BBQ RULES

 

 

We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, as it's the only type of cooking a 'real' man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:


Routine...


(1)
The woman buys the food.
(2)
The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3)
The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer or soda in hand.

Here comes the important part:


(4)
THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

More routine....


(5)
The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(6)
The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

Important again:


(7)
THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

More routine....


(8)
The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(9)
After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:

(10)
Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(11)
The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off.' And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....

LOL...I'm going to email your whole page to my hubby...it reads as though scripted from my house.  Very funny and oh so true....I'm in a three day countdown now, the kids leave on Saturday for your neck of the woods. Part of me wishes I could follow them...it is  so hard to cut the apron strings on the youngest one...love, Sandi

I missed this one...so true I guess...although I guess our household is somewhat different with two former chefs...
After we first graduated it got quite "heated" in MY kitchen when hubby decided to move in on my territory.
A wise Chef from school gave us good advice...pick you jobs to do and stick to that.

Blessings,
Ljj

Oh, jeez, isn't that the truth?  LOL   Inspite of that being the truth, I really do enjoy grilled dinners during the summer.  It's such an easy clean up and the food tastes so good.
