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.

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me. So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist. In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teac

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
