There is one duty about being a wife that I have never enjoyed and still don't. Dave sympathizes and helps when able, but it really is my wifey duty and when I do it, I can rest in peace for the rest of the day. :-) That duty is packing lunch. Dave must be the easiest person to pack for but, I still don't care for the job. He loves cold leftovers! And for the last few months, he prefers a light lunch - milkshake, fruit, nuts...... Well, this past Friday, I made his usual milkshake. There was some that didn't fit in the thermos so he poured it in a cup and took a sip. He immediately responded with "what did you put in this?" all the while pulling tiny bits of "something" from his mouth. I said, "frozen bananas, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt and milk." "Well, it tastes like lunch meat!" I took a sip and it certainly did taste like lunch meat! Gross! Here what I thought were bananas, were really hotdogs! Now, just wait! Don't go thinking I am loony! I did have my glasses on and yes, I was awake and yes, I really do love my husband! We buy bananas by the case, peel them, break them in half and freeze them on trays. After they are frozen, we put them in ziplok bags and whenever a milkshake is desired, we reach into the freezer and take out a few and put them in blender with other ingredients. After a time in the freezer they can turn a light brown and get a little frosty. I knew that we were almost out of bananas that morning, but ahhh haaa! I found a bag with just 2 halves left and I just tilted the bag and dumped them right into the blender! Waalaa! A delicious nutritious milkshake, or so I thought. Well, every now and then, Ben brings home some goodies from the butcher shop and some of the goodies were hotdogs and guess what? we put them in ziplok bags in the freezer.
Here is a test for you......is this a bag of bananas or hotdogs?
Well, they are......sƃopʇoɥ
Anyway, we had a really good laugh that morning, and that afternoon, and the next day! I told him that my blunder was worse than his blunder and maybe we could call it even up. You see, one day I was looking high and low for my liquid stevia. Finally, one of the boys found it in the freezer. Who put the stevia in the freezer? You guessed it! My man! I reminded him that it only belongs in the fridge (and actually he got it out of there). Well, about 2 days later - no stevia. Couldn't find it again! In the freezer! After another reminder...thought it was all good. Well, the next day he went to put it away again and was all ready to put it in the ....... where? THE FREEZER! The boys were giving him a hard time and he is now thinking about pressing harassment charges. ;-)
Saturday night Dave wanted to have a cookout on the campfire. He politely informed me that since I put the hotdogs in his milkshake, all I can have is grilled bananas. ummmm....would that really be a terrible punishment? Certainly didn't sound as bad as hotdogs in milkshakes. Maybe I should give it a try.
Actually, they were delicious! I had sprinkled some honey and cinnamon on top before grilling. So, which would you choose? A grilled banana in a bun or a hotdog with strawberries and blueberries?
Until next time...............
