I’m my daddy’s only daughter
Being the only girl in a family with 3 brothers means you get a little spoiled sometimes.
I’m also my daddy’s good eater-I’m far less picky than my brothers. When my mom would go with Baby Brother to Canada to visit relatives every summer he’d make me delicious thai food that neither of them would eat.
When I worked on Sunday nights in high school, he’d make me my own little dish of dinner, just for me, and have it waiting in the oven when I got home.
Being a little spoiled meant I always ate well.
Whenever I make stew it reminds me of my daddy.
Instead he got “My daddy said so”. Do you really need more explanation than that?
“Boiled meat” sounds gross. I know some people cook their meat like that. But just say it “boiled meat”. Ick.
My parents perpetually have a bottle of wine open (my drinking is genetic friends), so there was always some around to add a swig into dinner. I didn’t, so I added beer
Alcohol makes your food more delicious. Plus, once it’s open you might as well have a drink…
Then you let it cook until the meat is falling apart tender. Then you add a few tablespoons of flour to thicken it. And some peas and corn, because your mommy taught you to eat your veggies.
You also don’t let your husband stir it. Because he will stir and stir and stir until the potatoes all dissolve. I learned that lesson the hard way.
Almost as happy as my daddy making me stew always did.
(I foolishly made the mistake or marrying someone my daddy thinks is fantastic. These days when I visit my daddy is off on a beer run with my husband, rather than making me dinner. Adulthood = less spoiled.)
Do you have something your parents would always make for you?
