The other night I made a VERY good baked chicken recipe. It was basted with a butter, thyme, garlic, and parsley mixture and baked over sliced potatoes and onions. It was good...though a little on the greasy side. We also had corn casserole, peas, and Noah requested biscuits. So....I knew better than to expect Noah to actually eat the baked chicken so I made him some chicken nuggets to eat instead.
WELL......low and behold he declares that he doesn't like those kind of chicken nuggets.
WHATEVER! He has eaten them as a meal alternative forever it seems. They are just basic Tyson chicken nuggets from the freezer. Nothing "fancy" about them (like the honey battered ones I bought once...major rejection!).
After telling him that he couldn't have another bite of his biscuit until he ate a few bites of chicken, he decides that it is actually the outside he doesn't like, he will eat the inside. So, he proceeds to "peel" the outside from the nugget, quite unsuccessfully. He may have gotten a miniscule pinch of meat, but he did leave lots of crust on his plate. I figure I could do a better job and actually give him a sizeable chunk of meat, so I peeled the outside off the nugget. It was pretty easy, and I showed Corey what a good job I had done with there being a VERY good size portion of the plain white meat left. I pick up another nugget then STOP.
WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!.................................................
I am sitting here, PEELING A CHICKEN NUGGET!?!!!?!??
What is WRONG with me?! It isn't enough that I prepared a different kind of meat knowing that he wouldn't touch the "green basted" chicken, but now have reduced myself to peeling nuggets?
Never again, I assure you. He did eat the chicken, though.
On a completely different subject:
I have read 10 books since Easter Sunday. No wonder I have spent the entire day cleaning our house!!!!!!!!
They have been really good books! :) Thanks Bethany...I will be ready to switch when you come back in a couple of weeks!
