What makes my boys happy?

A FULL REFRIGERATOR,


AND A WELL STOCKED PANTRY.

I RECENTLY ASKED MY SON, JONATHAN:

ARE YOU EATING TO LIVE OR LIVING TO EAT?

AND HE SAID:

THIS A TRICK QUESTION, ISN'T IT?

FOOD . . . THE WAY TO A BOY'S HEART.

You know how I have salsa issues? I think you might have mustard issues...

Tiziana said...

Ah.Ah. Meno male che il tuo frigorifero è grande con tre ragazzi da sfamare.
Devo fare la stessa domanda a Luciano.

GrandmaK said...

You got it!!! Very funny! VERY funny! Cathy

Bia said...

Tiziana: POVERO LUCIANO!!!

Suburban: yikes, I hadn't even thought of that. but yes, spicy brown mustard, classic yellow mustard, and honey mustard. mustard choices keeps us from using mayonnaise.

:D ahahah so funny!!
Although I notice a slight problem: only ONE jar of nutella???

Ua said...

Ummm... Bia... I hate to break the news to you, but one bag of chips and one bag of pretzels is NOT a "well-stocked pantry" when you have 3 boys and a husband! Although you're doing OK on the cereal...

Missy said...

I once heard "A boy can eat you out of house & home!" Too true - a way to a boy's heart is food!!!

Lisa said...

Oh, wow. Your tidy fridge and pantry have totally shamed me, Bia. I know what I'm doing tomorrow... (Gotta make room for my eating machines, all of whom will be home from school soon, anyhow...)

Laura said...

Like Lisa...I'm feeling a bit self conscious now.
I bet my husband is starving.

My son is 22, and every time he opens the fridge he sighs. I want to smack him! He's a vegetarian, and it's so hard to know what to buy him, and he's picky on top of that.

Sigh (from me!)

Still, I will miss him when he goes back to school in three weeks, and he will miss "free" groceries!

Bia:

Tienes mucha razón! Los hombres tenemos nuestro cerebro en el estómago.

Te acuerdas de May feelings? Aquí te paso la versión 2009 que han hecho estos chicos. Y está tan buena como la anterior. Sobre todo si nos sirve para rezar.

I only wish I could keep my fridge and pantry filled like that. The second that I get home from the grocery my kids start to pounce. AND they bring their friends.

And good gracious, you pantry is sooo ogranized. Thanks now I have something else to put on my "To Do List". Need to get husband to work on that.

E said...

Men too. Add one other component
.........

And between the two you can keep them happy forever.

Oh Bia, look what a nice organized pantry you have -- and I spotted the NUTELLA!!!

And what did that last...one hour? And I only say that because you know, I have boys too!

Hugs!
