Here’s a simple idea that Alison taught me. It’s perfect to make for breakfast for the child who refuses to eat cold cereal. I have one of those and it’s so
First, take a slice of bread and a cookie cutter. I use a heart shape because I want my child to remember that I love him while he’s eating. And also because I only have a heart shape cookie cutter.
Cook on the flip side until the egg white is firm, but the yolk part is runny and saucy. Then yell at your child to find his socks and shoes. (Please don’t go all maverick on me and leave out any of the yelling. The yelling is the most important part of this dish. It simply won’t taste the same without it.)
Once cooked, remove to a plate and then toast the cut-out piece of bread while you shout to your child that it is not your responsibility to keep track of his shoes and that you wouldn’t be a good parent if you did.
Pat yourself on the back because your child is actually fed and clothed before the bus arrives. Before he rushes out the door, yell that you love him very much and that he’d better stop dragging his coat on the ground because you just cleaned it!
Now do the dishes.
