For Mother’s Day, Sir Husband purchased a whole beef tenderloin. He knew I wanted something beefy. It makes a great Mother’s Day dinner. 🙂
I sat down at the computer to make copies of photos for parents at the co-op the next day. Sir Husband had started the grill and I assumed was grilling the beefy dinner. Dd#1 walks by and sees some smoke coming out the sides of the grill. Every time Sir Husband turns on the grill, one of the children will say, “DAD! The grill is on fire!”, but it is nothing and the Dad’s response from another room is, “Ok”.
Sure enough, Dd#1 yells, “DAD! The grill is on fire!” and the response was, “Ok!”
I can see from the corner of my eye that Dd#1 doesn’t continue on her way to wherever she was going. She stands and stares. I peek around her to see what she was staring at.
SIR HUSBAND!! THE . GRILL. IS. ON. FIRE!!!
Well, that got his attention and he came riding on his white horse running to safe his ladies. I; however, had enough brains to get the camera. I am a smart woman like that. I have my priorities in the the right order. Things need to be shared and the best way to share them is with pictures.
The next thing I yell is, “DID YOU BURN MY DINNER!” Yep, my priorities are in good shape.
Thankfully, he hadn’t put the beefy goodness on yet. Still have those priorities in the right order.
Everyone knows you can’t put out a grease fire with water, right? Sir Husband knows that too. The best way to put out a grease fire is to smother it. This fire was contained inside the grill, the best thing we Sir Husband could do was to leave it there. The other thing we Sir Husband could have done was cover it with sand or kitty litter. We didn’t have enough of either.
Sir Husband being a man, likes fire. He also likes water. To keep his ladies safe, he covers the gas tank and surrounding areas with water. Ooops, some water got down into the grease pan.
Oh wait, that wasn’t a ooops. Remember, Sir Husband, being a man, likes fire and water, …and well… his wife had a camera. What more needs to be said?
At the end of the exciting Mother’s Day event, the fire died down, the smoke subsided into our home, and Sir Husband ended up with a very nice clean grill. Just in time to grill the beefy goodness, for the very hungry wife and the rest of the family. (if she actually shares)
This man knows how to grill.
He grills the beefy goodiness to perfection.
Thanks, Sir Husband, for a wonderful Mother’s Day. The Fireworks made it extra special. 🙂
