Last night, 11:00 p.m.
Me: Boys, turn off the t.v. and go to sleep!
Boys, age 13: But mom!
Me: What? What’s on?
First boy: Good Eats!
Second boy: And it’s new!
First boy: It’s about tenderloin.
So I let them watch it.
(They do have a small television in their room, but the v-chip is set so they can only watch programs rated for Y-7 and younger. (Food shows are usually rated for a general audience, I guess.) Then, they broke the remote control, so now I can’t even change the setting, nor override a blocked channel, which serves them right.)

Finally, this week draws to a close. We are down to the final two weeks of school. I’m just pretending that I have longer than six weeks until Vacation Bible School starts because if I realized that sad truth, I might run away from home until August.

Good Eats is a fascinating program. Alton Brown is entertaining in his own special way and I always learn something.
HEY! nice picture, Im in Astoria so it close to home
food channel rocks!
My brother makes the most delicious, fall off the bone ribs courtesy of Alton Brown. I think he’s kinda goofy (Alton Brown, not by brother) but his rib recipe kicks behaunkus.
ps – I still think that sentence is brilliant.
Daughter and I really love those food shows too. I’m glad you let your boys watch…never know what can happen ;o)
LOVE THE PIC!
Ooo, I just love Good Eats! It’s like watching a science experiment and a cooking show, all in one! 😮 )
