One night that stood out in my mind is when she had made dinner for us after a very long and rough day at work, She placed a plate of jam and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. Not slightly burnt but completely blackened toast.
I was just waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast and would say anything. But Dad just ate his toast and asked me if I did my homework and how my day was. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mom apologizing to dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said:
“Sweetie, I love burned toast.”
Later that night, I went to tell my dad good night and ask him if he really liked his toast burned. He put his arm on my shoulder and said,
“Your momma put in a very long day at work today and she was very tired. And besides, A burnt toast never hurts anyone but you know what does? Harsh words!”
Then he continued to say “You know, life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people I’m not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like every other human. What I’ve learned over the years, is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys for creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right and have compassion for the ones who don’t.”
WHAT IS GIANT HOGWEED?
SYMPTOMS OF POISON
HOW TO AVOID THIS PLANT
500g ground beef
2 yellow onions
1/4 cup each - chopped parsley, chopped mushrooms and diced onion
1 tbsp ketchup * - see recipe in post below
1 tsp each soy and worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp each brown sugar and meat seasoning mix
1/4 c Panko bread crumbs
BBQ sauce - optional * - see recipe in post below
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Slice your onion in half length-ways and start to peel the layers of onion apart.
You want to keep the biggest layers of onion you can to stuff, however, make sure you're not keeping the tough exterior onion layers, that won't taste (or cut) very well.
Mix ground beef, diced onion, parsley, mushroom, as well as your spices, condiments and bread crumbs into a bowl and mix by hand.
Continue with the rest of your onion layers until your meatloaf mixture is gone.
The number of onion bombs will depend on the size of the onions you buy.
Wrap 3 slices of bacon around each bomb, you may need more bacon depending on size.
Secure the bacon with tooth picks so it doesn't unravel while it's cooking.
