The way to a man’s heart?

on October 6, 2013

Ming’s Sunday breakfast: I spread half an avocado on two pieces of wholemeal toast, then cooked eight bacon rashers, two sausages, three eggs and one tomato. It took me around 10 minutes to prepare. It took Ming exactly four minutes to consume.

I took Anthony out to the Dome this afternoon where he demolished an enormous piece of chocolate mousse cake with extra cream. I sipped my coffee and watched in amazement.

After taking Ants back to the nursing lodge and settling him into his room, I came home to find Ming sitting in the living room hungry. I am not sure if he has forgotten where the kitchen is, or forgotten how to open the refrigerator which generally has food in it, but he appears to have some sort of mental block when it comes to feeding himself. So I gave him his requested snack of strawberries and cream with some reluctance. He ate it unreluctantly.

    Hahaha. Sounds exactly like my partner. There is plenty of food in the fridge but when it comes to eating it he’s all, “can you make it for me?” hahahaha

    Dang Jules…how does one eat such a breakfast and meet the day with any energy? Fun post xo

  4. Ok that breakfast looks amazing!

    Full breakfast, nothing can beat that … but I couldn’t eat every morning – never had it with avocado *smile I could have a big piece of chocolate cake for breakfast nearly every morning and with strawberries I could live every day, but without the cream. You men love their food … love men that can eat.
    Anthony are looking great on the photo.

    I’m speechless (for once).

    I’m glad the men in your life are eating well. I hope you have a minute here and there to produce something nourishing for yourself.

  9. Nothing more fun than cooking for teenage boys! Glad everyone enjoyed their treats.

    Julie, that was a feast fit for a beast LOL LOL. I know you did it with love and kindness in your heart. Please take care, and have a pleasant day. — Bill

  11. I know exactly how you feel with my own men. šŸ™‚

  12. You’re a good woman and one after my own heart. Feeding people is sometimes a chore, but food is nurture, right? (I can’t believe their appetites! Wow–that’s a LOT of food!)

  13. Judy says:

    I’m hungry! I sure can relate to feeding those hungry hearts. I was really good at that, too. I see strawberries in my sleep. You are a very nurturing woman. What I want to know is, did you eat anything yummy? I was usually tasting things as I went along, never really indulging with enjoyment. But I’m sure I consumed more calories by stress eating!

    He is still a growing boy.. and there is nothing like the food that Mom makes…

  15. What a breakfast! Think the avo would tip it over the edge as being possible to finish but that boy should know how spoiled he is. Anthony didn’t do half bad too.

  16. Mouth watering dishes šŸ˜€ I love your comments about Ming not being able to find the kitchen. The men in my household occasionally develop the same kitchen-blindness šŸ™‚ Ant looks lovely in the picture.

  17. Terry says:

    just write slave in black letters across your forehead!!! LOL

  18. I still contend my husband married me cause I never finish the food on my plate so he usually gets a plate and a half of food

  19. I had three boys and a hyperactive husband and during the boys teens the volume of food consumed was astronomical. Men and boys, sometimes it seems they think of nothing lese except food.

  20. tersiaburger says:

    Your boys are lucky to have you!

  21. Now that looks like a breakfast I would love except for the avocado I don’t like avocado

  22. Breakfast of champions! Very nice photo of Ants. Those desserts look yummy.

  23. Wow, your men are well fed! I hope my kids know how to whip up a meal when they grow up. Otherwise, I might feed them my leftovers or a few crumbs. šŸ˜‰

  24. Lynda says:

    Too funny, Julie, but what did you have? Only coffee? šŸ˜‰

  25. Gosh, you are such a good mom and wife! And I will take the avocado. Don’t let anyone else tell you to leave it out!

  26. Judith Post says:

    I think of feeding people as a way of making them feel loved. Nate knows how to cook, but sometimes when he comes to our house hungry, I know he wants to feel loved–and so I feed him.

  27. TBM says:

    Geez, Ming can eat faster than me. I inhale my food, but not that fast. I would love a breakfast like that. And the dessert and strawberry and cream … I’m hungry …where’s the fridge/chef?

  28. Wow! That is a breakfast of champions! Glad to hear Anthony can still enjoy food with a good appetite. Pleasure in small things.

  29. dcwisdom says:

    Wow! Somebody should hire you out as a chef! Beautiful, manly plate!
