It Was Hard But I Did It!

Recommended Posts

This may sound so silly but I just have to share and here is the only place I get the understanding support that I need right now.

Last night my daughter and I went out for a family camp meal at my son's boy scout summer camp. They were serving big, fat steaks and baked potatoes. OH YUM right?

To make things better MY hubby was the one doing all the cooking! YEA!!!! He was so very kind to start a NEW steak for me after I asked him and explained that mine would need to be cooked on foil because of CC with the grill grate. Mind you this was after he had already been working on a nice big steak for me that had sat ON the grate :( AND he had very carefully checked the ingredients of the seasoning pack for gluten. YEA gluten free!!

Well, yea until I realized that he was using the SAME tongs to flip my new steak that he was cooking on the foil. :( How could I tell him that I just couldn't risk it? I didn't want to hurt his feelings but I knew I did not want to be in pain for the next 2 days at least. So, I carefully said please don't be mad but.....

Well, he was so very kind about it and I looked over a few minutes later to see him with a NEW steak on a NEW piece of foil and he was flipping the steak with his fingers! Burning them quite bad by the way! But by then I was so scared of CC that I just nibbled on a baked potatoe that had been cooked in foil on the coals. (Hoping that will be ok.)

So, point of it is I resisted the chance of CC over and over even though I really could have sunk my teeth into one of those big fat steaks!!!!

And I don't think hubby was upset at me either!!

Awe, that is SO sweet that your hubby is understanding. I would have eaten the one he flipped with his fingers, but that's great you were able to resist. For the future, have them wrap the steak completely in foil and that way he can flip it without changing tongs. It may take a little longer to cook, but it will still cook just fine. I have done this with chicken and veggie packets on the grill with no problems.

Your hubby is a real keeper. I also would have eaten the one that he flipped with his fingers but it is okay that you didn't. The idea about wrapping the whole thing in foil was a good one.

Oh thank you for the idea to wrap it entirely in foil. I didn't even think of that!

Yes, my hubby is a keeper. He tries so super hard for me not only in the gluten area.

I really feel so bad for those that don't have understanding spouses.
