Suck On This Vegans... Or People That Are So Close To Being Vegan But Can't Give Up Butter Or Brownies.

If it wasn't for butter or readily available, super good pastries and baked goods I'd be vegan.

That being said I can't think of a time I cooked mac and cheese until about two weeks ago. I got smart early. around eight, and gave up cheese and that was pre-mac and cheese cooking time.

But I found myself having to make a bowl for Miloh a few weeks back... And I'm not ashamed to say I had no idea what I was doing. I could follow the box directions but I'm all for tasting foods when cooking and there is no way in hell I'm gonna taste cheese voluntarily.

And then there are eggs... Honestly I can't think of a time I've ever eaten an egg (outside of the aforementioned baked good category). But one night a bit ago when I was trying to figure what I'd feed Miloh for breakfast the next morning, since it was my time for MF duty, I decided to make hard boiled eggs.

Luckily we have a little egg thing you throw in the water and it tells you when the eggs are done.

But it came time in the morning to open the egg and, as it was the first hard boiled egg I've ever opened, it was a huge pain in my ass. It took way to long.

So after a few subsequent attempts at trying to open a hard boiled egg in under five minutes I decided I needed a better morning egg strategy for Miloh's breakfast.

Enter the over easy egg.

Not sure why I decided I'd make an over easy, because I had/have no idea what the different varieties of cooked eggs are, but I thought it would be easy since it's half the name.

So using the google I found an Alton Brown recipe for them.

And I cooked it. And it looked right (I think). And Miloh said it was the "Best fucking egg he ever had." Or maybe he said  "good" and cranked his head up and sideways as he does when he said it. But what he meant is it was the best fucking egg he's ever had.

If you remember a post from long ago I always thought good dads were known for making good eggs... But since I don't eat them I'd have to switch from eggs to waffles.

Well now I make good eggs and good waffles.

Moral of the story: I rock. And eggs smell so freaking disgusting I can't understand why anyone eats them.

  1. I only like scrambled eggs. The rest of them are nasty. Brownies are delicious even if they do have egg. I love cheese.

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
