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?"
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.
Already visited Chrys this morning!ReplyDelete
He's a growing boy, so he can still do that. When he hits thirty, that fatty butter will come back to haunt him.
No kidding! I will be limiting his buttery toast-making sessions!Delete
Is there anything he doesn't know/can't do?ReplyDelete
That's a good question. He seems to have popped out knowing and doing it all! ;0)Delete
Ha, I think I've tried that before. Tastes great!ReplyDelete
I'm sure it does - but it's not so great on the arteries!Delete
You didn't mention mess. Had to be a mess. Who cleaned it up?ReplyDelete
You did, didn't you? Kids spoil the parents, and that's a fact.
The mess wasn't bad - a buttery measuring and knife, which went right into the dish washer.Delete
haha that must have left a bit of a mess.ReplyDelete
Surprisingly, not nearly as bad as some of the messes I've seen.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Bubba has a style all his own!Delete
Ha! That's some buttery toast. Does he have any other special recipes to share? :)ReplyDelete
I'm sure he does. I'll keep you posted.Delete
At my age that sandwich would kill meReplyDelete
Then I highly advice against attempting to replicate and consume his concoction!Delete
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! :)ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend Sherry, you and your entire delightful family!
Haha! Now that would be quite a concoction! I wonder how he'd pull of making oven-baked ice cubes. ;0)Delete
Wow! I guess he likes butter. My sister would probably enjoy that kind of toast.ReplyDelete
I think the butter was a little overdone, but otherwise, I'm sure it was quite good.Delete
Already visited Chrys. I am also going to try Bubba's style of making a perfect buttery toast.ReplyDelete
I'd advise cutting the butter to about half the amount Bubba used. :)Delete
That's a neat idea! Might be a bit buttery for my taste though!ReplyDelete
I agree. Probably an eight of the butter would've been just right.Delete
Yes, my boy is certainly that! ;0)Delete
Maybe Bubba's recipe will be an internet sensation!ReplyDelete
Haha! And then we'll read about people dying of cardiac arrest from eating too much butter. Maybe this should be kept a secret!Delete
and then he became a fat kid in the morning :)ReplyDelete
If he eats many more pieces of toast like this, he certainly will do exactly that!Delete
Ahh..my husband will give him a big applause. Jam and all that butter. Bubba's a true gourmand. :))ReplyDelete
He knows the good stuff!Delete
Well, that's one way to do it. Just don't introduce him to spray butter, whatever you do.ReplyDelete
Spray butter? I'd never heard of that. I'll be sure to make sure Bubba doesn't hear about it, either!Delete
Well then. My gr-daughters will give this a try, when their mother is home with them.ReplyDelete
I'm sure they'll have fun doing it. Just tell them to cut down on the butter.Delete
The only 11 year old to get regular cholesterol checks has spoken (ha ha).ReplyDelete
What am I laughing at? I'm the one with high cholesterol....
Haha! Yes, as a matter of fact, the boy does get regular cholesterol checks. We'll see how his next test turns out.Delete
Anything left for me, Sherry? Hahaha!ReplyDelete
No, but I'll have Bubba make you another batch right away! :)Delete
That's a lot of butter and jam, Bubba. I'm a little concerned about your health, but the toast sure sounds good.ReplyDelete
Bubba won't be replicating that exact recipe any time soon! ;0)Delete
It's the ONLY way. Yep.ReplyDelete
Tastes good, but it's a one way ticket to clogged arteries and the hospital!Delete
Interesting approach. Sounds soggy!ReplyDelete
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
Glad he enjoyed it and that it wasn't as soggy as I was picturing. He is too funny!ReplyDelete
He has some unusual ways of doing things!Delete
Got a belly ache just reading it. But hey, he should enjoy it while he can.ReplyDelete
He seemed to enjoy it immensely!Delete
I now know hope to make toast! :-)ReplyDelete
All these years I bet you weren't doing it right. ;0)Delete
Sounds good! Dunno about melting the butter like that, but I usually do butter/jam when I make my toast!ReplyDelete
I like butter and jam, too, but I think Bubba's method was overkill!Delete
I tried making this and my heart exploded. 10/10. Would eat again.ReplyDelete
Haha! I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I wouldn't want you to have a heart attack over it!Delete
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':)
Haha! In our early years of marriage, that sounds like something my husband would've done. I think he knows better now.Delete
Kind of like something I might have made when I was a kid. I don't think I'd ever attempt it now.ReplyDelete
You can get away with eating stuff like that when you're young. Not so much when you're older.Delete
Sounds yum! (I LOVE butter.)ReplyDelete
I'll have Bubba make you a batch. ;0)Delete
