Hidden Chicken

When we make the boys pizza I like to cut up tiny pieces of chicken and hide it in the sauce under the cheese. That way they’re getting protein and we don’t have to argue about it. Gage can now eat Bob’s Red Mill all-purpose  flour since adding potatoes to his diet. We made his pizza crust using that as the main flour for the fist time. When Nathan took the pizza out of the oven I asked him if the crust was gooey, using egg replacer it typically is. Next thing I know Nathan cuts off a small piece and shoves  it in his mouth! I about had a heart attack and yelled what are you doing?!  He looked at me puzzled then realized what he had done. He makes a mad dash for the sink and spits it out. Luckily he only had the crust and not a piece with chicken. Chicken trauma averted.

Grilling for a Benefit

Nathan was asked to be the grill man at a cancer benefit. He agreed since he loves to grill. Although, a little disappointed once he found out he was only grilling hot dogs, he still did it. So as the grilling began I chased the boys everywhere while they played. We made our way back over to Nathan and I noticed he was taking ice from the cooler and sort of washing his hands and arms. At first I just thought he was cleaning himself off. Then I thought “Oh no, did he burn himself?” So I went over and asked what he was doing. Poor guy had hives up and down his arms and hands. Turns out the hot dogs had chicken in them. I had never seen him react like this before. He had cooked chicken on the grill for the boys and myself and never had a reaction. So he basically took a step back and let the other two guys handle the dogs until it was over. I wonder what will happen next time he does chicken for us.

A few side notes while at the benefit:

Charlie asked if he could go request the Christian band to play Luke Bryan’s “Rain is a Good Thing”

Charlie was later blown up by a storm trooper. He was so excited.

The benefit was for  – a children’s book inspired by McKenzie Brownlee—-Its a celebration and memory of a courageous little girl who fought a STRONG battle with cancer. All author’s profits go to the McKenzie’s Smile Foundation. Purchase one today to donate to her foundation!

Two other authors were showcased at the benefit as well.      and
