I Chronicles 29:11 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."

Just Don't Get Chicken On My Ceiling

The other day I was looking for a quick and easy lunch for the family that would use leftover things in my refrigerator, and also TASTE GOOD. So, I decided to make chicken quesadillas. Yum!

I have to admit I needed a little help. What with all the bean spreading, and chicken placing, and cheese sprinkling. I couldn't keep up. So I asked the Prince to get involved.

I would not say that I'm sorry I asked, just that I'm sorry he said yes.

No, not really. I am thankful to have a hubby who is so willing to jump in when I ask. The only problem is that he is a bit showy in his cooking style.

He was actually FLIPPING the tortillas. And not with a spatula either. So, I wanted to catch a picture of him in all his food flipping glory. I wish I had suggested an apron. Shucks.

Well, the kids went crazy. They thought it was funny, first of all, that Daddy would be cooking. Then secondly, when he started flipping actual food, he won the 'Coolest Parent Award'. Hands down.

The photo below shows actual footage of the flipping process, as well as his secret weapon. Apparently, it helps to open your mouth like you aren't really sure whether you're going to catch the tortilla, or just get chicken on the ceiling.

The circled red orb is the tortilla IN THE AIR. The yellow arrow point to his secret weapon, here labeled as helpful action.

The next photo shows a very proud Prince. Look at that face. I would eat anything he cooked. If he looked like that. You know you would too.

As my kids oooh-ed and aaahhh-ed while Daddy was cooking and flipping food like nobody's business, I was reminded that it is my job to make him their hero. To let him be the one to get their admiration. Everyone knows a girls tends to choose a hubby based on her relationship with her Daddy. And with a great Daddy like him, let him be the cool cook.

Pro 17:6 "Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers."

I want that for the Prince. I want them to look up to him and think he can do super-cool things, and the he does it for them. His princesses. Being a female, I already have that special thing with them. They will come to me later when they need advice about this and that, etc. But for now, let Daddy be 'Super Cook'.

They couldn't ask for a better Daddy. Or a cuter, I might add.

    Alright so I stuck around a bit after reading your Childhood Home entry and I'm glad I did. I love your thoughts on the dad/daughter relationship... I have a daughter and a really seriously wonderful husband, and how cool is it that I get to be the one to keep him in her spotlight. Now I know who I can safely brag to about him. HER! Awesome, helpful, fun post. I think that fun evening would have been worth a little chicken on the ceiling!
