Greens From Daddy’s Patio: Daddy Over My Shoulder (Week 9)

Even though I’m getting more and more comfortable with gardening, Daddy is always watching over my shoulder.

Whenever I’m working with the plants, he usually says something like…

“Add a little bit of this!”

“Add a little more of that!”

OR

“Not too much!

“That’s enough!”

“Put it over there.”

“Move it over here.”

“You don’t need to do that.”

“Look here bae, do it like this.”

And when I get it just right, he reassures me with a super sweet …

“There ya go!”

I’ve lived my entire life anticipating those words when I’m in the midst of learning new things from Daddy.

If you listen VERY CLOSELY, you can hear him say that to me in previous videos 🙂

Anyway, today, I made more room for my spinach by replanting my rosemary and basil.

Best believe Daddy’s right there watching every step.

Enjoy the video and note that the voice-over near the end is not necessarily synced with the plants that are shown at the time.

Sunday Dinner with Lady G’s Son 10-16-2016

So last Sunday, I shared a shot of my Sunday dinner.

In that post I talked about how much I love to cook and eat.  I also shared that I learned to cook by watching Mama.

Well…

Apparently, I wasn’t the only one watching Mama; it seems that my dear son, Sir R, was taking a couple of notes of his own.

Ever since he was about 10 years old, Sir R, has been very interested in cooking. And, with that being the case, he would watch me, Mama and Daddy whenever we went into the kitchen to prepare a meal.

In addition, he watched episode after episode of “Good Eats” with Alton Brown.

Before I knew anything, this kid was preparing full course meals by age 11.

When I say full course, I mean FULL COURSE!

Did I tell you about the time he cooked the most delectable and succulent standing rib roast you could ever imagine when he was only about 15 years old?

YAAASSSSS!

No frozen pizzas and ramen noodles for this dude 🙂

My baby can throw down in the kitchen–as evidenced by the meal pictured above 😉

To be honest, I’m glad too.

I used to tell him, “You need to learn how to cook whatever you like to eat, I don’t want you marrying somebody just because she can cook your favorite dish!”

LOL!

Forgive me guys, I crack my own self up sometimes 🙂

Anyway, a couple of years after graduating high school and going off to college, Sir R decided to become a certified personal trainer.

He had already established and maintained a healthy lifestyle so I encouraged him to go ahead and make it official.

And so…

As a health nut  health enthusiast, and lover of good food, my baby boy digs creating nutritious versions of most any traditional dish.

To that end, he enjoys experimenting with unconventional ingredients in order to prepare balanced meals that are both cost effective and tasty.

Believe it or not, you don’t have to spend a whole lot of money to eat healthfully!

Anyway…

I really wish you guys were here to partake of this meal with us 😉

Any thoughts?  I’d love to hear them!  Meet me in comments 🙂

 

Enjoy the rest of your day and I pray that you have a blessed week !

Love Lady G and Sir R!
