I don't "cook" often. In the sense of preparing, chopping, making, much of anything aside from kid-friendly meals of baked chicken, turkey, beef, etc. Nothing ever very special or what I want. My kids are beyond picky. One who won't eat anything but chicken, turkey, beef and carbs that are recognizable, he knows when I try to slip him something different, "What IS this?" (Or if given the choice, cold cereal.)
I wanted a freaking boiled dinner. While shopping last week – there were like three smoked shoulders left in the meat case. These do not come in a petite size. I now have a hugantic piggy on my stove, and ain't nobody gon eat it. Perhaps two of my kids will give it a try, my oldest and youngest will at least pick at it. My husband, no way. He might pick a carb out of the pot, but then it will taste "porkish." LOL.
It makes no sense, and is a huge waste. After I pick at it for a couple days, the dog will be in hog heaven.
