A Big Thank You and Breakfast Concoction

First of all, I'd like to give all of you a huge thank you for making the launch of Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China successful!  I truly appreciate all the shares, the participation in the blog fest, the great comments, and the sales! You guys rock!

Here's a book trailer if you'd like to have a look:


Now for the story.

My boy, Bubba, has a creative streak, as I'm sure you know. His creativity often manifests itself in the kitchen.

The other day I found a dirty skillet sitting on the stove. I couldn't figure out what the heck the remains were.

"Dude," I said. "What was this?"

He walked over, peered at the crusted-over slop and grinned. "Eggs with chocolate syrup and bananas!"

I grimaced. "Seriously?"

He nodded.

"So, how was it?"

"Delicious. The best stuff ever. Ten out of ten stars!" 


What do you think? Would you try that concoction? What was the weirdest concoction you've ever eaten or made?

    Bananas and chocolate yes, but not with eggs.

  2. Hi, Sherry!

    That promo video does the trick, dear friend! The mysterious music and dramatic pictures and illustrations are compelling. They arouse curiosity and trigger the urge to buy the book, take the journey and discover the answers. Ten years in the making, this project was done right, every aspect carefully thought out. Congratulations, Sherry!

    Question: When will Bubba release his first cook book? There's another book idea for you guys! :) It is never a good thing to find "remains" in a skillet on the stove. :) The weirdest concoction I have ever eaten was a few times I ran out of milk and poured grape juice on my corn flakes at breakfast.

    Have a fabulous week, dear friend Sherry!

    1. Bubba should release a cookbook. I bet it would be a best seller! How was cornflakes with grape juice?

  4. Um, NO, I think I'd skip that particular concoction. The strangest food that was ever concocted in our house was made by our daughter when she was still a pre-schooler. My hubby came home from work for lunch every day, and she wanted to make him a sandwich. She did. It was a peanut butter, jelly, ham and cheese sandwich. He ate it, too.

    I ordered your book last week, but for whatever reason, it hasn't been shipped yet. After I read it, I'll pass it on to one of our grandchildren. (It's Grandma's prerogative to read their books first!)

    1. It says it's out of stock on Amazon. Happened on the second day, and we're still waiting for them to reorder. Sorry for the wait, but thanks so much for the purchase!

      The sandwich sounds like quite a masterpiece!

  5. Nope, that sounds kinda gross. Does he not clean up after himself?

  8. I'd pass on the chocolate and bananas. I occasionally put soy sauce on my eggs. My son (age 4) thought that was the weirdest thing. I told him it wasn't any weirder than him putting ketchup on his.

    1. My son put ketchup, onions, and peanuts on his eggs. Now that's weird!

  9. Your son's culinary experiments remind me of my son when he was a wee-one, made "chocolate soup" with tabasco in it. it was a hit with him, and him alone... Hooray for a great book release!
