How to Make Toast

Before I begin my story, I'd like to let you all know that I'm a guest over at Chrys Fey's blog. We're talking about blogging and my life as a mom. Please stop by and visit!

Now for the story.

Last night, my son was in the kitchen. He had a glass measuring cup, into which he inserted a half a stick of butter.

"Dude," I said. "What are you doing?"

"Making toast."

I shook my had. "Making toast? With a half a stick of butter?"

"Yes, Mama. I'm making my special homemade toast. Watch."

He took two slices of bread and put them in the toaster. Then he put the measuring cup with butter in the microwave, and nuked it until the butter was in liquid form. By that time, the toast had popped. He took them out of the toaster, put them on a plate, and then poured the liquid butter over each of them.

But that wasn't all. He flipped them over and poured butter on the other side. Then he got out the blackberry jam and smothered each piece with it.

"There," he said when his creation was finished. "Perfect."

Then the boy ate it.

So there you go, ladies and gentlemen. Now you know how to make toast. Bubba style.

  1. Already visited Chrys this morning!
    He's a growing boy, so he can still do that. When he hits thirty, that fatty butter will come back to haunt him.

    1. No kidding! I will be limiting his buttery toast-making sessions!

  2. Is there anything he doesn't know/can't do?

    1. That's a good question. He seems to have popped out knowing and doing it all! ;0)

  3. Ha, I think I've tried that before. Tastes great!

    1. I'm sure it does - but it's not so great on the arteries!

  4. You didn't mention mess. Had to be a mess. Who cleaned it up?
    You did, didn't you? Kids spoil the parents, and that's a fact.

    1. The mess wasn't bad - a buttery measuring and knife, which went right into the dish washer.

    1. Surprisingly, not nearly as bad as some of the messes I've seen.

  6. A disaster in the kitchen but even I'm certain that this isn't the traditional way to make certain. Still, very inventive, like bubba's style.

    1. Then I highly advice against attempting to replicate and consume his concoction!

  9. Hi, dear Sherry! I see a bright future for your son, his name up in lights, a famous celebrity chef, host of his own cooking show on TV: Cooking Bubba Style. I can't wait to read his recipe for oven-baked cinnamon flavored ice cubes! :)

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend Sherry, you and your entire delightful family!

    1. Haha! Now that would be quite a concoction! I wonder how he'd pull of making oven-baked ice cubes. ;0)

  10. Wow! I guess he likes butter. My sister would probably enjoy that kind of toast.

    1. I think the butter was a little overdone, but otherwise, I'm sure it was quite good.

  11. Already visited Chrys. I am also going to try Bubba's style of making a perfect buttery toast.

    1. I'd advise cutting the butter to about half the amount Bubba used. :)

      Delete
  12. That's a neat idea! Might be a bit buttery for my taste though!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree. Probably an eight of the butter would've been just right.

      Delete
  13. Maybe Bubba's recipe will be an internet sensation!

    Replies
    1. Haha! And then we'll read about people dying of cardiac arrest from eating too much butter. Maybe this should be kept a secret!

  14. and then he became a fat kid in the morning :)

    1. If he eats many more pieces of toast like this, he certainly will do exactly that!

      Delete
  15. Ahh..my husband will give him a big applause. Jam and all that butter. Bubba's a true gourmand. :))

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, that's one way to do it. Just don't introduce him to spray butter, whatever you do.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Spray butter? I'd never heard of that. I'll be sure to make sure Bubba doesn't hear about it, either!

      Delete
  17. Well then. My gr-daughters will give this a try, when their mother is home with them.

    1. I'm sure they'll have fun doing it. Just tell them to cut down on the butter.

  18. The only 11 year old to get regular cholesterol checks has spoken (ha ha).

    What am I laughing at? I'm the one with high cholesterol....

    1. Haha! Yes, as a matter of fact, the boy does get regular cholesterol checks. We'll see how his next test turns out.

    1. No, but I'll have Bubba make you another batch right away! :)

  20. That's a lot of butter and jam, Bubba. I'm a little concerned about your health, but the toast sure sounds good.

    Love,

    1. I thought it would be soggy, too. But watching him eat it, it didn't look too bad. He must've toasted the bread on high so it was crispy.

      Delete
  23. Glad he enjoyed it and that it wasn't as soggy as I was picturing. He is too funny!

  26. Sounds good! Dunno about melting the butter like that, but I usually do butter/jam when I make my toast!

    1. I like butter and jam, too, but I think Bubba's method was overkill!

  27. I tried making this and my heart exploded. 10/10. Would eat again.

  28. Too cute.
    I asked my husband to make the kids cinnamon toast when they were little. The kids were complaining about how bitter it was. I asked him if he'd added any sugar and he said 'you didn't mention anything about sugar':)

    1. Haha! In our early years of marriage, that sounds like something my husband would've done. I think he knows better now.

  29. Kind of like something I might have made when I was a kid. I don't think I'd ever attempt it now.

    1. You can get away with eating stuff like that when you're young. Not so much when you're older.
