Three Different Dinners

United States
August 4, 2016 3:52pm CST
I took out pork chops to defrost but my grandson said he'd rather have hot dogs if I didn't mind. Throwing hot dogs on the grill is easy so I agreed. My daughter isn't a big fan of pork chops and since I was making hot dogs on the grill she asked if it would be too much trouble to grill her a burger. Sure why not!! Tonight I feel like a short order cook and after all my hard work I know they'll be happy to do the dishes

Yep, you are a mighty fine short order cook, in my opinion! Their doing the dishes is the best payment for your skills.

That's the least they can do - the dishes Edit - Oops - just seen Marlina has said the same thing.

@maryilynda1225 I think you are pretty super doing that! I had sausages in the microwave! Too hot to put in the oven my veggie chicken nuggets and french fries! Hope the kids do the dishes for you! A nice break for you, but admit i actually love washing dishes!

I'm sure no one is going to want to wash the dishes but in actuality they really only have to load the dishwasher. I'd much rather cook than clean up any day

@Marilynda1225 Yes, my mom was like that. But she hated to cook, also but she was a superb cook and better baker! I made my first successful cooking a pasta salad two days ago! I loved cooking it! I changed it around a bit by adding peas, though! I don't have a dishwasher, so I hand washed the dishes!

I certainly hope that "they" will do the dishes for you. That's the least they can do!

I never cooked different meals when my kids were growing up but I guess as I got older it didn't bother me so much especially for my grandkids

Did you cook the pork chops on the grill too? That would make them taste really good. Hopefully your daughter and grandson left your kitchen nice and clean for you.
