There just is no way a man can make a woman happy even when he takes over the cooking for a change.

When a man volunteers to do the Barbecue, usually on a Saturday, the following chain of events is put into motion:

Barbecue Routine
1) The woman buys the food.

2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.

3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

Here comes the important part:

4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces and brings them to the table.

9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:

10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.

11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off.' And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....

That is exactly what happens, but I kinda miss it, guess I could do my own. My son n law does the same thing too..lol My daughter has solved a little of that problem. She has 2 grown girls they each make their favorite dish and I bring a dish and daughter basically ices up the glasses for drinks. Dessert is usually made ahead time by both the girls. We eat on paper plates, the heavy duty ones.thumbs up

bc, sounds bout right but what’s your point??? Lololololrolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing
BC, We are all responsible for ourselves. Our successes, failures, and most importantly, our own happiness. Others, such as friends, partners, and after our younger years, parents and family, are involved, but only in minor ways.
The belief and expectation that others are somehow responsible for our happiness is often the source of much pain and sadness.
Hi Mimi the point darling is that the woman is doing all the work but the man thinks she had the day off lol

Next peace Jenny
hplady see that does not sound too bad as you all pitch in. You could buy a small barbequen and start it again as you used to enjoy it peace

Hello again BC, It was me - Art that answered your blog not Mimi. I was just trying to be funny in hopes of Mimi reading it and giving me that “look.” very mad rolling on the floor laughing
Hi There Mr. Vier all true what you are saying but the facts here, are that some man believe that they are doing the woman a favor that is most likely because they never really help her out right any other time, Right? Right!
I had someone in my life one time who always needed to play Santa Clause. When he did something for me.
"Now don't expect me to do this all the time okay"? Lol Mr Vier I do understand what you said okay?
But in the meantime, it does take all kinds to make a world................peace
You sneaky you Art , lol I was thinking at first to address it too both of you.
So Art is my story true and do you believe You do all the work?.
Oh boy I am leaving myself open here for trouble hug hug peace
Hubby said fancy a bbq this Saturday, hmmm, I've invited the French class he says to that's 12 of us, hmmm says I and their partners, oh yes he says, so that's now 20. Off to the supermarket on my return he says I've invited our neighbours, that's another 4, hmmm and what about me and my mates says my daughter that's another 5, back to the supermarket. One bbq and me thinks really so while the men bbq I'm making a chilli and curry some day off.
Mimi I have to show this too Art because he will now understand you so much better.

9 Words Women Use (and Men Need to Know)

\"Fine\"
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
\"Five Minutes\"
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
\"Nothing\"
This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
\"Go Ahead\"
This is a dare, not permission. Don\'t Do It!
\"Loud Sigh\"

This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
\"That\'s Okay\"
This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That\'s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
\"Thanks\"
A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you\'re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says \'Thanks a lot\' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say \'you\'re welcome\' - that will bring on a \'whatever\').
\"Whatever\"
Is a woman\'s way of saying F-- YOU!
\"Don\'t worry about it, I got it\"
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking \'What\'s wrong?\' For the woman\'s response refer to #3. peace

BC applause

Lately, I’ve not been reading them blogs like I used to coz I have few other new addictions! laugh

Art still reads them on a regular basis and would fill me in on what’s going on here.

Anyway, gotta go coz I have a Malaysian girlfriend coming over for brunch in less than an hour!

Byeeeeeeeeee! wave
Bc too true lol, this often happened. I'd go shopping one day next day home from work to an empty fridge I don't think my daughter's friends parents fed them.
What about the new dishwasher I gave her for her last birthday? laugh
Sorry you got it twice now did not think you would come back here , glad you agreed next lol
MiMi enjoy your lunch with your Malaysian friend, did you make many friends from there now that you are in the US? Nice break to be able to talk your own language right? Be happy Mi Mi peace peace peace
Emmi, I can tell that you are enjoying every minute of your empty refreg. for all that it represents, a happy home........Can't ask for much more......... peace Jenny
doesdare2 Oh boy oh boy, Bet you listen to the ads saying give mom a new what ever for Christmas lol
Then remind her for the next many Years how lucky she was
Yep met you before lol peace
This is a lie !!

The thoughtful respectful man puts it on a plate prior to handing it to the woman, whom he treasures. No man would just hand hot grilled meat to his woman.
This is an irresponsible accusation. scold


grin
Of course it would be so in your way of thinking.
Remember the woman does almost all the work so of course she is holding the plate out to the man.
Than he puts the meat on the platter she is holding....................peace
Just remember my deceased husband. He was up to #4 when he decided to go inside the house and left some finished grilled meat on the table near the grill. He was out for around 5 minutes. When he came back, Ricky the poochie thug had almost half a kilo of meat to himself. We were left with just the veggies. There's no way a man can make a woman happy really. But he was able to make the poochie happy even for that evening only.

