water to his cup to weaken it, but what am I supposed to do to beef up his watery, weak brew? I wouldn't have dogs if I had to discuss every dish with them as to why it is the way it is, but with Boss's you have to explain everything!
So who gives YOU the most trouble when it comes to food (or coffee?)
Picture above is of Peanut ON my kitchen counter. I had moved furniture out of the living room to make way for the new furniture and had the ottoman up against the counter. Not one to miss a food opportunity, he jumps up to see what delicacies might be hidden beside the bread. The Boss would have had a stroke had he been there to see that! And I'd have brought him to with a REAL cup of coffee!
