Mrs Duck is no Paula Deen

Scene:Thursday night,My wife on the couch, me fiddling around at the desktop computer in the mini office off the living room, stove and oven on in the kitchen.

Mrs Duck:Whatcha doing?

Sparky: Me? Oh just checking some blogs until dinner is ready.

MD:Hmmph, I guess I am the one that is cooking tonight, since you are checking blogs.

S:Huh? Cooking? You are just boiling water, I would not exactly call that cooking.

MD:Oh no, not just the water, but the tater tots are in the oven too!

Note:Dinner that night was Stouffers Creamed Chipped Beef over Tater Tots or Toast, depending on who was eating it.

Hmmm, gotta side with the Missus on this one. I'll bet Paula Deen cooks up a mean Tater Tot casserole...

It's reversed in my house. ;)

What is chipped beef actually?

Desert Songbird said...

Yeah, and my hubby is no Bobby Flay.

Sparky Duck said...

Rhia-Yes, because butter makes everything better

Amy-I am a Renaissance Man

Bird-Well, Have you let him expand upon his gift for cooking? I think not

Sometimes you sound like you're 25, and sometimes you sound like you're 65, and in the cast of Pickles (newspaper comic-strip). Which is it?

And what's wrong with chipped beef on toast?
As long as someone else is cooking - I'm lovin' it.

Mr. Wylie has one dish. Toast. Yup, that's it!