Oops! So sorry for the double entry.confused
My ex bought me a dishwasher too. I was bragging about it to the kids, cause I really liked it. Then my ex spoke up and said I didn't get for you, I got it to make sure my dishes are clean, not sure when you wash them. I didn't say anything cause we were with the kids, but I thought you're an a**, I thought that before, now you proved it.
Hplady, you'r man sounds familiar, better not say much more.
Hope everyone had a great barbecue, until the next time..................peace

My Malaysian girlfriend is back again today! She came earlier today coz she brought some ingredients for me to cook for her, some vegetarian curry.

She must be really desperate coz MiMi is not known for her cooking skills! rolling on the floor laughing

Deep fried tofu, okra, aubergine and potato curry.

She’s talking to my son now about college life in Omaha, that’s why I can excused myself and comment on the blogs. grin

By the way, we communicate in English, Manglish ( Malaysian mangled English rolling on the floor laughing ) Cantonese and a smattering of Malay.

Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday, Jenny teddybear hug bouquet
Emmy why should your friends parents feed their kids they KNOW you will, bet a lot of kids love to crash at your home...............peace

Mimi as always you are underestimating your talents, you can cook pretty good if you want to.
Wow that is a lot of languages, Cor is good at that too and loves to greet people in their own language.
We both have also a dialect, and can understand the one from each other, yet they are not alike.
Now be good Mimi I know that is not so easy for you as you are such a character for sure hug
Right Art?
MiMi, you are much smarterder than me. My one stepson used to tell me that he was smarterder than his brother.............
MiMi the languages that I know are all from the Germanic languages, so from the same family......
For you to know is so much more difficult like Malaysian and English is not even close to each other.
Plus they are very important languages to know.
So say after me, Mimi is smarterder lol
Did you friend survive your cooking today? hug ...................peace

This message from my Malaysian girlfriend ( 31 years-old ) was from last week. She was over at my place from 10.30am to 9pm. I packed a variety of food for her when she left. grin

I also packed some food for her to bring home.

She’s like a little sister to me. Very smart gal. Very focused in what she wants for her future.

She met up with my daughter when she went back to Malaysia for a 2-week holiday last December. I sent through her some gifts for my daughter and at the same time my daughter also handed her some gifts for me! laugh

My 22 year-old daughter had coffee with her and they chatted for a couple of hours. They hit it off right away coz they both have a lot of same interests.

My daughter is hoping to join me and her younger brother here in Omaha but unfortunately she couldn’t get an interview at the US embassy in Kuala Lumpur. It’s temporarily closed due to the pandemic blues
MiMi your friend is not only smart but very beautiful. See how she loved your food, just like I knew she would. Then took a lot home also, it sure must have been yummy..........
How wonderful to have your daughter and young brother to visit you in Omaha, what a feast that is going to be when this darn virus is over. Will that be their first time? You have not seen them for a long time right?
Is Art getting used to your cooking and for him strange food? .............peace ................. Jenny
MiMiArt
Art doesn’t quite like food with pungent spices. He keeps asking me not to force him to eat ‘my’ food. He prefers his type of food.

His daughter sent me a text 3 days ago...giggle

My daughter plans to reside here with me and her brother ( my son ). She has a 10 year US visa and visited Hawaii last year September. However, she’d be needing a different type of visa ( a K-2 visa ) in order to be able to get a green card.
Oh MiMi I am getting a bit of what is going on with both families, lol some like it hot and some like it cold.
How about something in between?
How wonderful to have your daughter and son all to be living with you, so more people who like it hot.
Poor poor Art.........MiMi have mercy!, you only have one Artie you know.............peace...... hug

First husband couldn't even make a sandwich. Second cooked, but never grilled and did it all, including dishes. My guy cooks for himself and the only thing he is allowed here is go get your own seconds, will bring stuff to kitchen.
Dad barely cooked, never grilled. Back then, we didn't know what that was. Unless one was in the wilds!dunno
But, he did make oatmeal and scrambled eggs and headcheese. Both of the first were better, mom said, then hers.
As far as the headcheese, it was an all day project. The house reeked of vinegar. Mom said he amazed her. It was a miracle there was a single pot left IN the cupboards!frustrated She could never figure out how he could dirty every single pot it seemed. Of course, she got to do all the cleanup!mumbling
Orzzz, Did not read your profile today, but I would be surprised if it did not say; "Must love to cook"
Do you believe some men pretend to be a bit stupid, just to get out of cooking? peace Jenny
Orzzz
Actually hate cooking. Only will do it for my man. In the case of first husband..no..idiot! His ma catered to the boys. One day I came home from work and he is sitting at the kitchen table. I said what is up. He said waiting for you to get home to make me a sandwich.wow doh I said how long have you been waiting..an hour.
When I told my parents my dad said, what? He didn't know which side of the bread to butter?!very mad
