    Hubby can't cook, so I asked him to chop three onions for the potato salad and baked beans. As I walked through the living room, this is what I saw:

      LOL  Makes perfect sense to me...although without the mask I just generally do it underwater.

        The poor man can't even use a microwave. If I die before he does, I worry that one day they'll find him dead in the house from starvation.

    BTW, I've tried to explain the potato thing to him on NUMEROUS occasions...but I guess this is the manly way to chop onions! lol

    Required items:

    safety goggles
    respirator
    cigarettes
    cold beer
    car show on TV

    habee, who's doing the BBQ?  I mean, if he can't handle a few tears from the onions, is he really gonna be able to stand the heat at the smoker?! wink

          When I invite him to do so. lol. I let him see this thread. He's a good sport.

      Actually, it's a team effort. I trim,rub/marinate the meat, and wrap it. He starts the smoker. I usually prebake the ribs low and slow in the oven and then tranfer them to the grill to brown and get some smoke flavor. Cory, my son-in-law, usually does the charcoal grilling.

    It is against the Man Code to cry, unless while watching Old Yeller or Clannad ~After Story~. Aside from that, crying is the Cardinal Man Sin.

    I love the way men and women think differently. Women just plow through, suffering if they must... enduring till the jobs finished. Child birth taught us that. Men refuse to suffer any unnecessary discomfort. Too funny.
