    smolder - enjoy having a child that loves to help in the kitchen. You can always schedule one day a week in which your son can make lunch/dinner (with your assistance of course). No matter if dinner is late - you have a memory that will be with you for a lifetime.

    nakabi amazes all of us with her recipes and never ending energy. I have no clue how she does it.

    nakabi-How do you do it? Everything you make sounds so in depth and complicated. Apparently I could take some lessons from you in how to prepare a delicious gourmet dinner with multiple little ones underfoot! sometimes I have trouble getting it together with just one running also doesn't help that he wants to help me, so sometimes something that should take 20 minutes ends up taking 45. At least he has an interest in cooking!

    heremeaj-mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm is all I can say!!! Have a wonderful time at the beach!

    jdouglas-I grill both outside (charcoal and gas) and inside. If Adam is home, we grill outside. If it's just me cooking, I grill inside.
    Mojaras are sooo good!

    heremeaj, enjoy your time and good food at the beach! Sending good thought for beautiful sunny skies, and balmy ocean breezes :)

    Nakabi, although I don't like fish giving me the eye when I'm getting ready to eat, the flavor of the mojaras sounds wonderful. You are a gifted, creative cook, my friend! How do you do your grilling -- outside? inside on a grill pan?

    Juanita, I have a few dishes too that I rarely make because my DW is not a fan. Then again, there are a few dishes she likes that I don't make either because I don't like them.

    Soft shell crabs and corn on the cob because we are at the beach!!!

    juanita-I'm bringing the kids over when I get off work :) I'll make mojaras tomorrow :)
