My, what watching “The Food Network” can do!
This might embarrass Matt but I never expected to ever see his feminine side. He did sort of sometimes walk like a girl but I never would have thought that he would be spending hours over the stove making cookies, grilling, frying baking… you name it.
Truthfully, he’s pretty good at this sort of stuff. I never imagined twice baked potatoes, caprese salad, grilled pork chops, broccoli. He even made broccoli taste pretty durn good.
Once, when he was seven I simply asked him to put some water on for coffee. I thought he knew what I meant. He seemed to have done what I told him. He went to the kitchen, came back to the livingroom and plopped down on the couch. In a while I said, “Did you put the water on?” He said, “Yep.” I could hear something in the kitchen. ‘Is that water running?,” I asked. He said, “Yep, you told me to put the water on for coffee.” Matt always had trouble connecting the dots. This indicates a big improvement, not only in culinary skills but also in logic.
