What Wine Would you Serve With These, Red or White?

Sometimes it is extrememly difficult to be a parent. Sometimes, you have to be the heavy when your kids say something so outrageous that you can't keep it together. Every parent has a story about their children and this one is mine about Jack.

Jack has become obsessed with "potty" words. He works very hard to interject "butt", "poop", and "booty" into every conversation. We, obviously, discourage this. But, since Jack is a four-year old boy, he likes to try to needle me to see how I would react.

Not so long ago I was cooking dinner, let's say it was fish.

Jack:" What are you making for dinner?"
Mom: "fish"
Jack: "Noooooooooo! I don't WANT FISH FOR DINNER!!!!'
Mom: "Too bad, it is what is being served tonight"
Jack storms off. Jack returns.
Jack: "Mommy? May I have something else for dinner?"
Mom--not wanting to start another fit but thought I could tell him I would make his request tomorrow: "what would you like, Jack?"
Jack: "I think tonight, I would like buuuuuuuuuuuutt nuggets!"
Mom--trying to hold it together and not encourage this conversation: "I don't think that I know how to prepare those"
Jack: "They're easy, they are just like chicken nuggets but with poooooooop in them!"

After my spit-take, I had to leave the room.

Sounds DE-LISH! Think there is a recipe on epicurious.com?

Definitely white. It is summer, so you get the refreshment of a light white, plus if it's like chicken, white is a trusty standby. You get the added benefit of color contrast as well, always a benefit when meal planning.

That is hilarious, I hate when they catch you off gaurd like that and you can't help but laugh out loud.
I was curious how Eva's appointment went on Monday. Did you get a second opinion?

OMG...too funny. I love the potty talk conversations! I think I would serve Chardonnay - nothing compliments pooopy nuggets better than a drink that looks like pee pee.
